How to Play "Freddi Fish" on Windows 7


Freddi Fish is an educational adventure game for children. At least five are available for the PC, with the last titled, "The Case of the Creature of Coral Cove." They were produced in the 1990s and were originally designed to work with Windows 95/98. The Freddi Fish adventures will work on Windows 7, if you make a few changes in compatibility mode.

  • Right-Click "Setup.exe," found on the game CD.

  • Click "Properties" and then the "Compatibility" tab.

  • Place a check mark in the box where it says, "Run this Program in Compatibility Mode."

  • Change the version to "Windows 98." Click "OK" to confirm. Install the game normally, then repeat the process on the game icon found on the desktop.

  • Go back to compatibility mode if Freddi Fish won't start, and change the version to "Windows XP SP2." The appropriate Windows version will depend on which Freddi Fish game you have, so try them all until you find one that works.

  • Under the "Compatibility Mode" tab, find "Settings" and place a check by "Disable Desktop Composition."

  • Place a check by "Disable Visual Themes."

  • Locate "Privilege Level" and check "Run this Program as an Administrator."

  • Click "OK" and run the game from the desktop icon.
