You have to be really careful what you load in Win7.

Check the compatability lists and believe them. I loaded a XP game anyway and crashed the OS. Had to reinstall. All because of a DLL file that was not Win7 happy. Even in compatability mode.

Wish I could remember which one it was...

I have never had any issues with older games (well... I can't run my old Dos-win98 based games) in win7. Everything from win2K on should play fairly well under windows 7. It is much more likely that you are having a driver issue than a win7 issue.

Running VMware or Windows XP mode will allow you to run business apps but games will run like crap as you are basically running a virtual machine inside your Windows 7 machine.

Try right-clicking the game icon on your desktop and look at the Compatibility tab

What kind of game are you playing??

The game maker company don't have any patch?

Because of "Old game not running" too wide range.

I don't have any problems with running old games.

You must give us better info then just "old game"...

Please provide more info~
