Still have Hoyle card Games 2003. Used to work on Windows 7 in XP compatibility mode. After installing Sp/1 no longer works.. Will play intro video from disc but nothing without disc. Haven't played in a long time and had a few viruses since then but rest of system works fine and system passes file system check with no problems. Any help?

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.

The "galaxy of games card classics"will not run/play on my dell 1750 inspiron for some un known reason, can you fix this problem? '


You can run older programs in Windows 7. Here are 2 fixes:

1. Run a Program in Compatibility Mode in Windows 7. This one is easier, so try this one first. It should work.

2. Run Windows XP Mode with Virtual PC. This one more complicated because it involves installs and running a virtual system. Use only if you feel comfortable with instructions.

Can windows 7 run GTA IV.


Hi,
Running GTA 4 on windows 7 should not be a problem. You just have to run the installer using compatibility mode. Right click on the "setup.exe" then choose Properties. Go to Compatibility tab and tick "run this program in compatibility mode for", choose windows xp sp 3. That should allow you to install GTA 4 on windows 7. Bear in mind that you have to install GfW Live and the C++ 2005 files seperately which can be found in the disk as well. More importantly, make sure that your computer meets the system requirements for the game.
Here it is: System Requirements
Minimum System Requirements
OS: Windows Vista - Service Pack 1 / XP - Service Pack 3 Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8Ghz, AMD Athlon X2 64 2.4Ghz Memory: 1.5GB, 16GB Free Hard Drive Space Video Card: 256MB NVIDIA 7900 / 256MB ATI X1900
Recommended System Requirements
OS: Windows Vista - Service Pack 1 / XP - Service Pack 3 Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4Ghz, AMD Phenom X3 2.1Ghz Memory: 2 GB (Windows XP) 2.5 GB (Windows Vista) 18 GB Free Hard Drive Space Video Card: 512MB NVIDIA 8600 / 512MB ATI 3870
After installing the game and you're not able to run it, Try running the main executable file of the game in compatibility mode as well.

Hope this helps.

Hoyle card games 2005 just stopped working. It won't open on win 7 64 bit comp. I've reinstalled, tried clean install, nothing


You should download and install a special "Virtual PC" package for Windows 7. It is designed specifically for installing and running software that worked in Windows XP, but does not work in Windows 7.

I upgrade my windows xp to windows 7 and i have problem regarding on windows 7 i cannot play 3d games .. it says that a newer video card must be installed ... i cannot find a video card with my motherboard...


Find the newest driver here:

http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P5V800-MX&SLanguage=en-us

I am sorry to say that your mainboard does not have
drivers for your windows version.

Maybe you can use the 32 bit drivers for windows vista


You can also download a manual.
Its a AGP card your are looking for.
Not a PCI E card, that does not fit.
Maybe you can use a AGP card and driver
for windows vista you just have to
select compatible mode vhen you
install the driver.

NVIDIA and ATI has produced them.
Maybe you can buy a used one.

Hope this will help.

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.

Microsoft Windows 98 was an operating system used on a majority of personal computers from 1998 to 2000. Because of this, there are a variety of games available to play on Windows 98, but are incompatible with later versions of Windows. If you have Windows XP or higher, you have access to a "Compatibility Mode" that allows your computer to play those games. Activating compatibility mode is a simple procedure.

Right-click the file that you usually click on when you are trying to start a game.

Select the "Properties" option in the drop-down menu.

Select the "Compatibility" tab, then check the "Windows 98" box.

Select the proper video mode for your game under "Display Settings."

Select the "Apply" button to save your settings, and select "OK."

Double-click on your game's file to begin playing the game.
