The rest of the game is working, but most of the minigames are not (except the rock climbing one). Any ideas?

Found a fix, I went with Quicktime 4.0 instead, no compatibility issue with installing and game's working fine now.

Jugnel, I made it as far as installing the game and opening the .iso on a virtual disc drive, but I get the "unable to create window" error when I click Play. I tried installing the Quicktime 3 but even running in compatibility mode for windows xp it gives the unsupported 16-bit application error: "The program or feature cannot start or run due to incompatibiltiy with 64-bit versions of Windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit Windows compatible version is available."

Any other solutions?

Hey guys, so if any of you are getting the "unable to create window" error, you need to install a really old version of QuickTime. For whatever reason the QuickTime installation is not provided in the ISO. QuickTime version 3 worked for me, I was able to get it from here:

I'm having an issue with this game. I've tried running it on virtualbox windows XP and several other windows versions, and am told that the window cannot be created. Nothing I can find online is helping.

I'm surprised to see this game here. I never expected to actually find it ever again. Unfortunately, I downloaded it, and unlike other classic JumpStart titles, which are robust and relatively forward-compatible, I cannot get this game to run on my machine.

I remember this little typing game as a relic of a time when extreme sports justified anything. Having the cast of JumpStart 3rd Grade in it justifies it for me. But I also remember being able to "win" without actually leaving the typing center or playing any of the typing games, because it's only the power cards that count, story-wise. I'm still impressed that a small eight-year-old girl was able to subdue a grown man and lock him in a closet.
