I am using Windows 7 Professional Retail.
Hi Lodestone, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums. I hope your m-i-l enjoys using Windows 7 as much as I have. Been using it as my main OS since January.
I looked at the Bigfish website and noticed that they have discontinued support for Windows 98, so it is odd that Windows 7 responds the way you describe. The website indicates its software is Vista compatible so if you have followed their installation instructions/suggestions, the games should
work in 7 as well. What happens when you try to install a game without using compatibility mode?
I look forward to your next post!
