Maybe it is not supported on windows vista. Run it in a compatibility mode for XP.

Your having problem with Silent Hunter 3 on you windows Vista, It is because Silent Hunter 3 is not compatible with windows Vista. Maybe the game may work if you play it with XP compatibility. Heres how to do that.
  1. Locate the shortcut icon of Silent Hunter in your Desktop.
  2. Once you locate the icon, right click on it and click on Customize to show the Customize Menu.
  3. On the Customize Menu, Select Play and then click on Edit. ( This process will show you the Properties Screen)
  4. On the Properties Screen, you will find the Compatibility Tab, Click on it.
  5. find the sentence that says " run in compatibility mode for: ", you will see a drop-down list underneath it. It contains all the OS that can be compatible with your game.
  6. Browse the drop-down and select Windows XP.
  7. Click Apply and OK then close the Customize Menu.
  8. Now your game will try to run in XP compatiblity mode.
  9. Your done. Run the game now.
If the solution above doesn't work and you really want to play the game. I suggest you change your operating system in which the game is supported.

Goodluck , Hope that this solution will help. Please give some feedback regarding my solution thanks.

I just wanna kno if my GTA4 is gonna work smooth in full grafics with this card..


Well without knowing the card, i can tell you this.
I have a 8800gt 512mb, 4gb's ram and a 3ghz c2d e6600 and i get an average 42fps using the in game benchmark. It depends really what resolution you want to play at. I play at 1440 x 900. You would need at least a nvidia 8600gts or Ati equivalant card to play the game. Also a core 2 duo is definately needed to play this game smoothly- better yet if you have a core 2 quad. If you are using a laptop then I could almost certainly guess that it wont work. If you have a pc using intel graphics then it wont work either.

My game is loaded but when i click on the icon. it will not play?


Ok, from what I read on Microsoft, this software is NOT compatible with Windows Vista 32-bit or 64-bit. That was found directly from:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/Details.aspx?type=Software&p=School%20Tycoon&v=Take-Two%20Interactive&uid=&pf=0&pi=5&c=PC%20Gaming&sc=Strategy&os=32-bit

However, checking the company's website, it mentions that some games that normally won't run in Windows Vista, can be ran in a "compatibility mode" which mimics Windows XP. Follow these steps and see if this corrects the problem:
  1. Right-click the shortcut for the game.
  2. Click the compatibility tab.
  3. Check the box for "Run this program in compatibility mode".
  4. Select Windows XP SP2 (or Windows 98 if XP does not work) from the drop down menu.
  5. Click Apply
  6. Click OK
  7. Start the game
It should run in Windows XP SP2. If it doesn't you can try Windows 98 to be sure. If neither of these work, unfortunately, you may be unable to play this game.

I own the game Ultimate Mahjongg my computer i windows vista and I cant play my game that is my favorite I do not know too much about computers Im a senior and I love to play mygames can you help me ?...


Mahjong is probably an XP game. Right click on the game icon. the click on properties. when the window opens, you will see the tab labeled "Compatability". Click on that tab, then check mark the box that says "Run this in compatibility mode", then in the drop down box select Win XP. Click apply then OK.
Then play the game, it should work fine.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
