It says it cant start or run do to incompatibility with 64 bit versions of windows....any way i can make my mission think game work? :/
The Learning Company Super Solver Mission T.H.I.N.K. was released in 1999 for Windows 3 and probably Windows 95/98. It could run under XP in the compatibility mode.
For a newer Windows OS, you need a workaround. You can use a a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software in the virtual computer using the compatibility mode and it should work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. If your computer has a USB keyboard and mouse, you will need to use Win98 or newer OS. (However, the drivers may be an issue with Win98.)
For the compatibility mode, right click on the installer and choose Properties. In the compatibility tab, check the box for Run as compatible with an older version of Windows. Then launch the program.
I hope this helps.
(Windows 95b supported USB but it wasn't really ready for the USB)
