XP Problem with old games

  jamesbond_007838 17:58 19 Mar 2003

I am running a Pentium 4 2ghz with 512 megs of ram and Windows XP Home Ed. I am trying to play games like Half-Life, Theme Park Inc, Tiger Woods 2000, Grand Theft Auto London and other quite old games. When i install them and try to play, i either get an error message or the game looks as though it will run and then just returns to the desktop with no error or anything. Is this an unsolvable problem with Windows XP? Any help will be much appreciated.

Go to the website of each game and see if there is a patch to play on XP.

Right click the games icon and go to properties and select compatibilty...Choose 98.
