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. :)

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.

I am trying to load on D;/setupexe but it will not install.


I'm presuming this is an optical disk (CD or DVD) containing (printer?) software you wish to install ... right?

If so, are you trying to launch the "setup.exe" file from a cmd/Command Prompt shell by typing it in, then "enter"? If so, the most glaring problem is typographical error ... "D;/setupexe" > should be "D:setup.exe"

If not the above, does any installer dialog (i.e., window) display soon after inserting the disk into the drive? If the disk does indeed contain a software installation package with a "setup.exe" file, then this likely indicates "autoplay" is deactivated for that particular drive. If this is the case, it can be corrected by right-clicking the subject drive icon and modifying the settings on the "Autoplay" tab. Or alternatively accomplshed using "TweakUI". It's available at http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/System-Tweak/TweakUI.shtml. However, get this handy and dandy Microsft utility regardless of this situation if you don't already have it.

This leaves the last scenario: Are you maually trying to launch the file by clicking on it? If so, what error dialog(s) are you encountering and what EXACTLY does it say?

TIP: A very rudimentary way to test the readability of a CD/DVD disk is to insert it into a drive, then launch "Command Prompt" and type in "DIR /S DRIVE_LETTER:" (without quotes), then hit enter. EXAMPLE: DIR /S D:
If it successfully displays every file on the disk (implies it's read), it's a fair indication of A-OK readable status.

That's the best shot in the dark I can make with the limited amount of info provided in the question. Please respond with additional info/feedback in order to help zero in on defining the problem.

To install wii fit


    "Unable to read the disc" / "Disc could not be read" / "Eject the Game Disc" Error Message.
    If you are getting one of the above error messages:
  • Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc. insertdisccorrect.gif
    • If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
    • If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards


  • If you know you are inserting the Game Disc correctly, but are still have the same problem with only one game (or if you only have one game), try cleaning the Game Disc by following the disc cleaning procedures

  • If after reading the above information you are still unable to play a game disc, please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options.
