  • Installing STFD on Windows 7

    Hoo boy, I know, crazy me and my old games.

    I'm trying to install STFD on Windows 7 from a disc but whenever I click to run the setup it just pops up with a box asking if it can make changes to the computer, I click yes, and nothing else happens. I know how to take care of later problems with installation but not this. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I recall that something similar happened to me. I would try opening up Windows Task Manager, clicking on the Processes tab, and ending the setup process; that is, if it's there. (Be careful not to kill anything else, of course. )
    Then try restarting the installation.

    I hope that helps! (STFD is one of my favorite games btw. )

        I would try closing down most of your open programs. That might help.

        And, I guess you could always do the tried and true "reboot".

          Thanks Krol, I was able to figure it out! I had to run it in compatibility mode for Windows 2000 and that sorted it out :) Much appreciated!
