You will have to run the game in compatability mode, selecting windows XP. This will then run the game as if you're using windows XP.

how to select windows XP ?
Guest answered:

how do you do that????

Guest answered:

Unfortuently, you cannot load the game on Windows7. When I bought this game, I tried loading it onto my computer which has Windows 7 on it. It wasnt working and when I looked at the back of the game box it said it would only work on Windows XP. If you want to load it, I suggest you try it on maybe a laptop or a friends computer that has windows xp. Hope this helps xxx

Guest answered:

First you go to windows help and Support. Then you search for compatibility Wizard, when the results appear click on it and follow the on-screen instructions to make it such that the rogram is used with windows xp funtions

right click on the exe file, then troubleshoot, check It worked for a previous version of window, choose which one, then Test Program, the game should start. after that click next, if it worked click yes, if no, try another setting Smile
Guest answered:

What I suggest, is get windows xp virtual machine that is from microsoft and you are technically plaing on a windows xp, so see if it works on that
