If your cricket 07 is not working in Windows 10, then you don’t need to search for how to run cricket 07 in windows 10. As mentioned earlier, I’ve covered almost everything in this post.
Just by following the below mentioned two simple methods or rather say “settings“, you can make cricket 07 work in Windows 10.
Step 1: Open the Cricket 07 by InsideCricSport folder and look for cricket07.exe file (the one from which you run the game). Now, right-click on it and select the last option i.e. properties. (Refer image below ↓)
Step 2: The properties setting of the .exe will open. By default, you’ll be on the General Tab. So, first thing to do is switch to the Compatibility Tab then in the compatibility mode, you will see a small checkbox on the left of “Run this program in compatibility mode for”.
Here, you simply need to check the box.
Step 3: After you check that box, you’ll be able to select the compatibility mode. From the dropdown, select Windows XP (Service Pack 3) or Windows 7.
Note: Both of the options works fine but I recommend using Windows XP (Sp3), as it makes cricket 07 run smoothly in Windows 10. (Refer image below ↓)
Step 4: Click on Apply & then click on OK to save these new settings.
Now, run the cricket07.exe application and see if it works.
Most of the times, the game starts working after applying this compatibility setting. If it does, great & if it doesn’t then worry not. We have another method. So, continue reading…
*Note: This method is for two types of users. One is for users with Graphics card and other is for Users without Graphics card. Follow the one that suits…
In this method, you have to change your resolution to “640×480”.
If your system has graphics, then you’ll get some options related to the graphics driver when you simply right-click on the desktop.
Step 1: Right-click and select the graphics option, after that select Display option, and then on the left panel or right panel you’ll see an option to set ‘Custom resolution‘.
Step 2: Head over to custom resolution tab and then Set width as 640 and height as 480, also for refresh rate put the value 60 & then on the bottom right you’ll see a + sign, click on that and select add.
Step 3: Go to the game folder & run the game via cricket07.exe and see the changes.
*Note – This is for users who have a graphics card, to check whether you have or not, simply right-click on the desktop and if you see any Intel, NVIDIA, etc option that means you have that graphics installed and you can set a custom resolution by following the above method.
For those who don’t see any graphics option then here’s what you can do…
If your system doesn’t have graphics, then no worries, you can still apply this resolution method.
Step 1: Open the compatibility Settings by following Step 1 & 2 shown in Method 1, then under the compatibility mode, you’ll see some additional settings option.
Step 2: Here, look for this setting – “Run in 640 x 480 screen resolution”.
By default, it will be unchecked. So, hover your mouse and check the option Run in 640 x 480 screen resolution.
Step 3: Next, click on apply & then click on OK to apply these new settings.
Step 4: Go to the game folder & run the game via cricket07.exe and see if it works.
