Any chance of a few more details as I for one have not got a clue what you are on about.

Right click the .exe file, select properties then compatability tab and select which OS you want to run the programme with.

will try that

tried compat.for XP .Says something about not having "direct draw"

Upon further research I have found that W7 Does not support "Direct Draw" Making it incompatible with many games that require it.
Anyone have a fix? I don't want to throw out my old games.
