Right click on the game icon or shortcut. When the menu opens, go down to properties and left click. A window will open, click the compatibility tab then click the check box "run this program in compatibility mode for:" Then click the drop down menu beneath the check box and click "windows 95 or 98" click apply. Should get you going.

I want to play Turok Evolution on Windows 7


Works fine despite having numerous issues within the game. I have never had a problem installing it or getting it to run. I am using Windows 7 64 bit Professional. I own an actual PC copy of the game, so I am not sure where you got your version.

Space empires II wont run on windows 7


If compatibility mode doesn't work, the game is probably too old to be played on windows 7. You could use an emulation software to run an older windows version and play the game. Otherwise, Space Empires 2 being such an old game won't run on Windows 7. Sorry!

The lord of king game is not working on windows 7 32 bit


A couple of things to try:
1) Running in compatibility mode: Rightclick the executable and goto properties, under the compatibility tab, play with the settings.
2) Make sure all of your drivers and directx are the latest versions.
3) Run as administrator.
4) If this is an old game, try downloading an old version of direct x from when the game was new. Install the old version and use the version of directx diagnostics included with the old copies install files, this will give you options that the newest version of directx may not have. (Useful trick for running REALLY old games) NOTE: Don't forget to switch back to the current Directx if you use option 4.

Hope it helps,

I found an old pc game that will not run on windows 7 it is called sonic R


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

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: http://www.essjae.com/virtualization/WinVPC-InstallingWin98.pdf

If this didn't fix your issue please let me know. Hope this helped you!

Alternative Method:
1.Get Windows XP installed and enjoy your playing.
OR
2.(Not Recommended)Find other game to replace this since this is a really old version, but EA didn't come up with a new version.
Can't Help much. But effort tried.

I am looking for Swift card games that is compatible with Windows 7


Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:)) julyallan01_52.jpg

Windows 7 incompatibility


If you have Windows 7 Ultimate, it comes with a Windows XP mode that allows you to emulate windows xp. If you haven't already tried right clicking the exe or shortcut and clicking the compatibility tab and setting it to windows xp service pack 2 (not 3 for some strange reasons)

Soltek motherboard boot problems


Possibly. The machine may be overheating during the startup process. Also, if you are running an old version of windows. 98,95 upgrade and it should fix the problem. One more tip, go into your BIOS, by hitting the F1,F2 or Del or F10 key and then select and enter load failsafe settings. If you cant even get into the BIOS, check that the CPU fans are operational inside the case, if they arent replace them, if they are. Look for a small silver battery called the CMOS batterdy, take it out for about 5 minutes then put it back in and this should fix your problem.
