I put the disc into my Windows 7 laptop. It let me install the Let's Ride Dreamer Game with no problem. But when I try to install the Let's Ride Corral Club the InstallShield Wizard comes up then disappears after a few second. Then the "Disc Chooser" window says its not responding. I would like to install this game, please help!

Windows 7 is no longer supported by Microsoft so there may be conflicts between the systems
put the disc for the game in a cd and go to computer and run the disc from the cd icon

To make the all the files of the game compatible to Windows Vista you need to install the game and then make changes to the game exe file.

Some game ".exe" file (executeable file) would let you make changes in the Compatibility option, whereas older games might not give that option at all.

You can still try to make the game compatible for installing it on the Windows Vista by following the steps below.

1. Insert the game disc in your CD-ROM drive, if the game setup or the autorun starts, exit it.

2. Open "Computer", Right Click the Cd Drive which has the game disk in it and select "Copy".

3. Go to your "Desktop" right click and then select "New" and click on "Folder" this should create a new folder on your desktop.

4. Open the New Folder and then Right Click and select "Paste".

6. After all the files are copied to the "New Folder" without any error messages then locate the file "Setup.exe" or "Setup" and right click and click on "Properties".

7. In the new window click on the "Compatibility" tab and run the program in compatibility mode for "Windows XP Service Pack 2" and then click on "Apply".

8. After applying changes double click on "Setup.exe" or "Setup" to launch the installation.

9. After the game is installed go to the game directory and find the "LetsRide.exe" and click on "Properties" and repeat step no.7

You can delete all the files copied from the CD after completing the installation

The game files need to be copied to the hard drive because the files on the game disk would not let you make changes while on the disk.

There are lot of files that need to be changed in order to get full functionality and to communicate with operating system and the hardware, hence there is no guarantee that the game might run even in cases where you will successfully install an older version of the game with the above mentioned steps.

The same set of steps can be used for installation of older games installation on Windows Vista.

I keep getting the "wrong disc inserted error". I'm using windows 7 with virtual box, and I've made an .iso file of the actual install disc. I installed the game onto a virtual machine (running windows xp)...


OK, so most Discs have a key hardcoded into the actual disc. when you do an ISO of the disc, the game won't play.
these are anti-piracy tactics. Playing games off and ISO is ******* in most places.

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.

Hey 1323164 you were right. I was having this same problem trying to run this game on Windows 10 but what ended up fixing it was opening up the folder on the disk, running the setup file in compatibility mode for Win XP (service pack 3), and running it in administrator mode. Then in the setup I ran custom install, and selected the Direct X install and selected "will not be available for program". Basically it would not be installed with the program. Then I pressed next and it installed and runs great! :D Thank you so much for that hint!

Cant install sims 2 double deluxe.


Hi there, is the disc damaged at all? if it is, but not very deep scratches, try polishing the disc/disc's, with a very soft cloth. make sure you clean the disc from centre outworse not side to side like most people do, if there is any stains/marks on the disc, try watching them off my damp soft cloth and cleaning it gently, and then dry with enough soft cloth inwards out again.

Also go to your program files making sure there isnt any semi installed versions of Sims, if there is delete the folder for the Sims 2 Double Delux and try again :)

Also alot of games dont install with windows vista, why i am still using windows Xp, untill windows 7 comes out to the public.

Hope you found this helpfull.
