athalon 1400,288ram,23gig left from 30gig.win xp pro. i have just tried to load a game,virtual simpsons,it says that it needs 640kb on hard drive,when i try to install it says there is not enough room.can anyone help as my 11 year old is driving me mad,the game was made in the win 95 era so might not work anyway.
Ah! I'm not sure but I think you need to right click on the game icon and click on 'run in compatability mode' or something like that. If you press F1 on your desktop there might be something about it there.
To change mode right click the shortcut to you r game, left click properties left click compatability then enter which mode you want left click apply then ok. I think you will find if it says not enough memory that it will not run as i have had this problem trying to run older software with XP
I also installed a game, zoombinis as it goes, and this blighter did not like the C drive's NTFS file system that i was attemptint to install on. It installed and runs fine on the FAT 32 partition that is the d drive, if thats any help.
