Hi,

 

Let me ask you a question.

 

• Which game are you trying to install on Windows 8?

 

All the games need a minimum system requirement to install. When required hardware and software are not present any particular game or software fails to install. You can check the compatibility of the game from the link here.

However you can install the games which are not compatible with Windows 8 in compatibility mode. You can follow the steps given in the link here.

 

Make older programs compatible with this version of Windows
