    Windows 10 Feb 2019 Update and PC game not working anymore


    Hi,


    Windows 10 Home laptop i7 16GB RAM, MSI Raider Nvidia GPU


    I am running a 20 year old game on Windows 10, its called Wargasm by Digital Image Design. It was made back in 1998 and worked perfect on Windows 10 until the latest Windows update, now the game would not launch.


    It ran in 1024x768 resolution and I would get a notice that the resolution was changing. Now I get a notice that the resolution is changing, but instead of 1024x768 its 1080p. And the game crashes and you have to reboot.


    I was on the phone with MS tech support and they wanted me to update my video drivers and do a System Restore. But I did not want to mess with that as my system is running fine. Last time I updated the video drivers Vegas Pro 16 video editing software would crash. So I had to roll back the update to an earlier version.


    Any ideas?

    :)

    Office 2019

    Only supported on Win10. Sorry, 8.1 users, only 4 years old, gotta go.

    Spoiler Office 2019
    Last year at Ignite, we announced Office 2019 – the next perpetual version of Office that includes apps (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, and Skype for Business) and servers (including Exchange, SharePoint, and Skype for Business). Today we’re pleased to share the following updates:

    • Office 2019 will ship in H2 of 2018. Previews of the new apps and servers will start shipping in the second quarter of 2018.
    • Office 2019 apps will be supported on:
      • Any supported Windows 10 SAC release
      • Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2018
      • The next LTSC release of Windows Server
    • The Office 2019 client apps will be released with Click-to-Run installation technology only. We will not provide MSI as a deployment methodology for Office 2019 clients. We will continue to provide MSI for Office Server products.

  3. My PC games are not working anymore what a disaster!!!

    Hi Pierre,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. Apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

    I would like to inform that the games which were working in previous Operating System may or may not work in Windows 10 due to compatibility issues. I suggest you to check for the latest version of the games which are not working, check compatibility with
    Windows 10 and install. If the latest version is not available or if the games are not compatible, suggest you to install the games in compatibility mode by following the steps provided below:

    • Download the setup files for the game and save it on your local disk.
    • Right click on the setup file of the game and select
      “Properties”.
    • Select “Compatibility” Tab.
    • Place a check mark next to“Run this program in Compatibility mode” and select operating system from the drop down list.
    • Let the game install and then check thefunctionality.

    Hope the information is helpful. Feel free to write to us for any other assistance with Windows, we’ll be glad to assist you.

    Microsoft Office 2019 Will Run on Windows 10, and Only Windows 10

    Windows 7 went out of mainstream support on Jan 15, 2015.
    Windows 8.1 went out of mainstream support on Jan 9, 2018.
    And I doubt anyone on Windows 8.1 would mind too much upgrading to Windows 10. I definitely would not *Big Grin Windows 10 Feb 2019 Update and PC game not working anymore :D

    They are supporting only Windowses currently in mainstream support. For Windows 10, they seem to have moved the support model to the bi-annual updates being supported for 2 years and more recently 1.5 years.

    Has it been said if Office 2019 will actually work on Windows 7/8.1? Supported and actually working can be different things. Kind of like the "on supported hardware" comment above.
