Computer Game Problem

4 posts in this topic

I think I already know the answer to this but I figured I would ask in anyways incase one of the computer geniuses on the site had a fix for it.

I have an older computer game that I am trying to run on my newer computer. I have Windows XP on the new computer. When I try to install the game I get an error message:

Windows NT has been detected.

This is a Windows 95 game that will not run on Windows NT.

Is there a fix (something I could download or ?) for this or am I just out of luck?

This is where I will wear my computer ignorance on my sleeve. The error message says something about Windows NT but I thought I had Windows XP, is this a same difference issue?

Casey, XP is based on Windows NT 4.0 technology. But you could try running in windows 95/98 mode. To do that right click on the Icon (either on the desktop or in the start menu) and go to properties. Then look for a tab called compatibility, there is an option to pick windows 95/98 mode. Worth a shot. Good luck I hope it works.

Upnorth -

Thanks for the tip. I didn't quite get around to doing what you suggested but I used the Help and Support to search compatability and it brought me to a compatability wizard (who'd a thunk it) I ran that and wall-ah, it works now.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
