How do you install XP games on Windows Vista?

I just got a new computer, it's an HP pavilion notebook, and I have a lot of computer games older than Vista. My dad said you can install them by telling Vista they're Windows 200 or XP, but I haven't found out how yet. Help?

Hi, my name is Cody, and I’m working with the Vista Outreach Team to help people out with any questions they might have about Microsoft Vista. I noticed you had a question about whether or not you could still play some of your old XP games on your new copy of Vista.

There’s not a universal “yes or no” answer for this question; compatibility really depends on each individual game. I wanted to let you know of a really useful resource for recently upgraded Vista users that will help, though. Microsoft has set up a Windows Vista Compatibility Center at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/ which is a really handy tool that lets you see exactly what hardware and software is compatible with your copy of Windows Vista.

Just stop by the site and search for whatever particular XP game you want to install, and see if it is compatible. If it isn’t, the site should provide you with links to drivers/updates that will get you up and running! If this doesn’t work, or if the game you want to install is not in the compatibility database, your best bet is going to be checking with the game’s manufacturer to see if they have any suggestions.

I hope this helps you get gaming! Let me know if there are any other questions or concerns I can help you out with.

Thanks,

Cody
