Re: Strange trouble, need help with a couple of classic games

Hi Brian,

When I first got the laptop, it was upgraded to windows 10 from 7.  The
games went on it without a hitch. My thinking is that it was repaired in
the same manner. But I have since found out that you never can tell
because when it came back this time it was set for English UK, instead
of English U.S. and this may be the second quirk along the way to
getting this thing fully back up to speed. Let me get myself some coffee
and set it back up, and send you more info once I've got it mate.

It might well be that during updates paths have been preserved but
when a new install is done the path used by the installer is no longer
valid or able to be created. Is the new protected folder checkbox on
though I'd expect if it was then installation would fail.
As for resources. What have they done with the virtual memory setting?

Subject: [nvda] Strange trouble, need help with a couple of classic games

Howdy gang,

How many classic gamers are in the house? Perhaps somebody can help me
with this one. Here's what's happening.

I'm happy that the classic games like ESP Pinball Ten Pin alley, and
Silver Dollar run on windows 10 with NVDA without a hitch. Just the
other day I got my laptop back from the shop It had to be brought back
to the land of the living from a complete operating system crash. So
far, everything's gravy except for 2 things. I've installed both Ten
Pin alley, and silver and get the following errors.

For ten pin alley I get error code 76 Path not found.

For silver dollar I get error 1450, there are not enough system
resources to execute the command. Don't know how that's possible, the
laptop was running both of these programs just fine before the system

I'm running windows 10 64 bit version 1709, and the latest version of
NVDA. Any help would be appreciated.
