I downloaded both Stranded and Stranded II, and the applications wont run. When I run them, it creates a application tab on the start bar. When I click the tab, it shows a black screen for a moment and then go back into tab mode. Help!

hi,
You can try a few things listed below...let us know which one solves the problem, if any. Please...I have Windows 8 and it runs fine on my system.

• Try right-click the launch icon and Run As The Administrator

or

• Try right-click the launch icon and Set Compatibility Mode to another system like Vista or XP

or

• Try updating your drivers for your video card through the Control Panel on your computer...or your card's website...or Windows Update.

or

• Go to the main S2 website and download the patches for Windows Vista & Windows 7...they may work for 8 if all else failed.

or

• Your system may be corrupted and you need to run Restore, or do the Factory Reset...or a full service maintenance if you know how to use programs such as Glary Utilities and HitmanPro. (both free versions-google them)

> post if you find a fix please, for others who may search your thread.

I got it working! Thank you. I did some poking around and finally discovered that what made it work was checking "Run in 640 x 480 screen resolution." That's under the compatibility tab in properties.
