hi Jenny, i am confused with all these technicalities especially this 'tages' business etc. which i have never heard of. for instance, where do i find the 'game executable file' to right-click on if not in the folder itself? all i want to do is play a simple game without this technical talk. i know you are trying to help but you really are talking over my head. it has to be put in very simple terms, robert.

Tages is a copy protection that some games use. IIRC it was found to be not compatible with windows 7 so games that use it wouldn't work on that OS.

If you go to the link given by Jenny and download and install the latest Tages drivers which *are* compatible, then that might fix your problem.

if not read on...

As for the game executable - when you installed the game did it put a shortcut on your desktop? If so, then that will be linked to the game executable which will be located wherever you installed the game. Right-click this shortcut and select 'Run as Administrator'. The Start menu may also have an entry for the game - you can right-click that in the same way.

Robert,

In case it wasn't clear, you can right click on the desktop icon and select Open File Location.
That will take you right to the file where you can find the .exe.

If you're asking which version to download (32 versus 64 bit) - the link below show you how to figure it out.
