Thread: Will this work on Windows 8?

    Will this work on Windows 8?

    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"
