Game won't allow installion on 64bit computer?

  1. Anyone got any suggestions on how to get the game to install? windows 7 64bit. Just says "The version of the file is not compatible with the version of windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see where you need an x86 (32bit) or x64 (64bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher. Is it saying buy a 64bit version of this game?

  1. I would suggest trying to rip the CD image to an ISO and then run it through a virtual drive (daemon tools, power ISO etc.) in compatibility mode with windows 95 or 98. if neither of those works and you really want to play the game you can download it from gog.com for $5.99. if you go for the download make sure too use their download client, i used my browsers DL client the first time and got the same issue you're having now. Also as far as i know there is now 64bit version of this game, however gog.com has modded it to run on XP or Vista 32 or 64bit. runs just fine on my windows 7 64bit.

  3. I may be a little late on this, but I too had the same problem until I did this. Put in the Play disk, explore the disk, and click on Autorun.exe don't click on setup.exe or you'll get the same problem. That's how I got mine to work. Hope it works for you too.

  4. Wait I meant the install disk! My bad... I'm new to this. Put in the Install disk, explore the disk, then click autorun.exe.

  5. Go into the disk with explorer.

    Run Setup.exe from the setup folder.

    Instal mods / patches as needed.
