How do I install this popular game ?

Question: How do I install this popular game ?

Hi there,

I downloaded ***************** and it came with a patch and crack.
I extracted it with WinRAR, but don't know how to install it onto the computer. Also in the extracted file is Daemon Tools 3.47 and Vitual CD hide v 1.0.0.4
When I open the text file for instructions, it says....
0. Install the game and apply patch.
1. Make sure the compatibility is set to Windows 2000.
2. Get Daemon Tools 3.47 and mount your FM2006 image.
3. Get Vitrual CD HIDE 1.0.04 and launch it (hide all virtual drives).
4. Run the game.
5. Enjoy.

I haven't a clue what to do next and would greatly appreciate any help.

I'm running Windows XP Home Edition and have plenty of memory.

Thanks.

Preferred Solution: How do I install this popular game ?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

When I start a game of solitare from the program Pretty Good Solitare a dialogue pops up trying to install a DLL for Paperport. I cancel this and all runs fine after that; it doesn't happen until a game is selected from the menu and then only the first time.

I have tried updating the solitare game, no change. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the game, no change. I have not done anything to Paperport for quite sometime, other than use it that is.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this and how did you resolve it?

Thanks for your help

Answer:My new game won't Install!

Hi. . .

I am unfamiliar with the game that you mention, but one item to try is to insert the CD, when the setup appears - stop it.

Go into Computer, select the DVD drive the look for a file named setup.exe, right-click on it and select Run as Administrator. Then go through the set-up process.

You can also check WERCON as it may list a reason for the failure -
START | type wercon and hit enter. Check the various selections on the top left side

Also check the Reliability Monitor found in PERFMON -
START | type perfmon and hit enter | look at the Reliab Mon

Answer:Why am I not able to install a game in my 525?

Best answer I can give.. Head over to windowsphone.com and sign in, type in the name of the app in the search bar, then once you have it click on reinstall, and that should do it :)
Otherwise scroll down on the app/game page (while still on the website), click on download and install manually, save on desktop, connect phone via usb, drag and drop the app file onto the phone, go to the store app in the phone, open it, tap the ellipsis button (three dots - bottom right corner) and select install local app

Answer:cannot install old game

You most likely need to use Compatibility Mode. Below is from Windows Help, and more details are available.

Getting older programs to run on Windows XP

Most programs run properly on Windows XP. The exceptions are some older games and other programs that were written specifically for an earlier version of Windows. To run your program on Windows XP, try the following:

Run the Program Compatibility Wizard. As an alternative, you can set the compatibility properties manually.
Update your program, drivers, or hardware.
These options are covered in detail below.

The Program Compatibility Wizard
This wizard prompts you to test your program in different modes (environments) and with various settings. For example, if the program was originally designed to run on Windows 95, set the compatibility mode to Windows 95 and try running your program again. If successful, the program will start in that mode each time. The wizard also allows you to try different settings, such as switching the display to 256 colors and the screen resolution to 640 x 480 pixels.

If compatibility problems prevent you from installing a program on Windows XP, run the Program Compatibility Wizard on the setup file for the program. The file may be called Setup.exe or something similar, and is probably located on the Installation disc for the program.

Answer:game will not install

Your existing PC most likely does not meet the minimum requirements for that particular game. Usually with modern games it's the graphics card that is not powerful enough, especially if your GPU is integrated on to the motherboard rather than it being a modern and powerful add-on card.Most games require either one of the latest GeForce or Radeon cards.An integrated GPU (like, for example, an Intel one) just isn't good enough.

Firstly, I don't think that voice activation is enabled by default on most machines, so try using the keyboard and mouse to enter commands rather than shouting at the computer.Secondly, you haven't told us what game it is. Find out and while you're at it, tell us what OS you are using. Then post both bits of information here or, better yet, search Google yourself to see if anyone else is having this problemHave a nice day.

a while back my computer was infected by a Trojan virus. my daughter wiped everything off of the PC and reinstalled everything. everything works except for the f 18 carrier strike fighter by i magic which was bought by Microsoft and cannot be contacted. it worked before the virus we tried all of the solutions given with no help my daughter gave up. the game will download to 5 % and stop. an error code 117 comes up. i can go into the game files and on the picture of the plane is a security shield and also on the set up picture. i downloaded the installation for older games from tech support but it says to disconnect the virus protection which i am afraid to do for fear that the virus might still be hanging around in the game program. i checked the code and it said that there might be a third party involved.i would have to spend a year in computer School to know what they are talking about. Ive posted in gaming forum and game installation support tech with no solution as yet. hopefully somebody out there can help me.

I have been trying to install a game on the laptop in the living room, but to no avail. I keep getting a message saying there isn't sufficient space left. This is true, for drive D at least. Drive C however, has over 2 GB space left. I would like to install the game in C. You know, sometimes you get to choose the location you want to save it to. However, whenever I double click on the .EXE it just says I don't have sufficient space.

Is there a way to change the drive where things automatically get installed to? because it seems as though the laptop is trying to install everything to drive D ( insufficient space), blatantly ignoring drive C ( which does have sufficient space).

I had to reformat and reinstall windows twice today in a row! I was playing Crysis on low settings and I was tempted and set them all to high settings, overclocked my 1.8ghz to 2.2ghz and screwed around with something called "PCI mhz" (I think thats what it was called?) which I assume was how you overclocked your video card, basically I screwed everything up and had to restore defaults several times in bios until windows wouldn't even load and my comp would keep rebooting instead heading to the windows loading screen.

Finally got it under control I thought, then I began to install all my .exe (xfire,aim,firefox,etc)stuff that I had backed up on my 2nd hard drive, I should of copied my entire game collection but Didn't have enough space for it until recently.

I have been trying to install a five disc game. Everything works fine until prompted to insert either disk 2 or 3 or 4 (multiple attempts and problems occurs on different disks). I insert the require disk and at this point the cd-rom drive starts spinning ( it sound like it is ) cd-rom light blinks momentarily, but nothing else happens. No cd-rom drive light and no data transfer. It acts like it just locks up. I also get a prompt to insert whatever disk I just inserted and click ok. I try to open and close the drive; however, drive will not open. I click ok and nothing happens, and the prompt stays on the screen until I cancel the installation. This has happened before on other games and I just keep on trying until it finally works, however I can't even get close to installing the game this time.

Could this be a hardware of software problem.

I have defragmented, and cleaned my C:/ drive, I erased the temp files, I have disabled the background tasks and the furthest I got installing the game was 74%. Can anyone tell me the secret to installing this game? I almost want to go buy a new computer...

Answer:I cannot install my sims game

Any errors? Does it just freeze at 74%? If it just freezes, I would think there might be a problem with the disc and not with your PC.

Hiya all,

It won't even let me install the game the first time I tried it started installing but then it froze and crashed. And now when I try to install it, when the screen comes up after you except the terms and conditions it asks you to choose a saving folder for the game, and the continue button is grey (inactive), so I can't install it!!

I figured it's not compatible, how do I make it compatible?

If your graphics card is not dx 10 compatible, then you should install the directx 9 version, or else you wont be able to run the game. When you install DX9 you will still be able to use dx10 later on, no worries.

My problem is that when I click on the instal.exe the screen goes black and does nothing. I can return to the winxp desktop, so the computer is not freezing, just doing nothing.
Is this a symptom of the compatibility issue with XP and DOS games, or more likely to be a corrupt file?

All right, so I recently bought a new computer (it was refurbished)

I've done a lot of tweaking on it already, I installed a new video card and put in a new power supply unit. I am also dualbooting into both Windows 7 and Ubuntu 11.04. On my windows 7 boot, I installed oblivion. Fully installed it on the first try, then after a small issue concerning mods, I had to re-install. It reinstalled fine, but then I realized that I had installed it overtop all the files from the mods (in C:/.../oblivon). So I had to reinstall again. No big deal I though. Well! Now it is giving me a ton of problems.

During the install it gives me the error 0x80070017 and says it can't install. I looked up the error on google and it says that it's data corruption. It happens every time! I've rebooted, uninstalled / reinstalled other games, triple checked that there was nothing in C:/oblivion, everything I can think of. What's going on!?

Question: Game install sizes

I don't play a whole load of games. Not that I wouldn't like to but the children dominate the TVs and our time. By the time they are in bed my wife and i are too exhausted after the working day and sorting family life out. I tried playing Fifa online the other night and fell asleep during a match.

anyway tonight I finally got a decent chance to go on the Xbox one. I had a boxed copy of halo 5 guardians I bought a while back. So I thought ok, install it and maybe there will be a few gigs patch after that. I nearly fell off my chair when on top of the approx 50 gig install it went online to download another 40 odd gigs. The whole install comes to 90 gigs. Aside from wasting two hours waiting it has also gobbled up most of the internal storage. I'm now too tired to try it out. I'm lucky enough to have a decent enough broadband speed of 60 megabits but many still toil on much slower speeds so such large updates seems over the top. But is this really the norm nowadays? I thought games taking 30-40 gigs was extreme but this is nearly 100 gigs install size. It's a bit alarming. Please tell me that halo 5 is a one off!

Answer:how do I install a patch into a game

Just download the patch needed... http://www.softwarepatch.com/games/silent-hunter3.html
With the game closed, open the downloaded patch file and it should guide you through, just like an install.. It will likely ask where to find the games directory.. Then OK/Continue your way through.
It should patch all the files it needs to. Exit when complete, and it should now be 1.4b.

It can be applied only to the retail version of Silent Hunter 3 (and not the downloaded version - only download this update if you purchased Silent Hunter 3 on disc). Importantly, Ubi Soft advise that: 'the new patch modifies game data and in this cases the saves that are made while in missions will not work properly. We highly recommend before installing this patch that "all the Captains should returned to bases" or to load a previous in base save (after install) in order to avoid eventual problems. The update also features over 100 bug fixes, adjustments to ship and campaign data.Click to expand...

Remember to defrag again after the patch, as it may fragment the game files it fixes.. (It just helps with performance)

Recently I did a (bad) manual uninstall of the game Guitar Hero 3 on the pc by following a quite guide. It involved deleting an entry in the registry that was contained in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall.

This now has made the game disappear from the Add/Remove Programs window and so I cannot remove the game from windows memory by that.

When I try to reinstall the game from the CD, I get the Windows Installer package come up and give me the option to Repair or Remove the applicatio. Neither work as I get the message "The wizard was interrupted before Guitar Hero III could be completely installed. Your system has not been modified. To complete installation at another time, please run setup again."
That then re adds some entries to my registry, relating to Missing Shared DLL's. I've ran Error Nuker and it detects these entries that point to missing files and deletes them. However when I try reinstalling again with the CD, it does the whole "repair or remove" options, and if I do either, adds those registry entries again.
Any Ideas? I got no response on another forum, so I thought to try this one.
Thanks.
 

Answer:Can't install game after bad uninstall

Welcome to TSG....

Since you tried a manual uninstall that apparently messed up the registry I would try to do a system restore first.

Do you have the windows recovery/restore disk set for this computer?
