Regarding Windows report error message

What if you don't want to get rid of error message like this weeks subject. What if you send the errors to microsoft. Do you ever get a responce from microsoft on how to fix the error, and if you do just how long do you have to wait. I'm having a compadability ( and spelling ) trouble with a game I downloaded when I had win98 that im trying to now put on my new XP and the games download says it's download is no longer available..........jewels
P.S> Arcade Horse Racing is the game

I doubt Microsoft is going to respond to an error message about a game they didn't make. I changed the error reporting setting to only report Windows errors. To find the settings, right click on my computer, properties, advance then error reporting.

Regarding game issues with XP out of the box.

In reply to: Regarding Windows report error message

If I were to install XP, do all the Windows Update steps... For every machine I've seen, today's games could error.

What's missing?

-> Latest BIOS.
-> Latest drivers for Motherboard, Video, Audio, USB, and what have you.

Microsoft doesn't do drivers... Many are just learning that the "Driver Update" button or Windows Update doesn't update your machine.

You get to handle this just like before.
