Trying to play gangsters 2 on my laptop, with windows vista. I haver changed the compatability to 2003 service pack and run as administrator. It seems to install fine but then comes up with a message saying "this programme will not run without the CD-ROM in the drive". But the cd is in the drive and i don't know why it won't work. Any help please?

I had almost the exact same problem when I tried playing on the weekend, I could play immediately after installing but after I closed the game when I tried to reload it I had the CD-Rom missing message....

I managed to get round it eventually by changing my display settings to 800x600 pixels.

To do this right click on the desktop and go to personalize, then go to display settings, then slide the resolution right down to 800 by 600....

Good luck, let me know if it works.

Hi,
Although the game wasn't designed to run on Vista, it still can! Here are some instructions to help you. This might help very well.

1. Install LEGO Star Wars.

2. When it's installed, right click on the LEGO Star Wars icon.

3. Click Properties.

4. Click the Compatibility tab.

5. Tick the box saying Run this program in compatibility mode for...

6. Click the drop-down menu under the sentence and click Windows XP (Service Pack 2)

7. Click Apply then OK.

8. Right click on the LEGO Star Wars icon again and click Run as an administrator.

NOTE: If you are using a Standard User Account, then you will need an administrator's password to play. After the password has been put in, the game should start after a few seconds.

Hope this Helped!

The Learning Company CD Rom Game Liberty's Kids will not play on my Vista laptop. In will install, but not play.


Right-click on the icon for the game in the start menu or on the desktop (if one was placed there) and select Properties. Click on the Compatibility tab. In the section marked Compatibility Mode, select the checkbox and from the drop-down list choose Windows XP (Service Pack 2). Click OK and try running the program using the modified shortcut. If you get any error messages about insufficient permissions, you may need to go back to that same tab and select the Run as administrator option at the bootm of the property page.
