    at least some of them.

    Hi guys

    So here's the thing, i've installed some games already (using W7 Ultimate), at first i couldn't install because it was W7 64bit and it was not compatible, then i switch to W7 32bit when i try to run the .exe it shows a window (kind of like MSDOS window) with this message if i remember correctly "program too big to fit in memory"....

    And i ask...wtf?

    the games are: Race Driver Grid, Split Secont Velocity, WRC2010

    what's up with that?

    Thanks people

    Sounds like the installer wont extract... some older games have that issue with Win7/Vista

    I would suggest you extract the setup file with something like 7zip or universal extractor, then see if there is another real setup file inside that install package.

    also... have you tried right clicking the setup file and running it as admin?

    Let me know if you get it working :)

    Split Secont Velocity and WRC2010 aren't that old lol

    but later i'll try do that, i remenber that i tried to run the setup from at least 2 different .exe files but i will try running it as admin.

    I'll post back the results, thanks LiquidSpikes :)
