    Default Pinball Space Cadet game and Windows 7

    While this game was discontinued after XP, I discovered how to add it to Windows 7, mainly to satisfy a friend unwilling to give his old XP laptop up because of his addiction to pinball (he does everything else on a new Windows 7 machine).

    I got it working OK on my own machine, including the full screen (F4) option. However, while it works in default resolution on his new machine, when the full screen option is selected, the screen goes black, flashes an image of the pinball game and then returns to the small, default resolution.

    Is this due a setting on his machine? Anybody got any suggestions? If I can get him off his XP machine, it'll go to a very deserving person.

    Have you tried to run it in Compatibility mode? Right-click on the program
    icon, select properties, then the compatibility tab. Select the OS that the
    program was originally written for, or the one it runs best in.

    you can try in this method.

    There is another post from earlier this year regarding Pinball. As Kunu stated, run it in compatibility mode and it should play fine. I use Windows 7 and play the old Pinball game quite often and this remedied it.
