    Did it install but just doesn't work? If not, have you tried installing it in compatibility mode? Specifically, where are you stuck in this process?

    It does install however it should have a right click option to "compile" which it doesn't, it also doesn't register scripts correctly. I have a copy of windows XP Might just install it on my old pc and run it from there but ill try installing in compatibility first

    Hi there
    my advice in using these sorts of programs is to try and run them in a virtual machine - the VIDEO support on virtual machine software is STREETS ahead of where it used to be even two years ago - the latest version of VMware player (free) plays DVD's etc quite nicely and you can probably run more old games than you think.

    Fire up a small XP Virtual machine - saves a lot of hassle in trying to make old programs work on modern OS'es - it's only a smallish learning curve to get a simple VM to install and work and it's well worth it anyway for testing future systems etc etc.

    download VMware vplayer (Free).

    Cheers

    Are you running 64 bit W8 or 32 bit?
    Have you tried shift-right click?
