I have some of my favourite games on the pc mainly civilization 3 and some of the command and conquer titles. They worked on windows xp, vista, and 2007 I think it was. However they're completely unplayable on either windows 7 or 8, I could have upgraded to 10 but wasn't interested in the design. I've looked up patches online which has said made windows 8.1 (what I have), to use the older systems of windows but has seemed to do fuck all. Any help will be appreciated.

Was the windows vista they worked on 32bit or 64bit? cause some older games don't work right on 64bit operating systems. Also have you tried running the games in compatibility mode? Another thing to watch out for is SafeDisc and Securom DRM games no longer work in windows 8/8.1 and 10 and also windows 7 after a certain update. I had a problem with Simcity 4, it refused to run on windows 8.1 plus windows 10 when I upgraded to it (was due to windows blocking Securom). Windows now prevents SafeDisc and Securom from running which cause the game to not work cause it can't authenticate the game disc. SafeDisc and Securerom was copy protection used on older games to prevent them from being copied.1
