I found my CD for this game yesterday, was smiling as i installed it... ran the exe file.... band. nothing happens. try in compatibiltity for windows 95....bang nothing.

anyone know how to run this game in XP?

ive emailed infogrames (now atari) and they send the most usless reply EVER:

I sent this to them:

Dear sir or madam.

i recently found my copy of Infogrames game Silver. I have installed it.

Tried running it on windows XP, it crashes to desktop. I have tried using

compatability settings for windws 95..same affect. Is there any way to get

this game to work in windows XP?

also as there is NO sign of this game on your website (www.infogrames.com -

directed to atari.com) is the game to be considered abandoned by our


Yours sincerly

Daniel Paul

They replied


Have you tried the WinXP compatibility mode? To run the program in Compatibility Mode:

* Right-click the icon for the program you wish to run

* Click Properties

* Click the Compatibility tab

* Check the box next to Run this program in compatibility mode for:

* Select a version of Windows

* Click OK

Now try the program again. If you still have difficulties, try the above steps, but select a different version of Windows to test with.

If you'd like to learn more information about compatibility mode, you can click the link in the Compatibility tab that says Learn more about program compatibility.
