how do i get old games to play on vista?

I have some old games; Tachyon: the Fringe, Starlancer, that worked with xp, but don’t seem to run with vista. They’ll intall, but when I click play, they try to load and then go blank and quit.


  1. If you can download the Vista-XP Gameplay drive that will certainly work. You will have to Google it because I cannot remember the website off the top of my head.

  2. Try running them in compatibility mode =)
    Right-click a desktop shortcut, go to Properties, then the compatibility tab, check the box next to “Run this program in compat….” and pick xp (or sometimes 98, depends onthe game).
