I found out how to fix it and make it work on Windows 10. You need the latest patch 1.2.18 and a No CD Patch because newer Windows versions don't support securerom anymore. You need to copy and paste the Samurai.lot into your Lot folder on your harddrive. Now use Windows 95 mode and check "deactivate scarling for high DPI" and you are good to go.
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.

you can try running it in compatibility mode, when installed right click the desktop icon, then go to bottom of list to properties, then on the thumb nails, look for compatibility look in the list for what ever program it was made for ie windows xp, windows 95, then try that there are more settings there which may help...hope this helps
Once you insert the CD, go to Start -> My Computer, and Double Click on the Drive that has the Hoyle Picture. This will either start the Installer/Auto-run window, or it will open a series of files. Double click on Setup.exe if it does not autorun.
