Question about Dk Multimedia Eyewitness Virtual Reality Bird (790778054946)

1 Answer

BIRD.EXE won't run

My sister gave me DK BIRDS in its original package. It is in the Eywitness Virtual Rality Series and copywrite 1996. The back cover says it will run under Windows XP, which is on my four year old XP Pravilion. The first error message says that the sound decomression software hasn't been installed properly and suggests I run Setup again. I've tried that several times to no avail. The second error message says that "BIRD caused a General Protection Fault in module BIRD.EXE at 0007:05ED"

Can I download a working copy of BIRD.EXE?

This is my second try ad submitting this question. The first try gave me the opition of posting the problem and getting a guarinteed solution, which looked like a good idea untill I tried it and was asked for my credit card so I could pay $10 for the service. I tried to go back to get a cheaper response but my question, better spelled than this version, was all gone. I therefore suggest that you modify your website to give folks a second chance at paying for the privilage of givening you feedback on your softeware.

Thank you again for your kind attention.

Hi ,
This product is not compatible with Windows 7 but it should run under Windows XP . If you are running under XP , I suggest you delete the program , reboot your machine and reinstall the program under Windows XP . If it still fails , you could need to reinstall Win XP or use the recovery disc . Launch the disc , select " install a new version of XP " and choose " repair " when you'll be asked to .
Make first sure you have installed SP3 and tested your program with XP fully updated .
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

To resolve this issue:
  1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Services.
  2. Double-click the service that did not start.
  3. Click the Log On tab.
  4. Verify that the service has not been disabled for the hardware profile that you are using. If it has, click Enable.
  5. Click the General tab. Verify that the service has not been disabled in the Startup Type box. If it has, click Automatic to have it start when you start the computer.

The patch for fixing the sound does not open


Most of the DK software was made for older computers that interacted with sound card hardware almost directly.

Todays sound cards are much more advanced.

DK also dont have much support for older oftware and even went third party for distribution etc.

If you have an older computer eg windows 98 tyhen it would probably run fine.

You could even try running it in compatibility mode under vista but I doubt it will fix your issue.

Program not running


I just solved it! Thanks to the help of the previous post. The link was no longer good. But here is the new working link:
http://support.selectsoft.com/customer70/ViewCase.asp?Casenum=33&ReturnPage=FAQ

If this link does not work for you, then simply go to:http://support.selectsoft.com and click on the tab for PC/MAC support. It's listed as one of the top ten FAQ's.

OR

Search the term "DK" in their Search Help Database (without bothering to tell them what type of computer you have, OS, software, etc). It should come up right away. This is a fix for Windows XP. Should work for Windows 7 too, if you're running virtual xp (though I haven't tested that yet.) Not sure about vista.

Sidenote: This is a good place to get info on the 3MB virtual memory fix too, which some older programs require. The short version is this...just set your virtual memory (Start/controlpanel/System/Advanced/Performance - Settings/Advanced/Change) to 4000.
