Scrabble Complete not compatible with Vista SP1 - 5/21/2008 9:25:07 PM

I am running windows VISTA. The game installs fine, I start it up and it lets me make a game with a computer player. Then as soon as I place a word on the board and hit play the games closes. I am back on my desktop with the error "Scrabble Complete has stoped working". If I skip my turn and let the computer go first the computer will play a word with no problem. Then once I try and play one the game "stops working"

Any ideas? I already tried XP and Win98/ME compatiblity modes with no luck. I also tyred another vista computer to see if it was my set up and it has the same issue. The game worked fine when I had an XP machine, and this forum said it should work with vista.


Thanks in advance for any help

Hi invasionbond,

When the "this program has stopped working" error message occurs, the first best thing to do is to update your graphics card drivers, as described in this FAQ

Updating Video Card Driver: 2000/XP/Vista/7/Mac OS X 10.4.0 and later

yeah I defiantly have the most updated video drivers. Im running a:
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT
Manufacturer: NVIDIA
Chip type: GeForce 8600 GT
Dedicated Memory: 239 MB

the other computer I tried it on was an integrated intel video card. Both still have the error after updating.

I sent and email to the Encore support and they said they game will not work with vista...it that true? I looks like some people got it to work. why is it like this on both of my vista machines?

Brandy , I have some bad news on this outcome. After installing Service Pack 1 on Vista, Scrabble stopped working. I dont know why, but it just stopped.
