Can anyone PLEASE help me here?? :upset: I got Lego Creator at a thrift store, but it just refuses to be played on Vista! I got it installed. If you have a patch, can you make sure I don't have to sign up for a membership fee or something like that? Thanks.

Windows XP/Vista compatibility

Older versions of Lego Creator CDs do not work in Windows XP unmodified. When installed from an original game disc, overwritten with a third party patch and run in Windows 98/Me compatibility mode, the game will play on some Windows XP computers. Lego has released a newer edition which is XP compatible and has also released a patch to allow it to run on Windows-NT based operating systems, such as Windows 2000, XP or Vista. Lego creator is compatible with Windows Vista Home Basic and Windows Vista Business.
Try running it using 95/98 compatiblity mode. If it needs a patch, go to the official Lego download site.

If you've still got your old Windows 98 CD, you could set up a dual boot which allows you to choose whether to boot into Windows 98 or Vista when you turn the computer on.

You would need to create a new FAT32 partition for Windows ME on your hard drive, or use a second hard drive. See here for details - How to Dual-Boot Vista & 98 | eHow.com

Alternatively, if you've got enough RAM, you could use a Virtual Machine like the freeware VirtualBox. This lets you run Windows ME from inside Vista. It's like having another operating system running inside a window (can also be run fullscreen). After it's installed and setup, you can hit a key to toggle between Vista and ME without having to reboot every time.
