it may be an idea to visit the website that supports the game,

you may find an FAQ, or find some info on how to run in each OS,

tell us the game, someone here may be using it, and can advise.

I'm not aware of any games that wont run on XP.
As crx1600 says, the name of the game would help. Try running through this check list click here

Try this.

Right click the icon for the game.

Select Properties.

On the Compatibility Tab, Check the Run This Program In Compatibility box, and select Windows 98.
