Re: windows vista upgrade vs home preuim vs home basic
I don't play much games, but you may want to try one of these 1) right click
the install program (if applicable), and chose "run as administrator", or 2)
do same right click on game icon, choose properties, and click on
"compatibility" tab. Choose your desired OS (one where you know it ran
previously), and click on the radio button associated with the "old" OS.
Click OK or apply a few times, and re-start.
