Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:)) why in windows 7 many games are not compatible - julyallan01_38.jpg

Olclauncher compatibility! When I double click on the game, the game window opens and when I click on single player offline then the window goes off and game does not start!


There is a file that you need to click on that will download all of the necessary files in order for the game to be compatible with Windows 7. Go to your C: drive. Open these folders in order: Program Files (x86), Phantom EFX, online casino, bin. The prelauncher file is a program that will write .bin and .psd files to the game program folder. Launch the olclauncher after the prelauncher program has finished downloading and writing the .bin and .psd files. These files make the game compatible with Windows 7. You can play the game on Windows 7 with the files.

There are no fix to that the windows 7 has a compatibility issue in software,applications or game. I think your game is to old to run on windows 7. The windows 7 compatible only to new games and not very old games.

SPECIAL EDITION SCRATCHES won't play on my windows 7 laptop. Chris


i think the problem is with compatibility with your OS. first, u need to check that your windows 7 is installed with 32bits or 64bits system. second, check your game compatibility (is it compatible with 32bits, 64bits, or both. if your OS installed with 64bit then your game only compatible with 32bits so the game will not work, and the contrary.

my opinion (probably wrong):
maybe your win 7 is installed with 64bits and your game only support 32bits system, so you need get another 'scratches' game that support 64bits. another solution (worst scenario), try to installing your win 7 with new win 7 with 32bits system.:)

Unfortunately not all games will work with newer versions of Windows even with the compatibility modes. Atari Scrabble is an older game, and Atari stopped providing updates for the game some time ago. At this point your best bet is to find a version of Scrabble that is compatible with Windows 7. Microsoft has a Windows 7 Compatibility page on their site. The website address that is below lists another companies version of Scrabble that will work with Windows 7. Check out your local PC game retailers or the Internet to find and purchase a copy or search to see if there are other versions that will work with Windows 7.
