cessnac182golf -> CD Trouble (4/13/2009 8:29:31 PM)

Howdy! I purchased and loaded this game last week and it has run fine several times but now it will not run stating to insert the original CD and not a backup. I am using the CD that came with the game. Tried removing the program and re-installing it... still same error msg. Windows did update this weekend but I tried system restore and took my PC back to a time before the updates and it still says that IM not using the orig. CD HELP! Thanks! Tim

Hi cessnac182golf,

There are several versions of Monopoly, many of which were not designed to work on Vista. And, if you are using one of those versions, there may be nothing that you can do to solve your problem - because if your version of Monopoly was not designed to run on Vista, it is very likely that it is not completely compatible with Vista. And, in that case, it wouldn't take much to bring it down. So, the first thing you should do is to check the Minimum System Requirements for your version of Monopoly to see if Vista is listed there.

If Vista is listed in the Minimum System Requirements for your version of Monopoly, you might be able to solve your problem by doing this:
