View Full Version : Win 7 and Older Programs

02-05-2010, 02:56 PM
I've just installed Win 7 64 bit on my PC, fresh install from Xp Pro. Looks good and runs well. I can't install some of my games. Battlefield 1942 is OK but IL 2 Sturmovik and Psychonauts will not install. IL 2 does nothing but just boosts the CPU up to 100% and Psychonauts gets as far as the install wizard then hangs. I've tried setting the program to Xp SP3 but it maks no difference.

right click run in compatibility mode?

Else install via XP Mode?

I have done all the above suggestions. Still no luck. It seems as soon as the installer app starts the PC hangs.

According to the MS site you have to pay to update it (Sturmovik). So, it'll be compatible with Win7. Send them an email (http://www.ubi.com/us/support/). And send an email to the other site (http://www.psychonauts.com/)

What a ripoff, have to pay just so you can play a game on Windows 7.

This is why I still run XP, so many games just don't work on Vista or 7
