Old alchemy game will not install

Trying to install an old alchemy game from disk. When trying to run disc I am getting an error message saying D:/Poppack-setupexe. This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect.

What do I need to do?

Open a file compression utility, like winzip or 7zip. Drag poppack_setup.exe to the window. All the files should be listed. Extract the files to folder. You can now run alchemy and bejeweled by double-clicking on their exe files. No 'correct' installation is needed. And of course you can create shortcuts so you won't have to go the files every time you want to play.

Try this:

Right click on the D:/Poppack-setup.exe -> Properties = Compatability Tab.

There should be a box that says "Compatibility Mode" that you need to chek, and then select Win95 and hit OK.

Try installing again.

If it still gives the same error, go back to the tab and go lower than the Compatibility Mode box, to Display settings, and chek "Run in 256 colors" and "Disable Visual Themes"

Try again.

If it still wont work, please respond. If it gives a different error at any time or a different problem, please respond.

If it works, please rate. :)

If you have the game disk, put it into your CD tray. Use the Disk to re-install the game to fix any errors. Most games that have this feature will ask if you would like to save your game files, and will prevent you from losing any of your saved games or settings. The game will prompt you to install the game, or play it. Click the install option and it will ask if you want to repair it, or clean install. Click repair if the option is there, if not, then run a clean install and that should fix your issue

Installed game , go to play and error message pops up reading: Wrong Disk Inserted Please insert the original Gold Pack CD/DVD


Did the game come with more than once disc? You may have tried inserting the wrong disc.  If that isn't the case, you may need to download a crack for the game. 
Go to this link:http://m0004.gamecopyworld.com/games/pc_sw_empire_at_war.shtml
And download the file that says "Empire at War: Forces of Corruption [MULTI] No-CD/Fixed Image"
Replace the .exe file in your game directory (normally C://Program Files/"game") with the one that the crack included.
Hopefully your game will run now!

Its dvd rw segarome and wont let me install the game. I have a acer 5920 and i installed the original just fine but the old version doesn't work. Its almost like there is nothing in the disk.


It usually wont work to install from a burned disc you need the original disc to install than you can run the game off the back up disc. you should check your EULA to make sure that you are authorized to make a copy of the disc however.

HI,
The thing is '.dll' type files are a lot of important to run any application and I think that the disk dont have it already in it so there might be a disk problem or this could be because its too old because modern versions of windows like vista, 7 or xp cannot play old games or apps. Your pc probably could play any of the modern games.
Best regards

Video game will not install.


You're refering to your "Talonsoft Old alchemy game" post?

If so, here's a copy of my reply to that post.

Try this:

Right click on the D:/Poppack-setup.exe -> Properties = Compatability Tab.

There should be a box that says "Compatibility Mode" that you need to chek, and then select Win95 and hit OK.

Try installing again.

If it still gives the same error, go back to the tab and go lower than the Compatibility Mode box, to Display settings, and chek "Run in 256 colors" and "Disable Visual Themes"

Try again.

If it still wont work, please respond. If it gives a different error at any time or a different problem, please respond.
