    I have the same problem with The Sims 3. The Alienware ppl made it so it would think it was running on vista, but i really wish for more of a fix because I'm having the same issue with other games. :/ If you figure out what to do lemme know.

    Ok, I had trouble with "for example" Sony Vegas 9.0 Premium and I right clicked the desktop icon for it and click on trouble shoot than it set it to work as if it was on xp. It's working now. I don't want to have to do that with EVERY program, but atleast it works. :D YAY!Mine craft i can't get to work cuz i play it on browser sometimes, but I did download it but it doesn't show up I have to keep downloading it. Anyway.. I'll stay tuned to see what anyone has to say. :D
