    Win 8 Can't Open Around the World in 80 Days game

    My new HP Probook 4540s installed with Win 8 Pro 64bit cannot open Around the World in 80 Days, Amazing Pyramid and Fishdom. When I double click the shortcut it attempts to open for just a fraction of a second and close. Please help.

    Right click the shortcut of either game and select "Open File Location" and then right click on the file that would launch the game and select properties. Next, click on the "Compatibility" tab and check the box "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and in the dropbox select Windows 7 and apply the change. Then try to launch the game and if it does not work go back into the properties and select compatibility tab again and instead of windows 7, click the dropbox and select Windows XP. Hope it works for you
