Hi

i would install Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit full install for gaming !!!
Now if this isnt working for the games you play, it could be a series of factors involved here .if you were using Windows XP 32 bit and you migrate to Windows 7 , 32 bit -- there will not be any issue -- is this the case with the OS you are currently using ? what about RAM -- did you maximise the RAM capacity in your computer ? i assume you did, because RAM is inexpensive today. if not, optimise to maximum RAM

DEPENDS WHAT GAMES ARE NOT WORKING WITH Windows 7 --

see these links to get a better undesratnding and what you could do to correct your issue.

If you are having trouble with windows 7 while your playing game(s). You need to downgrade your operating system to windows XP. But before that, try to right click the game icon and choose run as administrator.

Will cfs3 work with windows 7


Any computer games have system requirements needed. take a look at the system requirements before you install the game. The HDD, video card, RAM, etc. If your PC passed the said requirements?.... that game maybe work even if you had win 7, win 8, vista or xp.

Dear! First of all I want to tell you that there is no version of Windows Server 2005. Many programs of Windows XP do not work with Windows 7. For this you need to download and install Windows Updates from Microsoft, they may be able to make a compatibility between the Win XP and Win 7.

Hoyle card games 2005 just stopped working. It won't open on win 7 64 bit comp. I've reinstalled, tried clean install, nothing


You should download and install a special "Virtual PC" package for Windows 7. It is designed specifically for installing and running software that worked in Windows XP, but does not work in Windows 7.

East West Fron or Operational Art of War able to be played on Windows 7? Are any of these games out there updated?


I got talonsoft eastfront II to run on my windows 7 laptop by using two pieces of software. First I use vmware player and created a virtual machine with a winxp install. Second, I ripped the original game CD using alcohol. This creates an image that preserves the special formatting that is necessary because of the SafeDisc copy protection that is used in this talonsoft game. I mount this image using alcohol since my laptop does not have an optical drive. The vmware player sees the mounted image as a normal cd drive with the original game cd in it. I can install and play eastfront II in the win xp virtual machine. I installed the 1.02 patch. No other special settings were necessary. All features appear to work with this setup. The videos play, the unit viewer works (help files with transparency does not work in win 7 normally), background music and sfx are streamed off the virtual cd.

I recently picked up an older game, Heroes of Might and Magic IV get home and install. Install wizard runs fine except for one thing despite the fact it correctly identifies all my hardware, it tells me...


I have Heroes of Might and Magic 5 Running on Win 7. There were many patches to install before this title worked(on my computer). Have you installed all the available updates for it?

Here are 2 sites that have the compatibility options:
http://techpaul.wordpress.com/2009/06/28/compatibility-tricks-for-old-programs-new-machines/
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/316-compatibility-mode.html

If that does not work, you can also try to set up XP mode in Win 7: (Note: you need to have Win 7 Pro, Enterprise, or Ultimate for this one) Win 7 Home Premium does not support XP Mode.

I have tried everything, how can i run this program? I have windows 7 64-bit and i need help!! Any solutions?


This is an older game so it may not be possible, but there are a couple things I would try. I have linked to sites with a full description of what is needed for each suggestion.
Compatibility Mode and Set CPU Affinity:
http://techpaul.wordpress.com/2009/06/28/compatibility-tricks-for-old-programs-new-machines/
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/316-compatibility-mode.html
patch your game:
http://www.fileplanet.com/124619/120000/fileinfo/Blitzkrieg-v1.2-Patch

A quick search found other users who got Blitzkrieg to work, but I found none that were using Win 7 64 bit. 64 bit versions of windows seem to have more compatibility issues with older software than the 32 bit.
Assuming you have tried all of this, you might consider a dual-boot option for Win XP, or get an older PC for this and any other Win XP games (that don't like Win 7). I have found several of these.

Will it work on windows 7


Dear, it has been reported by many users that this game is correctly running on Windows 7 without any hack or smth. BTW if problems may happen, there's also a feature called "XP mode" supported in Win 7 Ulti, which should ensure alost 100% compatibility with XP
Please rate my solution ++++ if it was helpful, or feel free to ask for more information. Thank you

Drakan order of the flame engine crashes when i start a new game. i have windows 7 but im running as admin and in compatability mode for win xp sp2. what else can i try?


You could try installing the DirectX version the game uses. (probably on disk)
You can also try to download this Windows Virtual PC.
Windows Virtual PC emulates Windows XP on your Windows 7 PC, so that you can run older applications that won't run on Windows 7 otherwise.
You will however need a processor capable of virtualisation.
Virtualisation check and download here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx
After installing Windows XP Mode you will need to install the game again in this XP emulator, but after that it should run fine.

I hope this helps,
Yannick.
