Hi Guys

No! sorry no-one has replied with any ideas for a solution as yet! If
anyone out there can help us PLEASE, PLEASE, get in touch, we would love to
hear from you.

Why? Why? do companies release these programs - charge us - then expect the
customers to sort the problems out for them. Good job if you can get it I
say! I am beginning to hate Vista & wish I'd never bothered nothing seems to
want to work with it & although I'm not really a techi person, I can't see
what is any better than it was on XP.

If anyone does come up with anything I will post it immediately for you.

Backup your data, restore Vista from your manufacturers restore DVDs, run
all windows updates and get latest drivers, reinstall games, pray, start
games.

The game launcher is just the game thing that starts games, what happens
when you just startup the game from it's start menu icon? I mean the game
launcher isn't part of the game per say.

Best of luck. If you're still having problems, which games (just list 1 or
2) that you're having problems with, what have you tried so far to fix the
problem, what is the make and model of your computer, if it's a custom
computer what components are you using?

Gotta help us before we can help you. You might try contacting the game
makers if you're really at a loss for ideas, lots have great tech support
people on staff.

Shockwave is a web protocol like Flash, is there a particular game that
you're having problems with? Don't just say some work, some don't. Tell us
which games work, and which ones do not. List like 5 from each list,
include links and we can try them out.

More than likely the games you are playing haven't been tested on Vista.
Check the website where you got the game, if the requirements only say
Windows XP support, then you'll have to tweak them to get them to work, if
they work at all.

Who you should be bugging is whoever made the game. for assistance (if any
is available).
