I bought a windows 95 game the other day, thinking i'd have no problems playing it on my WinXp computer, but i can't get the thing to work. I've changed the compatability thingy to Win95, and it installs and i get all the game menu, but as soon as i ask it to go into the actual game i get that awful WinXP tone telling me i cant and the screen just goes blank. Please help me as i feel this game and the computer are ganging up on me!
When you buy a game or program check to see what it is compatable with. Lots of things do not work on XP even in compatability mode. I would very much doubt if it will work on your system now, I have loads of programs that are sat doing nothing but that is the price you pay for upgrading.
