Can't install X-Files the Game on winXP

I have the 7 CD PC game of X-Files, developed by HyperBole and distributed by Fox Interactive in 1998. I am trying to install this on my current computer with WinXP, and although autorun starts up, I click "install" and nothing happens. Is there a driver or simulator I could use to get this working? My son is dying to play this game. :)

  • This game is not compatible with Windows 7, you can only play this on Windows XP or lower.During the very last part of the installation, the game is allocating the files to the right locations. On Windows 7, some program files are in different places than they used to be in Windows XP.
  • Please reply if you have any more questions. Good Luck!

East West Fron or Operational Art of War able to be played on Windows 7? Are any of these games out there updated?


I got talonsoft eastfront II to run on my windows 7 laptop by using two pieces of software. First I use vmware player and created a virtual machine with a winxp install. Second, I ripped the original game CD using alcohol. This creates an image that preserves the special formatting that is necessary because of the SafeDisc copy protection that is used in this talonsoft game. I mount this image using alcohol since my laptop does not have an optical drive. The vmware player sees the mounted image as a normal cd drive with the original game cd in it. I can install and play eastfront II in the win xp virtual machine. I installed the 1.02 patch. No other special settings were necessary. All features appear to work with this setup. The videos play, the unit viewer works (help files with transparency does not work in win 7 normally), background music and sfx are streamed off the virtual cd.

Since windows 7 you cant Host a game anymore! The only chance to host and play Hidden & Dangerous Deluxe under Windows 7 is to install VMWare Player and then install WinXP on it (VERY EASY AND FAST, you need a WinXP CD or a ISO file). Then you have to activate Direct3D under the settings of VMWare and it installs automatically VMWare Tools. After this you can install H&D Deluxe on the VM and play the game in full resolution and full speed (fps) without any error!

This helps if you have problems with hosting a game under Win7 with these errors:

Trojan virus from dvd bought at best buy


I also got this DVD combo package and got the virus warning. Did some serious digging. It is not the game, it is a loader that the developer has added to the combo version of it. The solution is easy. I did it for myself and a friend with the same issue.

1 Turn off your anti-virus (to avoid the warning).

2 Use explorer to navigate to the installed directory. I think it is c:\\program files\city-interactive\game name....

3 find the file listed as "game.exe" this is the loader. Delete it!

4 find the file listed as "game.bin" and rename it "game.exe". This is the real game program file.

5 repeat for the other game that is giving same problem.

6 Reboot and restart you'r anti-virus

7 enjoy your game!

Games installation


look for the crack file containing on your cd disc1 (if it has cd disc2). copy it and overwrite to the folder of the game located at the program files. click the icon game on your desktop and it should be working.

if still didnt work and it has no crack file then you should have a virtual drive. does the game playable whenever a cd is inserted? install a DAEMON TOOLS or ALCOHOL 120% on your computer.

ask me you need a help and pls dont forget to rate my solution. thanks!

cheers
