Hi, and thanks for using JustAnswer.com.
Unfortunately, the compatibility mode does not work for all programs/games.
This game is very old and Microsoft said that it is not compatible with windows 7:http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/Details.aspx?type=Software&p=Axis%20%26%20Allies&v=Encore&uid=&pf=3&pi=9&c=PC%20Gaming&sc=Strategy&os=64-bit
Can you try the latest Axis & Allies athttp://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=ah/aa/welcome+
Also, you can play this axis & allies (1998) game if your windows 7 version is Professional or Ultimate. Then you can download and install the Windows XP mode program athttp://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/default.aspxthen you run windows xp mode within windows 7 and install and play the game in windows xp mode
You can click on Start, then right-click on Computer, then click on Properties, then you can see your windows 7 version, such as Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, etc.
Please let me know if you have any further question. Thank you.
what a shame the xp mode option is not available on win 7 home premium
if i had known some programs would not work i would have continued using Win XP
Sorry about that. It's how Microsoft makes more money I guess
Also, all new computers come with windows 7 now, so there is not really a choice.
