How do I get The Sting (2001) to run on Windows 7 64 bit?



  • So I'm having a hard time trying to run a game named The Sting (2001) on my Windows 7 64 bit laptop. I've tried running it on compatibility mode, but the game just ends up closing right after I hit "play".

    I've read that it could be because some of the DLLs required to run the game aren't available anymore on the new Windows versions. I have no idea where to find them, nor do I know how to proceed with that information.

    Any help is highly appreciated.



  • Your issue is probably stemming from the fact that windows works differently now than it did around the windows 2000/xp era. As such, resources that your game is looking for either don't exist in your current version of windows or are accessed in a completely different manor. My recommendation would be to install a free virtual machine program VM Virtualbox from oracle is a good one.

    Hope this helps
