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

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.

Thanks
