Need help loading a xp game in windows 7

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a game in its exe file that was for xp. I tried to install it in windows 7 home. I got a window that says not supported OS. In the past I have used my old xp pc to load these them install in my windows 7 pc. That xp pc is dead and gone.

So is there a way to extract the files/program in windows 7. Or run the game other than with the xp mode that is only supported with pro, reps for any help with this.

Right click the installer and go to properties. Click on the compatibility tab. Check "Run this program in compatibility mode for " and make sure it has Windows XP SP3 on. Click apply, then OK, then run installer and report back.

Thank you. I tried it once and didn't work. Reset it and it works.
