The problem is that Vista's new user account control management will
not allow you to unzip files to the c:\Program Files directory as a
standard user. You need to run the setup as administrator or disable
user account control to install Jim's games under Vista.
For example, arrow to one of Jim's games and press the context menu key.
In that pull down menu you will get an option for Run as Administrator.
Press enter. UAC will ask you to confirm this action. Tell it to
continue and then the file will unzip in the c:\Program
Files\Kitchinsinc folder normally.
Now, rather than installing your games to c:\Program Files I recommend
c:\Users\Your User Name\Games
for one very important reason. Windows Vista user account control will
not allow you to save settings, save games, etc to the c:\Program Files
directory. Save games etc need to be saved in your App Data directory or
somewhere else in your local home directories. If this all sounds too
confusing and you want Windows XP functionality back do yourself a favor
and turn UAC management off.
You can do this by going to the control panel, selecting user accounts,
and going to user account control. Uncheck it, restart,the system and
problem is gone.

Hello. This is Ron. I just got a new laptop comp running vista. I
downloaded the kitchens inc folder, and can play life, but when I try
to download other games from that site, they won't exstract to the
kitchens inc folder? Another question, I downloaded tarzan jr, it
works, but runs a bit slow. Is there anyway to speed the game up?
