Hello,
What can I do to fix this!!
I am running Vista 64bit Home Premium and get the message when I try to install any games.

The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running.

Check your commputer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.

Is this a mac version of the game? Try rightclicking the DVD drive and selecting compatiblity mode WIndows 2000/XP or 98/me if that old!

This problem will happen with some old games that have 16-bit installation programs (64-bit Windows doesn't support 16-bit programs). But it shouldn't happen with modern games. Do you really mean any game? Perhaps you could list a few that you have this problem with.

RightClick on the install icon when loaded in the DVD-Rom Drive and select compatibility Mode Windows 95 or if it is Dos mode goto command prompt Start Menu button-Com in prompt-cd/ d:-Install.exe
