    My homeworld 2 runs very well on a macbook (4ghz) but it suddenly crashes while i'm playing... I don't know what to do...! I already have the 1.1.1 patch but it doesn't change anything...

    Same as the others, but I tried installing the update, but got an error saying the serial number check failed. Any suggestions?

Downlaod the 1.1.1 patch.
I'm having trouble with the sound--clicking in soundtrack--I turn down music volume, and it goes away, but is also present in voice tracks as well.  It worked once for me perfectly, and I can't remember what  I did to fix it the one time.

Deep Silver Wildlife Park 2: released in 2006.

Try these options.

Right click the launch Icon / Shortcut - Select Compatibility tab -
Under Privilege Level - Check the "Run this program as an administrator"
Click OK and try launch the game.

Failing that;
Run the game in Vista compatibility mode ( there should be 3 ) and see if that works.

Same method as above.

If not, try the XP modes.
Check the "Run this program....compatibility...." box and select a mode.

Hope this helps

Have you tried running the game in compatibilty mode? If not follow these steps.

1. Navigate your way to "My Computer" > "Local Disk (usually C:) > "Program Files (x86)" > and then the folder the program is stored in.

2. Right-click on the program launch icon and left-click on properties.

3. Click on the "Compatibility" tab.

4. Check the box that says "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"

5. Click on the arrow pointing down and select a previous version of Windows which you know the game is compatible with.

6. Click on "OK", and try to run the game again.

Hope this helps. If not, let me know the outcome and I'll try to assist you further.

How can I load the 32 bit program on a 64 bit machine?


Hi,

I will assume you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, which is a newer operating system then what the game was intended for. Microsoft Windows has a Compatibility feature you can use to run games in Compatibility mode. Once you install the game, you can right click on the game Icon(should be on your desktop) then choose properties. In the properties go to the Compatibility Tab and click Run program in Compatibility Mode and in the drop down box try selecting Windows Xp(any service pack). Also check the Run Program As Administrator. In some cases you can get the older games to run.

Since the game was released in 2002 it may have a few problems running on today's systems. I would first try running it in compatibility mode. Right click on the icon you use to launch the game and go to properties. From there click on the compatibility tab. Select the check box that says "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and then from the drop-down box select Windows XP (Service Pack 3). Then click Apply and OK. Then try launching the game again and see if it runs any better. If not, try it again but in compatibility mode for XP (Service Pack 2). Good luck!

I bought a digital copy of Airport Tycoon 3 and downloaded it. The game installation went fine but when I tried to open and play the game and error comes up saying "at3.exe has stopped working"...


I had this problem with this game.

Try right clicking on the shortcut (game icon), go down to properties, switch to the compatibility tab, click the 'run this program in compatibility mode' and put the pulldown options on XP (Service Pack 2), you might also try clicking the box at the bottom that says 'run this program as administrator'.

After making these changes press 'apply' and then 'ok' and then try double clicking on the shortcut again.

I have windows 7 installed on my pc.i installed cossacks II napoleonic wars properly,and when i try to start the game,i get information that the game can run only on older versions on windows (95,98 XP )....


Well, try this, we call this "compatibility" mode, most programs can be run on windows 7 with this trick.
I assume your Cossacks II Napoleonic Wars icon is on the Desktop,
Right-click the Icon (game's icon), select "Properties" and click "Compatibility" tab, select "Run this program in compatibility mode for" click the "Windows 95..." and select "Windows Xp (Service pack 2)", click "Apply" > "Ok" and try again.

If even after doing this, the game can't be played, then there's no option. The fact is that, this game is made to run on system with Windows xp and earlier version, but somehow if fortunate, it's possible, not will all software, some may work, some may not.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
