Try running (or installing) this game (whatever it is) in compatability mode.

To do so:

  1. Open Windows Explorer.
  2. Location the application executable.
  3. Right click the executable and click the Properties option.
  4. Select the Compatibility tab.
  5. Select the Run This Program in Compatibility Mode option.
  6. From the drop-down list, choose the operating system i.e. XP or win2k
  7. If necessary, select the option to run the program as an administrator.
  8. Click OK.
hope this works for you

Cant download magellan driver for 2000 have new software but cant install driver i have windows vista


there is no specific driver for your gps, windows installs this automatically.

assuming the gps is working correctly, it will be installed automatically.

try another usb slot on the computer..if that doesnt work, reboot the pc and try again. if neither of those suggestions work, find a friend that is running windows XP.

vista should find it but youll probably have better luck with xp

Help game doing my head in lol


Vista is trick like that.
  1. Un-install it fully, then re-install it.
  2. But before you play it you have to right click on the shortcut and go to properties and click the button that tells it to run as if it is xp.
  3. Update the game, there should be a few of those.
Well and give yourself permission to play the game. Vista is bad at that.

You should be good. Let me know how it goes.
