Game Maker Vista Fix By: Mark Overmars
Game EXE files created with Game Maker 6 do not run under Windows Vista. If you use Vista, use this tool to convert the games to run under your shiny new transparency-drunk OS. This isn't needed for Game Maker 7 games.

Read the Readme.txt file for more information.

Good show.

I don't have Vista, but this should be really useful for many people. Hopefully they'll think to look for it in this section.

Games made with GM6 DO work with Windows 2000. I know cuz I have Windows 2000. If it doesn't work, then your computer must be on crack or something...

I've already seen this on 1,000,000 other sites, so it's not as exciting here.

I can't change my GMK files into exes, although I know that it says only 6.0 and 6.1 versions, I have version 7.0. Can't you make it have 7.0 too?

Only problem is when I use this, my computer gets incredibly slow.

Wish I didn't have a Vista in the first place...

Is there a problem with a file named run61? Norton keeps removing it, therefore making it so I cannot convert my games.

Something is. The program says it 'cannot access C:Users\....blah blah blah\GM_Convert_Game/run61.

Try uninstalling Norton. This is one of the most annoying antivirus programs I ever seen.

But the problem is, it looks like run61 was a virus or spyware or malware, it might not unleash damage to the computer as I know it.

This never works. Tried 2 games with it. Gives me "Unexpected error occured when running the game.".

Hm, does this work with Windows 7? I might have to try this out with some Game Maker 6 games someday.
