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

Trying to install new game. noticed that the box says nothing about windows vista does that mean this wont work on my computer?


HI-

Yes, chances are you can't install it on a windows vista Operating system, suggesting to check website of the game and look for updates if there are any that will make it run with vista. look for a patch or update for it.

Hope this helps

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

I have a game which doesn't play on windows vista, i have acer aspire 3683wxmi laptop?


Is this some kind of problem for you? Vista is fierce serious! Perhaps it does something more disruptive than playing, though?

Lego Island


Older programs will sometimes not work with Vista. This is likely the reason that Lego Island 2 (a 2001 game) will work a opposed to Lego Island (a 1997 game). There are a few things that you can try, though:
  1. Right click the 'play game' icon and select 'Properties'
  2. Click the 'Compatibility' tab at the top of the window
  3. Click the 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' box and select Windows XP or Windows 98/Window ME (you can try another later if one doesn't work)
  4. Make sure that the 'Run this program as an administrator' box is selected.
  5. Click 'OK' and close the window
Give the icon the good ol' double click and see if she works. There's no guarantees that this will work with Vista since it is an older program, but this is where I would start.

I hope this helps!
