Welcome Robinneedshelp to G2G :welcome:,

my Name is Gerrit and I will assist you with your problem.

Below are a few tips:


  • Read my post completely
    If you don't do so, you may make mistakes that could result in your System crashing by your own actions!
  • Please follow these instructions
    If you don't follow the instructions your computer may crash. If you fix your PC by yourself, this can be very risky!
  • Please stay in contact with me until your problem is resolved
    As a Problem may not be totally removed in one session or in one day, please stay in contact with me until the problem is resolved.

<<STEP 1: Questionstime>>

  • have you already tried to reinstall the game?
  • 64 or 32bit System?
  • Which system do you have? It would be nice if you could include info of your system in your next reply

2) when i try using compatibility (i have windows 7)it won't even work

  • The same error?

OK, bad news, I wonder. Do you have a virtual machine? Normally - newer versions Windows (Vista, Windows7, Windows 8) can't run games which are built for WinME or older. You can try it on a virtual machine but you have to install XP on that (or older versions than XP).

But we can also try one more option which maybe solve your problem.

<< STEP1: Dosbox >>

Do you have a virtual machine? (XP, or older)


Thanks!

Is there any error number or anything else? Could you post an image of the error? Or does it really only say that you can not run this game in dosbox?
