Game Compatability

  tristar 11:46 22 Jun 2004

I found a copy of Virtual Pool 2 that I used when I had Win95 installed.
I now run XPHome, and when I tried to install VP2 there was a warning message saying that it's not compatible with XPHome.
I'm sure there's a way to run a game in XP which simulates Win95 or whatever, but I can't remember how to do it.
Also, does it allow the loading of a game which is otherwise incompatible?

Of course, I suppose I could stop being a cheapskate and buy a later version of the game -if there is one!!

If you go to start, all programs, accessories, program compatiblity wizard.

I have a number of older programmes that will not work with XP. In XP there is a compatibility wizard, give that a try.

The way I solved the problem was by using a dual o/s.

Thank you, the compatability wizard did the trick!
