Question about The Adventure Company Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

Hello there, My problem is with Worms: United and Reinforcements. I am trying to play on a Windows Vista (clearly well beyond the capabilities for playing such an old game) and the installer won't begin, saying that it's "incompatible with fullscreen mode". I attempt to run the installer in DOSbox, but that naturally makes the game unable to read any of my C:\ folders and therefore I cannot install the game to play it. Is there any way I could fix this problem and get the game to install, and thereby play it? Thanks for your time! -Reagan

Hello Reagan,

In DOSbox you are able to map / mount a local drive from the gues DOSBox software to the windows host machine so that DOSbox can see it. I do this all the time - I have a drive on my windows machine C:\oldgames - and I issue the command

SOURCE: I can not install Boggle on a Vista system

You could try to rightclick the setup.exe, select properties, go to compatibility and run it in Win95 compatibility. You can also try to make a shortcut to the game, then doing the above. There could also be a map called DIrectX on the disk. Try opening the executable in there, install DirectX, then try the game again.
Otherwise you're out of luck. Microsoft doesn't support old games, gets you to buy new ones. I don't like it either, but there's nothing you can do about it but switch back to Win95

Do they go the bathroom in the house? They get worms thru contact with infested soil or schitt. If they go outside for even just a bit then they are capable of getting worms.

ATTENTION OUT OF RANGE 74.7 kHz v:59.8 KHz


This means either your Refresh Rate or the resolution has been set (usually in the display settings of the operating system) beyond the monitors display capability. On a windows OS, go to START == CONTROL PANEL == DISPLAY == SETTINGS (for XP) or R click on the desktop and select SCREEN RESOLUTION for Windows 7 & VIsta. Use the slider to reduce the screen resolution to one that both looks good and fits within your monitors capability.

Hope This Helps FixYa! Please leave us some feedback if you found this information helpful.

Try plugging the printer in with no drivers and test it. This usually works as most printers do not need installation software because Vista has plug and play capabilities.

If this doesn't work, visit the HP website and choose drivers and software. Find your model number and download the Vista software or plug and play software.

Windows Vista Ultimate on Compaq nx9010


Hello,

 

I recommend you to use Windows XP for time being since, Windows Vista is new released  and make softwares might not work with vista as they are not compitable to vista.

 

However, if you wish use the Windows Vista then I suggest you to make a note of softwares that are not working in Vista  and then look forward for assistance of Particular software Manufacturer for patch of Vista driver or software to work with application.

 

So it is clearly an issue with softwares and not with Windows Vista.  My personal advice  you to start using Vista after 2-3 months as many software vendors started to release and work to  develope their application software with Vista.

 

hmm, let me tell you further . You can visit and check out  website of software vendor for any updates on Vista. This would help you. If you see any updates available, then please go ahead and try to download and install it.  This would work !!!1

 

I am sure that this should resolve the issue for you.

 

 if you need any further assistance you can mail me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com. I'll be glad to help you.

 

 

Bye....
