Hotel Giant doesn't play on computers that have newer systems (such as XP, Windows 7 or Vista).

There are a few possibilities that can help sort the problem,

1~ Running the game in compatibility mode with Windows 98 or older

This seems the most likelihood fix. I have played this game before, then lost the disc right before the computer was updated with Windows Vista.

So, I think that the game will run in older computers because at the time it was made to run on old systems. I'm going to try this and see if it works. I'll post back ASAP.

EDIT: After running my Hotel Giant game with Windows 95/Me compatibility it loaded up onto a campaign game and then closed down as soon as I entered inside the hotel.

I then did a little google search. I found a postthat looks pretty promising, but according the Big Fish rules you can't post links. Just email me for it.

[I'm going to try and see if it works by seperating the individual words... Just delete the spaces and that's the link]

Thank you forums for the warning! Reading this was depressing, but I'm so glad I read before I bought!!

I WISH I had read this BEFORE I paid and downloaded because I too am getting message, Windows has detected an error and needs to close...

Have just found out that the game wont play on XP/Vista or Windows 7...yet before I downloaded the download information CLEARLY states it so CHEESED off right about now....

Will be ultra ultra careful before I ever spend any money on any game ever again...its the first time I have had trouble through a BF game....will always check any forums in future....

I just copied this from the developers website for Hotel Giant,

System Requirements
Operating System:
Microsoft® Windows® 98/ 2000 / ME / XP (Windows Vista and Windows 7 not supported)

I recently upgraded to a new pc with windows 7, so after re-downloading some of my favourite games, I thought I would play Hotel Giant again. Then after having the same issues, I checked the download page and it clearly says- OS: Windows 2000/XP/VISTA/7/8.
I then checked the developers site and copied and pasted the operating system requirements as above.
I've also read most of the posts on this forum noting that the exact same issue has been posted many times over the past 3 years, and still BFG don't acknowledge that the game is not supported for Vista or Windows 7. I'm really upset with BFG as a member for so many years, I think this is the last straw and I will close my membership now for the last time and buy my games elsewhere.
