Glitch In Solitaire (Vista) by Torra
Sorry if this is in the wrong place or has alraedy been addressed, I looked for it, but after an hour of searching the site and the forums, it eaither hasn't been asked, or I've overlooked it. My copy of Solitaire seems to have a glitch, about 70% of the time, it dosn't reconise when the game is lost and ask if I'd like to end it, like it's suposed to. And the "hint" comand just has me...

A couple problems I'm having with default Vista games by Clarence
I've added the Games option to display as a menu for my start menu and everything worked great for a while. Now though, whenever I attempt to open a game, say Spider Solitaire or any other Vista default game, it never opens. The interesting thing is that the games open fine in Game Explorer. The game links also work if I open them through the Games folder in the All Programs menu. Is there a...

First Post by Ken[_2_]
Hi all, I am 43 and live in Wisconsin USA I have been hooked on PC shooters since Wolfenstein in the old 3.1 / 386 days. So far I have not ran into any major problems while running Vista with the games I play. I have been patiently waiting for Bioshock to arrive from Amazon. In the mean time I have been scaring the hell out of myself playing FEAR. I just started playing, so I don't know...

Company of Heroes - Patches? by Maureen[_2_]
Just wondering how the patches for COH work. There is a whole list of them (6 or 7). I've just installed the first on the list, which seemed to go okay. Do I just go through and install them all? Also, when playing the game it sometimes flips me back to my desktop. Should I be turning off all of the Windows Services when I play, and how do I do that? I turn off Windows Defender and...

Missing icons in my vista games folder by Orcabear

I click on games in my vista start menu, it brings up all the games on my system and now I"m missing some of the icons. for example my supreme commander game now has a generic icon than the specific icon for the game. I've tried going into the edit menu and changing it back but it...

Vista regular solitaire is bad!! by Sarah
After months of struggling with driver problems between Vista and Nvidia, my husband and I dumped Nvidia and got something else. We have spent hundreds of dollars in upgrades, e.g. LOTS of RAM. The only way Vista actually works properly, without having to "borrow" from other programs is to buy more RAM. Now, my current complaint is the new regular solitaire in Vista sucks! I thought it might...

filepath/permissions issue? by Tom
I'm trying to view some easter eggs in a game I own, which requires me to modify the .ini file for it. I did this in XP with no trouble, but Vista keeps telling me it can't create the filepath to save the modified file or that I don't have permission to modify this file. I've already adjusted the properties and "allowed" everything. Any other ideas?

loading old game by Phatpat
I am trying to load an old game (Warcraft II Tides of Darkness) on Windows Vista, but I keep getting an error message saying the system is not compatible with full screen mode. I have tried the compatability program, turning the color to 256 and lowering screen resolution with no results. The start-up menu comes up fine for the game and I can even enter the map editor, but it will not let...

The clouds are following me! by tankertoad
Before you write this off as plain paranoia, I've been flying FSX enough for this to be true. The SP1 for FSX did improve cloud coverage a bit, fixing the cloud bases when ceilings are reported by Jeppesen. However, when they are not reported, but just as general cloud cover (scattered, light, broken), it seems that there is a bias to put the base of the clouds either right at my altitude...

Vista Business - can't add games by [email protected]
I've got a Sony Vaio with Vista Business installed. By default games are not installed and they are added by "Turn Windows features On/Off" in Control Panel. However when I run this and try to add anything nothing happens- the status bar never moves and then both screens disappear. I can't add any windows features - and this seems to be a common problem I've made rescue disks as Sony's don't...

Civ IV with Vista? by Jack B
I just loaded my old copy of Civ IV on my newer Vista machine, and it isn't working. Vista tells me there are compatibility porblems and I should contact Firaxis. I see in this forum that Civ IV is on the list of games that work in Vista. I tried loading patch 1.61, but that doesn't seem to work either. Does anyone know what I need to do? Thanks,
