    The last time I had Lego Creator on Windows ME and upgraded to XP, it stopped working. I was told to wait for another version. That was a while ago.



    Whos making Lego Creator these days?

I had a customer with a similar error in vista a few weeks ago

Here's how I solved the problem.

Firstly make sure you have the lates drivers installed for you graphica card

Secondly make sure you have the latest version of direct x installed, available for free here

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&displaylang=en

Uninstall the game, install the updates above, Re-install the game.

Make sure you have a shortcut on your desktop or you know where the game installs to.

Find the shortcut for the game or the main exe file.

Right click it, then left click properties

You should have a lottle window in front of you.
Look at the tabs that run accross the top. Find the one that says compatibility.

Then go down and check the box beside Run this program in compatibility mode for:
Highlight Windows XP (Service Pack 2) click apply and then ok

Run the game and it should be ok.
If not follow the above steps but nstead of windows XP select windows 98

Hope that helps

Unable to load Roxio Creator 2009. Message says 'wizard was interrupted, your system has not been modified'. My operating system in Vista Home Premium.


During the installation of DirectX 9 portions of Creator 2009, the installation halts, it perhaps tries to roll back, gives an error....wizard was interrupted ... and cannot be completed.

Resolution
Open My Computer (or Computer for Vista users) from your Start menu.

Go to C: drive -> Windows folder -> System32 folder.

Look for a file called dsetup.dll in the System32 folder.

Rename the file to "dsetupOLD.dll" or delete the file.

Reinstall Creator 2009 and follow the on-screen instructions.

It helped some..

When i try and load creator9 i get a message that the certificate is missing


This is a precaution that Microsoft uses to help prevent any software get loaded that could possibly harm the system or not operate properly.

If you trust the software maker, go ahead and click "continue anyway" and load the software.
I am guessing that the "creator 9" software you are loading is the Roxio Easy Media Creator 9. If so, you should not have any problems just from loading it.

I have the same software and received that same window when I loaded it, but since then I have upgraded to Creator 10 not long after that and it is much better.

As time passes and you load more and more software, you will probably see that message a few times when loading software.

it does not mean that the software is bad, just that it has not been tested by microsoft and given a certificate as being compatible with the operating system.

Just don't load any software that has come from questionable places, and it would be a good idea to scan anything you plan to use with your anti-virus software first to make sure it is clean.

If you found this information helpful, a good rating is always appreciated :)

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!

after installing reboot and try again. if another dll error occurs, google it and download. It's the only way I know without proper support.
