  1. Game Compatibility


    Whenever i try to download a game from the microsoft store on my HP 255 G5 Notebook, ie. Asphalt 8, it says my device is not compatible. But it says that on just about every game. Am i missing an update or is my laptop just unable to handle a couple games?

  2. Windows 10 Game Compatibility

    Hello Debie,

    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10!

    There are some programs that need new definitions compatible with Windows 10. Till the time they are unavailable you can install the programs compatible with previous versions of operating system in compatibility mode. If you can access the executable (.exe)
    file for the game, I would suggest you to follow the below provided steps:

    Step 1: Download and save the game on the desktop.

    Step 2: Install the game in compatibility mode.

    • Right click on the .exe file, and click on Properties.
    • Go to the Compatibility tab.
    • Check the box for Run this program in compatibility mode for:
    • Select Windows 8 (or any other compatible OS) in the list of Operating systems.
    • Click OK.
    • Double-click the executable file to install the game and follow the onscreen instructions.
    • Reboot your computer.
    Additional information:

    Make older programs compatible with this version of Windows

    Hope this information is helpful. Do let us know if you need any further assistance, we'll be glad to assist you.

    unable to play backwars compatible game on windows 10

    Hi CloakingRope170,

    Some apps created earlier than Windows 10 might not run optimally or will not run at all due to possible compatibility issues. As a first troubleshooting step, i suggest running the Program Compatibility Troubleshooter and see if it helps. Here are the steps:

    1. Enter the name of the game on the Windows search box.
    2. Right click on the result and select Open file location.
    3. Right click on the game and select Properties.
    4. Under the Compatibility tab, click Run compatibility troubleshooter.
    5. Follow the troubleshooter wizard and complete the process.

    If you continue to experience the issue after the compatibility troubleshooter, try the suggested
    compatibility settings based on this link. Just adjust one or more of the following
    settings and select OK when you’re done.

    Please respond to this thread to let me know how the issue progresses. Similarly, if you have more questions, please inform me by replying to this post.
