how many of u have wanted play your PIU PC's on Windows Vista and all that you get it's the error message window?

o.k. here's a little explanation of what you have to do to play your PIU PC's on Vista:

1st step open the pump pc folder and locate pumpy.exe
2nd step Right click on pumpy.exe and click on properties
3rd step  select the compatibility with Win xp Sp 2
4th step Select all the settings .. all, less this one "run in 256 colors"
5th step Select run as an administrator
6th and last step: Voil'a!!!...play and enjoy on WIn VISTA

P.S. : This procedure only works with PIU PC's, it doesn't work for ARCADE DISCS

Thanks, we kind of figured that out a few days ago, but this is a good thread for anybody who didn't check that out.

It would be best to sticky this. This method can also work with other PIU simulators if they're having trouble running on Vista.

This should help some people.  More can be added on if necessary.

Same problem. PumpPC HAS worked before on XP. I ran as admin, compatibility set to XP +SP2, etcetc. My driver is up to date too.

It boots up normally, but it says "You driver doesn't support openGL. "

Sound plays, video is delayed and is about 6 frames a minute

I know this is dumb, but try running through command prompt and see if that works. I heard a user in one of the threads below actually tried accessing through command prompt and worked flawlessly.

I had this problem before,  i vaguely remember what i did to fix it. I believe i right clicked on the .exe and ran it under admin or something around that idea. Its been a while since i downgraded back to XP.  :P

Update your video card driver to an OpenGL driver. You have to know the brand and model of your video card, and google it. Type in the name, model, and OpenGL driver into Google, I'm sure you'll be able to find an update somewhere for it. Or just look on the video cards website, they may have a Vista OpenGL update for the video card.

Did nVIDIA Graphic Card detect, went to graphic card driver area, no available updates.

What is the Brand and Model of your video card Alan? I'll search for one for you. There's bound to be an Open GL update for your video card's driver.
