    Hello All,


    I am trying to get an old EA game to run on my Windows 10 system, it's Battelfield: Vietnam. The game goes to launch, the screen goes dark then right back to my desktop screen. I have the older Battlefield 1942 installed and it runs fine ??? Any suggestions on how to get BF:V to run correctly would be greatly appreciated.


    Thank you all

    :)

  2. ASHA 310 EA Games

    I started downloading the 40 free EA games and got to game 11. Now when I click on the EA games gift link it says "No Content Available" and I still had a long time remaining.

    Does anyone know what is wrong and how to get the games list back?



    Thanks.

  3. Will Windows 10 be able to play older games/programs?

    Hi,

    I suggest you to install the games in compatibility mode and check if it works.

    2. Select Compatibility tab.

    3. Check Run this program in Compatibility mode.

    Incompatible: EA Game

    Hi,

    From the information provided, it looks like the issue could be due to the program being old which is why it is not being supported in Windows 10.

    I would however suggest you to try installing the game in compatibility mode by following the steps below and check again:

    1. Right-click on the setup file of the game and select "Properties".

    2. Select "Compatibility" Tab.

    3. Place a check mark next to "Run this program in Compatibility mode" and select Windows 8
    from the drop down list.

    4. Let the game install and then check the functionality.

    Let us know the result.
