They do not work in XP? They should, if not, sometimes you can run the compatibility wizard by going to Start-->Program Files-->Accessories-->Program Compatibility Wizard

Akilesh yadav hp laptop not install windows xp


If it is an older computer, the motherboard may not accept an XP installation. I have older desktops that will not accept an XP install but work fine with Win 98 and ME.

If newer model the problem could be with the disk or the cd reader. A defect in either will prevent an install.

CANNOT PLAY BICYCLE PINOCHLE SINCE UPDATING COMPUTER PLAYED BICYCLE PINOCHLE ON WINDOWS 98, CANNOT PLAY ON WINDOWS 7


Unfortunately, due to changes in the OS and how programs run, a program written for Windows 98 will not run under Windows 7 directly.

Even the compatibility mode will probably not work unless your version of Bicycle Pinochle for Windows was written for XP as well as Windows 98. (The WinXP version would possibly run under the Windows 7 32-bit version; it won't work under the 64-bit OS. To find your version of Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the version title ends with x64, you have the 64-bit OS. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.)

You need to either upgrade your game software or get an older version of Windows running somehow. This could be a virtual computer (runs inside your Windows 7 computer if your hardware permits it), a second machine or a dual boot computer. For Windows 98, you will need a licensed version of the OS for any method. Check a nearby Windows User's Group to see if anyone there has the OS.

If your version of Pinochle could run under Windows XP and you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate (or upgrade to them), you can run a virtual version of XP for free. In this case, download and install (in order) Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Then install the software in the XP computer as if it were the only computer running. (The compatibility mode didn't work inside XP mode for software written for Windows 2K so I doubt a Win98 program will work.)

An XP version of Bicycle Pinochle was offered by Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/games/bicycle/card/ . A Windows 7 version of Single Deck Pinochle is here: http://www.sac-irca.com/pino.html .

I wish that I had better news for you.

I brought my old big game hunter 4 out to play on my windows 7 but it will not allow me to shoot an animal please help


Try by right-clicking the executable for the game (should be in the install folder) and go to Properties. Then go tot he "Compatibility" tab, on the first area, click the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and then select either "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)" or "Windows XP (Service Pack 3)" and then, at the bottom of the window, check the option that reads "Run this program as an administrator" hit the "Apply" button and then the"Accept" button. This is made because old games don't always run the same in a newer computer than they used to in older ones. The run as an administrator option is because older games created folders or files in the install folder, since this is on the "C:" hard drive and Windows 7 has protection over it, the game might not work, hope this worked.

Try using the XP compatibility wizard. Start > Programs > Accessories > Program Compatibility Wizard. There are ways to dual boot 98 and XP, but there are a lot of details involved. It requires a lot of research. Best to do a Google search for "dual boot windows 98 and XP". Here is one result:

I have a windows 98 system bios and i wish to Put a differnt Hard drive in that has windows xp on it . Is there a way to do this


Hi
It probably won't work. Win 98 machines not only had older BIOS but also the processor was older and most importantly the video was older. XP may just not be able to recognize these parts. In my lab I use an old Dell laptop that was made specifically for Win 98. I was able to install XP but the graphics stay in four color mode as there were no drivers ever written for XP. Also the hard drive with XP was probably formated using NTFS while Windows 98 (unless modified) only recognizes FAT. Good luck and sorry

Get script error message whenever you move the mouse


Is it an older game? Just for fun you could try Windows 98 compatibility mode. Right click whatever icon you use to launch the game, click the Compatibility tab up top. Then click the checkbox "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" try Windows 98. Secondly, you should uninstall the game, reboot, reinstall the game.
