I bought a CD copy of RISK quite a few years back and it worked just fine on Windows XP. When I upgraded to a Windows 8.1 machine, it still worked fine for about a year. Now on login it tells me I must upgrade to a system newer than Windows XP. I've deleted my original installation from the computer and attempted to reinstall and get the same upgrade message. I love the game and need some Help! Yes, I have checked my computer to confirm I am indeed running 8.1.

Did you have Windows 8 installed perhaps before upgrading to Windows 8.1? Because Windows 8.1 breaks a lot of our software that are older.

Was it an old CD that was made around 1997 ? Or was it a box copy that looks like this : http://www.amazon.com/Encore-Software-14260-Risk-Version/dp/B000SQN0KI/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1405435314&sr=8-4&keywords=Risk+pc+game

Either way these programs are very outdated and we don't support these products anymore. Another company has the rights to Risk and is selling an updated version of it that may or may not work on Windows 8.

I would do a Google Search for making older programs run on Windows 8.1
