    I have a Survivor Interactive PC game bought in 2001. I just bought a new
    Dell notebook and am getting an error message "config.tx" and the program
    ends. Any ideas? Also what is going to happen when I play the Sims games?

  2. Try this..

    Uninstall game...
    Install to C:\Programs\Game Name (Not C:\Program Files\Game Name)

    This has made many old programs work for me.

    Good Luck

  3. You can also try running the game in Compatibility mode to see if it will
    work. Just right click the Game executable > click Properties >
    Compatibility (tab) > Check the 'Run this program in compatibility mode
    for:" for box and select an appropriate version of Windows the game is know
    to run on.
