Sonic R was developed for Sega. A version was released for Windows in 2000 and an XP version was released in 2004. The latest version to be released for a PC was in 2007. No support for Windows 7.

Without knowing what the game is, or which paltform it was intended for, this is difficult.

You can run Windows 7 in compatibility mode for earlier versions of windows.
Click on Start then HELP topics and search for compatibility mode, follow the directions given

For older (Dos based games), thry this link

If this solution was not what you wanted, kindly don't just give me a 1 star, rather don't vote on it. I offer this advice for free

Sonic the Hedgehog CD PC version Windows 7 error. After installing the original gold colored Sonic the Hedgehog CD, and the patch for the program, Sonic CD loads the intro screen, then freezing, and a...

Hi, welcome to FixYa!

Forgive me, but I remembered that Sonic the Hedgehog a rather very old program, which is designed to be running in Windows 9x/ME. I bet that's why it's demanding an MCI driver because it's not compatible with Windows 7.

There are 2 solutions for this.

First choice is you can try to use compatibility mode to run this program. Right-click on the .EXE file of the games (or you can use also right-click on the shortcut on Desktop or Start menu), then go to Compatibility tab, check "Run this program in compatibility mode for", then choose "Windows 98 / Windows ME".

Second choice, you can use VirtualBox, install Windows 98SE or ME on it, and then install the DirectX, remember to install VirtualBox guest addition as well, configure Shared Folder so your Virtual Machine can access to your host OS, then install the game and played it inside your Virtual Machine.

I hope my solutions are working. Thanks for using FixYa!

Hi, phoogland!

Older products aren't compatible with newer OS. The best way you can play these games is probably by emulating a virtual PC. Try installing Windows 98 on a Windows Virtual PC.

Here's a link to a detailed manual:

I have tried everything, how can i run this program? I have windows 7 64-bit and i need help!! Any solutions?

This is an older game so it may not be possible, but there are a couple things I would try. I have linked to sites with a full description of what is needed for each suggestion.
Compatibility Mode and Set CPU Affinity:
patch your game:

A quick search found other users who got Blitzkrieg to work, but I found none that were using Win 7 64 bit. 64 bit versions of windows seem to have more compatibility issues with older software than the 32 bit.
Assuming you have tried all of this, you might consider a dual-boot option for Win XP, or get an older PC for this and any other Win XP games (that don't like Win 7). I have found several of these.

I have a game called "the Simpsons Hit & Run"

What about Windows 8? Windows 98/ME is not an option. I tried the steps above with Windows XP (Service Pack 3) and Windows Vista (Service Pack 2) and Windows 7. It doesn't work in any of them?

I have a OLD came called Babyz (it was made in 1999) and i got it and installed it... But i cannot play it! When ever i click Babyz and try to open it a error message pops up and says "Sorry, Babyz could...

The thing is '.dll' type files are a lot of important to run any application and I think that the disk dont have it already in it so there might be a disk problem or this could be because its too old because modern versions of windows like vista, 7 or xp cannot play old games or apps. Your pc probably could play any of the modern games.
Best regards

I have a Windows 7 laptop, and I just bought Carnivores: Ice Age for some nostalgia. But now, after I have bought it and installed it, it will not run. I've gotten no error message describing the problem....

Hello VincentS,

Right ... Nostalgia (I had forgotten my solitaire games...
I used to let my hands do speed runs when trapped on
so running (old ) games (et al) is NOT AN ISSUE.

you have an old Windows 98 system... run it there
Pentium, see below for requirements)

There are basic system requirements...
Carnivores Ice Age Specs

(I am an old "systems" guy so I try to stick to the
BASICS with PCs. (still running 98 and XP... ) only now skipping everything and jumping to Windows10

To move it forward you must run windows 98
compatibility mode...
I had to look on the internet.. and found you a pretty good discussion (circa 2009).

You just made me remember to check my coolant level before I fire up my OVERCLOCKED 98 system...
that could have been painful... (fried Celeron - Yum)

Hope it helps!
