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.

    •     ........if you are member of the LIVs. My 2nd graders think I am really smart at math as well. 
    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.
    • Manafort was dumped quicker than a cheap date.   #pence2018
    •   No and no, I read it closely, but down here I shoot first then ask questions.                          
    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,       

    • Come on Del like any good law we have to pass it to find out what is in it.
    • If you guys (Dave et al) are so "end the war on drugs" you ought to be able to say what that means.  How can you advocate something that you can't, or won't, define?    
    • You dont care about his statements on the 2nd amendment or his ties with radical mooslims as you put it?  
    •   I don't reside in his district and have no power to vote for or against him so I don't spend much of my free time thinking about him.
    •   But your OK with paying for people to sit in prison?   The reason you want to keep drugs criminalized is because they are dangerous, is it not?
