I have an older version of Compton's "Real Science" . Is it possible to install this on my new computer running windows 7

Not exactly. If you have windows 7 professional, or ultimate, you can try installing windows XP mode. Go to microsoft's website for it. you will then be able to install the program under the new virtual XP installation, and it will then be available for use under XP mode programs list. it will run in an XP style window. It's pretty neat. Otherwise, it's quite difficult to make 16 bit programs to work on a 64 bit operating system. there are ways, but it takes a great deal of computer know how, and how to work with some fiddilly software.

Recently purchased a new computer with windows 7 and the version I have says it won't install. Is there a new version that is compatible with windows 7 available?

What version of Windows 7 are you running? You may have to run in XP compatible mode. You can do this by right clicking the installer/application and going to properties. Then go to the compatibility tab. In here you can select different options, I would suggest checking the "Run this program in compatibility mode for: " option and then selecting the operating system the program was built for. I have heard that others were able to run this version on windows 7 using this technique. Hope this helps!

My disc will not instal on my new computer with wionows 7


Please ensure that the software that you install on the computer is 64 bits as Win7 is a 64 bit operating system. You can not run a 32 bit software on it and run it. The softwatre has to have a line saying 64 bit compatible. Then only will it install.

Sorry to burst your bubble but thats how the computing world goes.

The program won't run on new computer

Try running in compatablilty mode. If your new machine is 64 bit, many older programs will not run, and you need to get a newer version of the program, not always available....

I bought a new computer. When I tried to run

To be honest, there are only two options.

1. Go to the sierra online website and see if you can get a 64 bit version of the game

2. Get an entirely new OS of windows (a 32 bit version) and then try installing
