    In Windows 8 it works fine as admin, but in Win 7 nothing works. I will reinstall in Win 7.

    Can't seem to get this to work when my laptop is connected to the TV . Guessing it must be the higher resolution. Works fine when played in the laptop though. Is there any workaround? Other games (even older ones) don't have this problem . All I get is a black screen that sort of flashes between this and the desktop, and the background music. Hmmmm. [Just noticed I made an error when registering. I'm running windows 8 😳]

    Hey @HedCase, Make a new thread instead of bringing back zombie thread from last year.

    Answer your question it is compatible with Windows 8 that it works on my laptop. I suggest you a make a new thread for people to help you.
