View Full Version : Will this work on Windows 8?

01-08-2015, 10:31 AM
I've tried everything to get this beloved game back, but I have windows 8, and CD-Roms don't work properly sometimes. Is there anyway to do it? I have the CD-ROM version, not the steam version.

It should have Compatibility Settings still.
Goto your located file
c:/program files (x86)/hasbro interactive/RollerCoaster Tycoon Deluxe/RCTD.exe
Right click it
goto compatibility Tab
Change it to XPSP3 (windows XP Service Pack 3
If it doesn't work try Windows XP SP2
If that doesn't work try Windows 2000

I'm having the same problem and I can't even find the compatibility tab either. I keep getting a msg reading "exception raised, access violation. Unknown location"
