How can I install Chessmaster 9000 on Windows 7?

September 17, 2015 at 06:22:27
Specs: Windows 7
ChessMaster 9000 ran successfully on Windows 7, 64 bit machine. Recently it stopped loading. Kept showing ...FATAL... error message. Uninstalled. Now it will not re-install. (Running compatability with Windows XP, Service Pack 3). Clicking AutoPlay.exe or Autorun.exe brings up screen with INSTALL and QUIT buttons. Clicking INSTALL does not install the program. Checks show each .exe file to be incompatable. Setup.exe does nothing. Tried other Operating systems for compatability; same results. Tried installing as Administrator; same results. Can someone PLEASE HELP ME?!!

Are you trying to install a Demo version or Paid version?

Install a cleaning program such as CCleaner-Slim - run both the cleaner & registry scanner & remove everything they find, then reboot. Before attempting to reinstall the program, right click on the installer .EXE, select Properties > Compatibility tab, check the box for "run this in compatibility mode for XP SP3", & click Apply. Then right click on the installer .EXE again & this time select "Run as Administrator"

Hi beachyhbt,
A paid version. I've had it for a few years now.

Hi riider,
I'm not very computer literate, so will have to digest your suggestion, try it and let you know result.

Hi again Riider,
I have followed you instructions to the letter (twice). Program still does not install; even trying Windows 98/ME, the OS for which it was written. The program has three .exe files; Setup, Autostart and Autorun. Windows Compatibility Troubleshooter reveals "Incompatible Application Detected" for each .exe file. Where do I go from here?
