Older Games Not Working?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Games' started by Drizzt_Daermon, Feb 8, 2007.

  1. I have a pentium D dual core 2.8 ghz 800 fsb w/ 1 GB ram and a 256 nvidia
    7300 video card running at 1280x1024. i have the retail version of Windows
    Vista Home that comes with a dell pc. i have not patched or downloaded
    anything but when i try to play Wizardry 8 and Fable Lost Chapters they will
    not play. Wizardry pops up the developers logo for the pre loading screen and
    then shuts downj and wont load the game and fable loads and gets to the first
    fmv but when it goes to load the actual gameplay screen it will not the sound
    and controls work fine i assume i have the latest drivers for my video card
    as the pc was just made 3 days ago at most.

    Have you tried running them in Windows XP SP2 compatibility mode and or "run
    as administrator" mode?
