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.

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. hubbardt a b $ Windows 7 April 13, 2012 3:04:47 PM 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 andywork78 April 13, 2012 3:13:32 PM 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"...
