Starcraft doesnt start

Starcraft Remastered Technical Support
So i downloaded the normal Starcraft (not the HD version) and when i press PLAY
it changes the resolution of my screen and pops an error wich has the following text -Attempted to run in 256 color mode.Please verify that compatibility settings are disabled-. Then when i press ok or close the error it reverses back to normal resolution and nothing happens. Like i didnt press the PLAY button.
Please HELP.

Hello Danithebear,

Please double-check your StarCraft compatibility settings. Locate your starcraft.exe file in StarCraft installation folder, right click on it and select Properties. From there, go to the Compatibility tab and make sure all settings there are unchecked.

Additionally, check your system's display settings. If you have 16 bit color selected, switch to 32 bit and see if the issue persists. :)

I hope this will help you!

Did you also check your system's display settings? What OS you're using?

I am on Windows 7 . What should be my system display setting ? They are the default small option for the sizes.
What should I change

Please check if you're using the 16 bit or the 32 bit color.
Are you using an Intel card? If so, the path should be: Control Panel > Display > Color tab > Set color depth to 32-bit > hit Apply.

Ok so I checked and I am using the 32 bit color but the game still doesn't load.... :( . What more can I try to fix the problem ?
I'm sorry to read that. :(

Could you please post here links to your MSInfo and DxDiag files? You can upload both to Pastebin and then share the links with your reply.

Additionally, please create a new admin account and see if the error persists if you use it to run the game.
