Welcome to Fixya. The problem that you have occurs because the program or application that you are trying to install is not compatible with windows vista. The game was released before the release of windows vista or even xp that's why it is not working. You can check the maker of the game and see if they release the patch for the windows vista version if not then there's no way you can play it on your system.
What type of 3D games are you looking for. you can try to check the system information you have by going to system information,
click on start then right-click on my computer then properties. then you can check online for any 3D games that is compatible with your computer
Okay, i play Civ IV on my system and i run Vista as well. Your best bet is the tweak with the compatibility. Find the install folder and look for the .exe that launches the game (civ.exe i think, don't hold me to that though). Right click on it and click on properties, then the compatibility tab. Try dropping the compatibility to win xp and see if that helps. If it doesn't, post your system specs and we'll work from there
You can find information on how to make it work at http://ubisoft.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/ubisoft.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=11729. Although the manufacturer doesn't guarantee this will work it looks like several people on the web claims it does. The steps to implement compatibility mode for Vista are: Once the game has been installed:
1. Find the game icon listed in your games directory.
2. Right click on the game and click on Customize. This will bring up the customize menu.
3. Select Play.
4. Select Edit.
5. This will bring up the Properties screen. Click the Compatibility tab.
6. Check 'run in compatibility mode' and then choose Windows XP or whatever operating system the game was designed for.
7. Press Apply then press OK. You will be back at the customize menu.
8. Close the customize screen.
The game should now be configured to run in Compatibility mode.
