I've seen this topic around in various forms, but I figure I should post a new one. Also, this topic has to do with Gaming and Virtualization.
Recently, I've been trying to run an old game (Tom Clancy's SSN (1996)) on Windows 7 64 bit, but to no avail. 16 bit tech is a no go on the newer OS. So, I bought the Windows 7 Pro Upgrade so I could get Windows XP mode and try that to see if it worked. I was able to install the game, but when I tried to run it, I ran into some problems. First problem was the game crashing a little into the startup. I solved this by right clicking, using "Run As," and selecting the current user. This got me past the intro, but then I then ran into some graphics trouble. The game runs in the background, but their is no image. There is just a small glitchy rectangle in the top left of the screen. Also, the intro movies that do play are all greenish again due to graphics issue. Anyone have any idea on a workaround or if it's not possible to do anything? I tried running the compatibility settings too, but that didn't fix the problem.
