Sorry my area of expertise is strictly TVs and large appliances. I know hardly nothing about computers except the power supply repairs.

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

I am unable to install hunting unlimited 4.Is it vista compatable?


It seems that Hunting unlimited 4 is only for systems up to Windows XP....
Try installing the game in compatability mode...might work...
explore the game cd
look for the setup.exe or install.exe
right click and view properties
look for the compatability tab
under compatability click the box that says run this program in compatability mode ....make sure you choose windows xp then ok the window
now double click on the exe file that you´ve just changed and see if that works

You could try this.

To run the Program Compatibility Wizard
  1. Start the Program Compatibility Wizard.
  2. Follow the instructions in the wizard.
clip_image001.gifNote
  • To start the Program Compatibility Wizard, click Start, click Help and Support, click Find compatible hardware and software for Windows XP, and then, under See Also in the navigation pane, click Program Compatibility Wizard.
To set the compatibility properties for a program manually
  1. Right-click the program icon on your desktop or the shortcut on the Start menu for the program you want to run, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the Compatibility tab, and change the compatibility settings for your program.
clip_image001.gifNotes
  • The Compatibility tab is only available for programs installed on your hard drive. Although you can run the Program Compatibility Wizard on programs or setup files on a CD-ROM or floppy disk, your changes will not remain in effect after you close the program.
If this doesn't work you will not likely be able to play them.

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!

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.
