I am trying to run I love Phonics game my son got for Christmas on my new computer which is running Windows 7. It installs fine, but when you start it up, it says "Director Player has stopped working" and automatically shuts down. Is there a solution for this?

    Hmmm...I don't see either option when I right click on the CD icon -- neither compatability mode or run as administrator. Can you give me more specific instructions or have other ideas?

    Thanks so much! The shockwave download did the trick! Kudos to you!

Try first to install a newer version on the Director Player ( shock-wave player )from adobe..
http://www.filehippo.com/download_shockwave/download/af02ce99f404423ce8f86cbc24d49146/
if it doesn't work ..try this settings to add more virtual memory on it ..
Right-click on My Computer icon, and select Properties.
Click on the Advanced tab,
then select the Settings button within the Performance section.
In the Performance Options window, click on the Advanced tab, and then select the Change button in the Virtual Memory section.
Click the Custom size button...
Change the Initial size (MB) setting to 4000
Change the Maximum size (MB) setting to 4000
Select SET to accept the change, which will close the Virtual Memory window. Select OK to close the Performance Options window. And select OK to exit the System Properties window.

Hasbro MasterMind does not install on Windows XP or Windows 7 ! Do they have a newer version available ? I loved the game but it only played on Windows 98 ..... Anyone have any ideas ? Thanks...


Have you tried running the installer in compatibility mode? Right click on the installer (usually setup.exe or install.exe, and if you have it on a CD, you need to open the CD in My Computer as a folder by right clicking and choosing open), go to Properties -> Compatibility -> Check the 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' check box, and select 'Windows 98/Windows' ME from the drop-down menu. Apply the changes or click 'OK', and try to run the .exe -file. If the game successfully installs, and you can't still launch it, do the same to the game's launch .exe -file.

I have the cd rom disc stratego and I am trying to install it on windows 7 and it will install but it will not let me play it.. is there somewhere where I can buy the cdrom for windows 7 or somehow that I...


This game won't work on Windows 7 in any of the compatability modes. The only way to get this game to work is to run it in windows xp. The good news is that you can get free software from Oracle called virtualbox. Using virtualbox if you have a xp installation disk, you can create a virtual windows xp that runs within your windows 7. Stratego plays fine from within a virtual windows xp, provided that you play from the cd-disk not the virtual hard drive. Install the game normally in the virtual windows xp environment. After installation, to play the game, you must be in virtual windows xp, then double click the CD/DVD drive icon that looks like a bomb. If you try playing from any of the shortcut Stratego (also looks like bombs) launchers or the stratego.exe file installed on your virtual hard drive, the game will not work.Just go to My Computer in the virtual windows xp, and double click the cd/dvd bomb icon, and the game starts up fine.

Put the installation disc in to install game and my computer will not read the disc. We have windows 7. Is there a patch for the game that I can download to get the game to run?


The game should run fine on Windows 7 once you install it and then use this patch http://www.megaupload.com/?d=Q2WT4L09

Unrar using winrar and follow the text file for help.

Check the disk to make sure it is not scratched. Try running the setup program manually by browsing the disk. Either that or maybe there is an issue with your DVD ROM.

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.

Hello!
I just got off the phone with customer support and the fix for me was really simple!
Right-click on the programs shortcut on your desktop and choose Properties.
Click the Compatibility tab.
Under "Run this program in compatibility mode for:", select "Windows 98 / Windows Me" from the drop down menu.
Click Apply.
And that's all!
It worked for me! :)
