well, i thought that windows 7 would have been developed to be compatible with ALL of the previous systems and programs that they were compatible with. as it is, windows 7 DOES have a way in the control panel that helped me out... there's actually a link in the control panel called "run programs made for previous versions of windows" it took a few tries to get the right setup for the game, but it's pretty self explanatory. sometimes it takes a couple of tries to start it up, but now i CAN play Zoombinis on my windows 7 pc.

SOURCE: Zoombini's Logical Journey won't start up

If the program produces an error right after hitting the Play button, I had success by launching the file Zoombinis Logical Journey.exe in compatability mode using Window 98 / ME and 640 x 480 resolution. The shortcut that is created during install points to TLCRUN.EXE which was what caused my error.

How can install zoombinis on window 7


You should navigate to the setup file on the disc, right click, select 'Properties', choose the 'Compatibility' tab, select the 'Run in compatibility mode for:' checkbox, select 'Windows 98/Windows ME'. Then run the setup program.

Alternatively, you could right click on the setup file and choose the 'Troubleshoot Compatibility' option.

The problem here is that you likely have Windows 7 x64 which has little support for 16 bit programs. You may be able to run your program in Windows Virtual PC (XP mode) if you installed it, but the program will likely run rather slowly.

If the solutions I have provided do not work, then I hate to say this, but you are out of luck.

I have an old zen micro model # dap-md004 and im using a new laptop using windows 7. why can i not inatall my installation cd. can i download installation programme from your creative site. thank's.


Unfortunately, there is no update for this driver.

You may wanna try the compatibility setup.

1. Load the CD contents and Right Click the set up file
2. Click Troubleshoot Compatibility

Win 7 should do an automatic test to find the best way a drive should be installed. Just follow onscreen instruction.

Hope this helps.

Can't install "message in a


I found a possible solution for this problem with another older Nancy Drew Game; I would try this solution and see if it helps with your problems.

The game is too old to run on Vista (assuming that's what you have) but it's easy to fix.

Just do this:
•First, uninstall the game.

•Next, reinstall the game--but don't do AutoPlay. Instead, go into my computer, right-click on the game's icon, and choose "explore".

•You need to then find the "setup" icon, and choose "properties". There's more than one "setup" icon, but only one that allows you to choose "properties".

•After that, go to the compatibility tab, and check the box that says something like "make compatible for"...choose XP, or ME/2000 if you want to play it safe.

•Exit out of the My Computer screen (though in Vista, it's just called Computer). On the start menu, open up your **Documents** window.

•Create a new folder and name in Message in a Haunted Mansion, or something you will, without a doubt, remember.

•Go back to Computer, double click on "setup" and start installing.

•Install as normal, but when you get to the part where you save the game, it's very important that you save it in the documents folder you created. Otherwise, it won't automatically create a folder for itself, and problems occur.

Here is the link to the solution I found:

I have windows 7. When i try to play Nancy Drew: Danger by design a box pops up requesting i insert disc 1. There is only one disc! It seems to work ok on windows xp. Ca you suggest anything to make it...


From the Nancy Drew web site:

Windows Vista/7 Support Installing older games (#1-13) with Windows Vista/7.
While our older games are not completely Windows Vista/7 compliant (notably games #1-13), there is a workaround which has been successful for most players. Please take the following steps to manually install.
If you had previously installed, uninstall the game and then delete all remaining game file folders from your computer, including emptying them out of your Recycle Bin. These files may be in one of the following locations:
C:\Nancy Drew\
C:\Program Files\Nancy Drew\
In your Documents folder: C:\Users\Username\Documents\
Once this is done, make sure you're logged on as an Administrator for your computer and manually install by taking the following steps:
1. Go to your "Documents" folder and create a new folder. Rename the folder with the title of the game.
2. Insert game Disk 1 in your disk drive and open "Computer" from the "Start" menu.
3. Double-click on your CD-Rom/DVD drive, look for a Setup or Setup Launcher Installshield file. Double-click this file to start the installation process.
4. When install asks what directory you want your game to install to, click "Browse".
5. Navigate to the game folder you created by selecting "C:" drive, then "Users" (or User name), then "Documents", then select the game folder.
6. Continue forward with the installation process, when asked if you want to install DirectX, check "No, I will install myself".
7. Upon completion, uncheck the "Play Now" box, click finish and exit setup.
For game titles #1-5, follow these three additional steps:
1. Right-click the game icon that is now on your desktop, select "Properties".
2. Under "Properties", click on the "Compatibility" tab.
3. Check the "Run in Compatibility Mode" box and then select "Windows 98/Me" from the drop-down menu.
You should now be able to open and play the game. If you installed an older version of DirectX with the game, please go to Microsoft's Download Center to download and install the latest version of DirectX for your version of Windows.
