Question about Dk Multimedia Dinosaur Hunter Deluxe (0789472570)

1 Answer

I found a cd-rom for Dinosaur Hunter, but when I try to install it for my son, it doesn't install the sound portion, and when I try to run it, it says that the sound wasn't installed properly and that I have to re-install. What could be wrong and how do I fix the problem? Is there any kind of installation software that I can download to get it to play?

Try running the install in compatibility mode for windows xp. Do this by exploring the cd rom, right clicking the setup file, and select compatibility, run this program in compatibility mode for win XP sp2.

Right click over the app installer and click properties,

Go to the compatibility tab and make sure to have the settings as my screenshot

apply changes and click ok.

Try to install the app after that.

if it doesn't work then you need a newer version of the software.

I am trying to run the "my amazing human body" cd-rom game. it says the sound software is not installed right or not working properly. we bought it new and worked once and now it wont. we have xp...


XP should be able to run it because they're backwards compatible with all Windows 98 software. Check your sound card in the Device Manager and verify the device and its' driver are installed. If not, re-install the driver for your sound card.

Installing the jumpstart advanced 1stgrade cd rom that has 4 cds to it and I can't get it to install.


Jumpstart advanced 1stgrade cd rom installation.

System Requirements
Windows: 98/ME/2000/XP; Pentium II 266MHz (Pentium II 300MHz or faster for XP); 64 MB RAM (128 MB RAM for XP); 100 MB HD; 12x CD-ROM drive; 16-Bit color; Windows compatible sound card

If you are installing on a newer OS ie Vista, or Win 7, due to software incompatibility the software might not install, or even you can install the software might no work.

You can try using the "compatibility mode" in Vista or Win 7 to install the programs as "administrator" but no guarante this will work.

Alternatively, you can get a newer version which is compatible to your Operating System.

Hope it helps.

I put the cd rom into the drive and nothing happens. I go to click on the icon under my computer and it causes the window not to respond.


Confirm that the CD drive is not a CD-ROM dive and the CD you are trying to open is is not a DVD. CD-ROM drive wil not open a DVD ROM and in some cases will cause the system to stop responding if youtry to run it.

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.

Can't run a CD-ROM. Getting error 1005 on .x32 files. The CD won't even read. Do I need to download some drivers?


1. Make sure the CD-ROM is clean & does not have scratches.
2. Try cleaning the lens of your CD-ROM drive using a lens cleaning kit.
3. Try reading the CD-ROM on another CD-ROM drive.

Vista won't run it


Go to the start menu, and find the games executable icon. Right click on it and select properties. Then click the tab that says compatibility, select run this program in compatibility mode, and choose windows xp service pack 2. That should get you up and running once you click ok, then start your game.

Dinosaur Hunter GSP (A2847M2X)


I have found the solution to help you all. You all need to download a small patch which only took 5 seconds for me. The website is http://support.selectsoft.com/products/D/LDDINHUNTJ.htm#Downloads

you need to click on DKSP1.exe under Downloads which is in blue on the left side of the page at the top. Once downloaded you can go to your game and play. This should help and i hope it does.
Happy game playing!
