Windows 7 is way to new for the game, but you can try copying the files to a folder on your computer, right click on the install file and troubleshoot compatibility. From there you should be able to set it to run under windows 95 settings. If that does not work, then unfortunately you will not be able to use that game on your new computer.

Hope this helps.

Can I download hoyle casino 3D on windows 7?


You can certainly download it. It just means it was designed for Windows 2000. More than likely you will have to run an app like VirtualBox in order to get it to play correctly. Read the article below and decide if it's something you can handle or if it's too much trouble.

Article:
http://www.techradar.com/news/gaming/how-to-make-old-games-work-on-windows-7-969445?artc_pg=2

It basically says to get VirtualBox for old Windows games and DOSBox for old dos games.

I have windows 7 and trying to install my solitaire games cd. It saids it is not compatible, Is there any way to overside this?


A lot of your older games, especially those designed for Win 95, 98, 2000 will not work on current generations of Windows. What you could try to do is run emulation software to emulate one of these environments. The only drawback to this is that not only will you need the emulator (which is usually fairly cheap), you would also need a legitimate older copy of windows to install.

Your only other real option would be to browse ebay and maybe find an older comp that someones just looking to get rid of. Depending on your level of expertise setting up the rarely used emu software this may actually be a quicker and less stressful route.

Other than that, I can't really think of any other options you would have other than the Windows XP mode if your version of Win 7 is fortunate enough to be Professional, Ultimate, or Enterprise. If you are lucky enough to have one of those than this link should put you in a good direction.

I am trying to install an old sierra hoyle solitaire from the CD, which loaded the game ok but when I open it it tells me that I require a 64 bit version. I have Windows 7. Is there a patch available?


you can try running it in compatibility mode, when installed right click the desktop icon, then go to bottom of list to properties, then on the thumb nails, look for compatibility look in the list for what ever program it was made for ie windows xp, windows 95, then try that there are more settings there which may help...hope this helps

Trying to install an older Hoyle Solitaire and Mahjong game


Once you insert the CD, go to Start -> My Computer, and Double Click on the Drive that has the Hoyle Picture. This will either start the Installer/Auto-run window, or it will open a series of files. Double click on Setup.exe if it does not autorun.

Hoyle Casino Games 2008 for Windows XP


Here it is:
Since I had bought the game at BEST BUY I took the second game down there and marched to the GEEK SQUAD counter and told them THE sales people said this woould work on my Windows XP computer. (Obviously it didn't I said.) I told them to take the disk and check it out and TELL me what I needed to do and what the problem was. They did and it loaded on their computer beautifully! WHAT WAS THE PROBLEM? Answer: I needed a DVD DRIVE. HOW DID I SOLVE THE PROBLEM?...I went to OFFICE MAX and they told me to buy the EXTERNAL DVD RECORDER for $99.00. It would then load up and play my game. It did just that and I love the game SO much....I am now going to go back to best buy and buy the Card games and the Boardgames!!!! I DID NOT NEED TO PURCHASE YOUR ANSWER FOR THE $9.99 price. I HOPE THIS HELPS EVERYONE WHO IS HAVING THIS TROUBLE WITH THESE GAMES...INCIDENTLY, I figured how to get administrator's priviledges to play the new games. AND it's not a little picture with your name and computer administrator under it. It will say ADMINISTRATOR in big letters and you log on to this....the trick? As soon as you turn the computer on rapidly keep pressing F8 until you get to a message screen that says safe mode...arrow up to this, click on it, and then do what it says on the screen..................
