So mishra was feeling nostalagic yesterday and wanted his old Rivvie-poo and Myst Masterpiece Edition on the new family Xp.....however, when I try to install either one, it doesn't work....I've had this problem with a few games from my '98 that aren''t foward compatible....is there a patch out there for either one?

ah...mishra always finds a way...i found the riven updater but myst masterpiece is still down...

when I installed the patch on my XP, it still gives me no response when I told it to run, it does nothing....I haven't tried the Masterpiece patch, I'm trying that now...

well, the patcher says it works, but when I try to open myst, it says myst requires Windows 95, you are running NT and refuses to load!!! headbang.gif headbang.gif unsure.gif what to do??

Try right clicking the icon you are using to start Myst with and select properties. One of the tabs should say compatability, click that tab. From the drop down box there, select Windows 95 compatability after selecting that checkbox. It may not hurt to also check all the boxes in the display properties in that same tab.
