Problems with trying to install games

I get a message when I try to install Office blades, Freestyle BMX etc., the Message says that I can't install games with Windows 7 I need Windows9x.


Some old games will install and run, some will not.

You can try to run the program to install game in W95 compatibility mode and then run the game itself (assuming that you can install it) in W95 compatibility mode. Who can help.

And have a read of this

It may also depend on your version of windows, i.e. with stuff really old (old 16-bit progs) of what Ive read, you are more likely to eventually succeed with 32-bit W7 with W7 64 - bit.

  • Problem with trying to install IE8 on XP/SP3 system

    I tried to install Internet Explorer 8 several times in a few months and always get this question:

    IE8 can't install because I need a software update.  I click on the 'Update Now' button and go through the automatic process, which crashes and I then gives me the option to install the update myself.  I'm going to that link and try to install update, KB932823.  It's always fails and told me that the version of the service pack of my system is newer than the update that I am trying to install.  "There is no need to install this update".  So I can not install IE8 and I can not find similar problems in areas from Member States.   I have XP SP3 installed with IE7.

  • We have a problem with a freshly installed with CC 2014 and Acrobat Pro DC - Mac whenever we click on the output preview tool, Acrobat Pro DC instantly crashes. It occurs without worrying that press ready PDF we open. Help, please!

    We have a problem with a freshly installed with CC 2014 and Acrobat Pro DC - Mac whenever we click on the output preview tool, Acrobat Pro DC instantly crashes. It occurs without worrying that press ready PDF we open. I tried to delete the folder/Library/Application Support / Adobe, but without success. the App said CC DC Pro Acrobat is installed, but the uninstall option is grayed out (I thought back to Acrobat Pro XI, but I can't do it yet). We use a local server to send updates of Adobe software, which could be the reason. Ideas accepted with gratitude as to how we can get insight into the output works again!

    Known issue for PDF files that have an output RGB mode.

    Version update of the software that will be released next month with the fix.


  • H satellite L505-13 - problem with the resolution of games

    Hello, I have a problem with the resolution of games, I just that:
    800 x 600 and 1024 x 768
    Yet, I have the latest version of the ati driver and directx 11...

    Windows Dectet my monitor properly (plug-and-play), and my screen resolution works well for: 1366 x 768 and 800 x 600.
    on the other hand, when I start a game I have only the choice between these two resolution: 800 x 600 and 1024 x 768...

    All the games don t fit the full screen and there is always a black area on the right and left.

    Some games (crash)... and I thought it made a link with said that I have only 2 resolution.

    I have a toshiba L505 - h - 13 (PSLS9E)
    my graphics card: ati mobility radeon hd 5145 graphics card
    OS: win 7 32 bit

    I hope someone can help me find a solution
    Thanks in advance


    I put t know what games you want to play, but generally speaking, it of also depending on the game you can use screen resolutions. For example if your game supports only 2 screen resolutions, you can only use these resolutions.

    So all you can do is update the driver DirectX and display. Then, look for an update (patch) for the game.

    Good luck! :)

  • Problem with a fresh install of ESXi 5.0 no boot


    I have a problem with a LS22 (IBM), when I install a new ESXi 5.0 on the server and restart this server cannot start ESXi, only show me a promt and cannot start normally.

    I tried to install it with Shift-O 'runweasel formatwithmbr' and does not work

    I had the same problem with a HX5 (IBM) and i only enter the BIOS and add the ESXi as another device to start and this is a job for me, but I can't do that with the LS22.

    Can someone help me please.


    This usually happens for two reasons.  The first reason is that your BIOS is unable to properly read a GPT partition.  The second would be if your BIOS is starting from the wrong drive.  Check your BIOS and make sure the drive that you installed ESX is one that is configured to start.

  • Satellite Pro C650D - problems with the audio and game controllers


    I recently had problems with my microphone and speakers/headphones and game controllers.
    Sometimes the microphone stops working when on Skype, for example, but most of the time works fine, once again, when I restart the pc.

    Stakeholders sometimes still work when I connect headset.
    Some of the sounds are still coming through the speakers while some coming through the headphones.

    I have a usb game controller which also did not work everything properly.
    If I assign buttons in the program that they do not work in the game.

    All these devices are in Device Manager in a group that makes me think it's sort of annoying update doubtful that messes with them.

    Any body have similar problems or know what to do better?

    See you soon


    Can you please send some details on the laptop model and the system you are using?

    With regard to the issue of sound/mic:
    > The microphone sometimes stops working when on Skype, for example, but most of the time works fine, once again, when I restart the pc.

    Are you talking about internal microphone or external? This only happens using Skype?
    In your case I would test the microphone using different applications to make sure that is not a Skype related issue.

    > Yet sometimes the speakers work when I connect headset.
    I recommend this thread:

    The user has had a similar problem, but this phenomenon was linked to the Realtek HD Audio Manager settings.
    She wrote:
    + In the upper right corner, there is a small yellow folder called "Connector settings" in my version. +
    + There, finally I could re-enable the setting "enable popup dialog box, when the unit is plugged. +

    + So now when I plug an external speaker or headphones, it appears, and I select the option "helmet" (instead of "line-in"), and then the sound only through the headphones/ext.speaker.+

    Regarding the game controller:
    > I have a usb game controller which also did not work everything properly.
    > If I attribute buttons in the program, they do not work in the game.
    I put t think its problem of laptop in my opinion, you must make sure that the controller is compatible with the games you play and also recommended to check some info provided by the manufacturer of the game controller.

  • problems with sound after installing windows 7

    My sound/audio does not work on my HP Pavilion dv2023tu notebook after a clean installation of windows XP.

    The convenience store said there is a problem with the driver, but I can't find a new driver through windows update, and HP does not either for my model. The device installed on my laptop is called high definition Audio Device. Can anyone help, if not, where can I download the drivers from. It is better to buy driver update software to help locate the right driver?


    A lot of Vista for Windows 7 drivers, so try the following.

    Download the Audio driver from the link below and save it to your desktop.


    Once the download is complete, right-click on the Setup program and select "Run as Administrator" to launch the installation.  If the driver installs successfully, restart the computer and check your audio files.

    Kind regards

    Hello x0xave.

    Looks like the graphics drivers is a little outdated.  Go to and go to their download section and see if they have the latest video drivers for your computer.

    If they do, download them and install them and see if it solves your problem. Paul Smith - MVP for Windows desktop experience... I crawled off NNTP - for now. Detachment Aldershot, United Kingdom. On the internet at and Please post back to let us know what works and what does not. :-)

    There are a few versions Adobe Flash installed a Flash Player interface in Control Panel. You can update Flash from there. If this option does not uninstall Flash completely and try again. However, there is another way to get Flash but you will need to wait for the next update try this way, or you can view someone elses computer. Here's how to install Flash without download. Most people get Flash set to update automatically. At the start of his computer Flash appears with the update and they install it. Once installed, you will find a folder for temporary files to Adobe and the flash.exe is inside the folder you can copy the .exe on a USB stick and install it on any other computer.

  • Problems with cloud creative install/uninstall for MacBook Pro

    Creative cloud to Desktop installed very well, and all the windows have worked except for the 'Apps'... all I wanted to do was download the trial of Dreamweaver CC, so it was a problem. I got the "small wheel" on the applications for a long period of verrryyy tab and tried everything on this page: App does not open. Wheel of progress turn continuously

    Those who did not help.

    I tried the solution from this page first: error "failed to install" Creative Cloud Desktop application

    Adobe Creative cloud won't uninstall... He said that I must leave everything first, which I am unable to do so because the CC icon does not appear on my Macbook more state bar... Cmd + Alt + Esc only shows the Chrome and the Finder as active, so I can't force leave them this window... I am at a loss here!

    In case this is useful: I have Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign CS6 currently installed on my computer... would this effect anything?

    Please help, I need Dreamweaver to work - I'm a web designer!

    @atul_saini I ended up dragging the entire folder creative cloud from my Applications to the trash, trash removal, and then restarting the computer. It actually worked! Creative cloud restarted (somehow) on its own, and I was able to install Dreamweaver CC with no other problems.

  • Problems when trying to install photoshop - "Installation of case-sensitive drives is not supported"? !!

    I am new to the forum and the kind of hasty looking for an answer so I'm sorry if I posted this in what you think isn't the best section.

    Basically, I use a mac at the moment and since last year my old laptop broken I'll have to borrow a mac and my knowledge of macs pritty small - enough for myself around but it's thanks a lot there.
    So I was wondering if someone could explain to me in basic terms how I can solve this problem, thank you.
    I downloaded the demo of Photoshop Cs5, but stumbled on the problem "readerscase-sensitive Installation is not supported. Please choose a different drive location to install.", I know a lot of people have met and there are solutions on the forums but I'm kind of stuck on what to do since my knowledge of Mac is not so great.
    I also have a windows on the mac operating system, but also the "Mac OS X 10.6.8"-which I have installed the trial of photoshop on. "."
    But I do not know where to go from here...
    I don't know even how to install the trial photoshop here if I need, agh.
    So if someone has the time to explain to me what to do so that I can use with happiness the trial on the mac I understand that, thanks

    Edit: So I did probably just something worse still, but since I couldn't find any uninstall program I dragged the photoshop in the trash and sure emoy trashed it. Tried to re - download but couldn't, agh! My trial runs out and I really need a quick answer please.

    Adobe on the Mac applications will simply and categorically not install on a case-sensitive to format hard drive.  Period.

    The only solution is to backup your data and reformat the hard disk from scratch with Macintosh extended (journaled) with Apple disk utility, thus wiping all information about it.

    No ifs or goals.  Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
