Vista wont install games

Posted: 12-26-2008, 03:34 PM

Hi, I have a fairly new 1.6 ghz, dual core, vista. Some of my video
games install. Some old and new ones will not install.
I mean, I only get the allow, cancel window. It wont give me the option
to install, I have gone into the settings, into dos. It wont do
anything, the only action I get is the green tower light and some action
in the dvd player, thats it. Anyone know whats wrong?

Dirt tracker racer, which worked once, driver 6. I just bought
versions of splinter cell, and a few others . Its not that they won
play, they will not install. I had 98 on an old computer it installe
everything. Of course being old some games wouldnt run or were choppy
