I have windows 7 and I can't get the gave to load. It worked well with my Vista but not with windows 7. Does any one have a fix ?

I have been searching the forums for a fix too. From everything I have read, there is no fix at this time. It's frustrating because these are two of my favorite games!

Having the same problem. I have Windows 7, 64 bit. I installed the demo tonight and tried to run it and got some pop up message saying my system must be at least Windows 98. That made me laugh. Out loud. LOL

The game is only set to run on Windows 98 or Vista, it won't play in Windows 7. I got a refund for mine after I got a new computer.

I wish one of you guys at fish would take this game in hand and update to work in windows 7. It is one of my fav games of all time, and I see you've put it on facebook but not fixed it for your followers.
Please fix this game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh Carp!! I guess I'd better nurse my Windows Vista computer along. I LOVE those two games. Please BFG fix them!

I fixed this game and Lucky Junction today, all by myself. Thought I would share what I did here.

Right-click on the exe for the game. Choose 'Troubleshoot compatibility' then let the wizard to it's thing. Run the game to make sure it works before saving the setting and closing the wizard. Note that going to the compatibility tab under properties and setting it there won't work, but may be needed for the wizard to work.
Anyway it worked great for me, hopefully it will work for others too

I wish I would have searched the forums before buying this game! This is completely and utterly frustrating that it will not work on Windows 7...contacted support, hopefully they can get it settled or at least refund my money. I got addicted to this game on facebook, but refuse to spend all the facebook cash in order to play it more than 10 minutes (because you have to either wait several hours or spend cash to get energy to visit neighbors - hoping that is not the case in the purchased version!)

How do I find the exe for the game? I'm looking in all the files. Please post step by step instructions for Windows 7. Thanks!

Having the same problem. I've owned the game for years, but had deleted it. Decided to play again and reinstalled. Now I'm getting the same popup message as others.

Wouldn't work for me either.

Tried every version of XP, Vista, and 98

Sad sad, I've owned it a very very long time.
