I had the same problem when I tried to play Rollercoaster Tycoon on Vista. It just wouldn't work, at first.

Basically, providing you can still install it? which I guess you can? You will need to do the following...

  1. Right click on the desktop icon and select properties.
  2. Now click on the compability bar
  3. You will see a Compability mode area
  4. Select the "Run this program in compability mode for:" box
  5. Select the box beneath it and select the operating system it was intended to run on e.g. Win 95, 98/ME,
  6. If it reguires any special settings like 640x480 mode or 256 colours only, remember to have those selected
  7. Click 'Apply' then 'OK'
Run the program, hope it works for you! :thumbsup:
