Windows 7: Problem running Worms 3D on Windows 7

Problem running Worms 3D on Windows 7

Hi guys,

Any ideas on running Worms 3D on Windows 7? I tried installing it, and it loads, but crashes just when it's about to load the main menu. I tried running it compatible with Windows XP SP2 and SP3 and I get the same result. Also, I tried running it as Administrator and nothing. Any other ideas?

Thanks

Try running in compatibility with 98/ME. It looks like an old game.

Do keep in mind that there are programs that simply aren't compatible with Windows 7, even in compatibility mode.

If you have Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate, you can download a virtual XP machine. It will probably run in that.

Download Windows XP Mode

I tried that once. The software tels me that my computer can't run a virtual machine, even though it's an Intel Dual Core E5200 and I'm running multiple instances of of VirtualBox. I'll try the 98 compatible mode, who knows. Thanks.

I created a thread a while back asking how to get XP Mode to work with VirtualBox. I got very good responses: Using the XP Mode in VirtualBox
