according to the packaging, this version is supposed to work with windows 7pro, which i have. i did the install as administrator, the install went well with no reported errors.

1. whenever i dbl-click the icon or choose it from the menu, i get the error message as found in the subject line.

2. i've tried running the program as admin.

3. i've tried "compatibility mode" with the XP setting and "run as admin"

4. i noticed in another forum here concerning another issue that it was reported that "...ATI Radeon HD 2400 is known to be buggy under Hoyle products after 2009...". i have an ATI Radeon 5500 card. not sure if there is a connection there since the errors are different and my video card is newer.

5. after the "Display Problem" dialog box appears, i click on the "OK" button and get the "Hoyle Card Games.exe" error dialog with the 2 options to "check online for a solution..." and "close the program". i've tried the "check online..." but nothing is reported back to me.

This game requires a good amount of video memory due to the way it displays the graphics.

Also integrated cards may present problems as there is a ram sharing problem between the graphics card and the system memory.

What kind of computer do you have?

Hi Tmlfan, I've started to get this error after the game worked fine for months. What could cause this out of the blue? Is something in my laptop about to go kaput?

Depends on the video card your system has. What kind of computer are you running?
