I had this game and the only solution was to install Microsoft Virtual Server and create a Windows 95 installation.  Copy the CD to an ISO and run it in the Windows 95 environment and it works fine.

What are the minimum requirements for the game, and is it actually compatible with XP?

Also try to uninstall and reinstall the software and see if that helps..

Hope that helps!

I have a copy of starcon 3 but it won't install on my computer my os is windows 7 but it says that the game isn't compatable with my version of windows


Hi, welcome to Fixya. I hope my info helps you.
What it said is true. Starcon 3 is an OLD game, with compatability with win 95, and DOS. I think there may be a way for you to get to work though, right click on the installer program, and put the program in compatability mode, and tell it win 95 for the o.s. If that doesn't work, then download a program called DOSBOX, and run the installer with it, Dosbox is designed for just this sort of thing.
I hope that you do get it to work, as Starcon 3 was a really good game when it came out.

I wanted 18 wheels of steel haulin' on my comp and was wondering if it worked on windows 7


Hello suttonplaya3, The game may work natively on Windows 7. If not you could try to run it using Windows XP compatability mode in Win7. To change the mode to XP do the following:
  • Right click the games icon
  • Select Properties
  • Select the compatibility tab
  • Check the "Run this program in compatibility mode" box
  • From the drop down menu select Windows XP
  • Click Apply then Ok
  • Try running the program again.
The compatibility mode has helped me play some of my classic games in the past. Post a reply with any issues or please rate this solution if you found it helpful. Thanks, Edward

When i try to install big game hunter 3 it tells me i am using windows nt in fact i am using windows 7


Windows 7 is nt based you will have to install that game under the program compatability wizard and even the sometimes they don't work.
You might also check with the software maker to see if they have a fix for that game that will make it work with windows 7

Hi,

I have had same problem last time. What I did was run Program Compatibility Wizard and next set compatibility to win98 (dont remember if that is the one I choose, but you can test it). No idea what does it have to do with it, but it solved problem in my case. Hope it will help you.
