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.

If it works, please rate. :)

Error message: The video card you are running is not supported


I found the following link for this game's hardware requirements:

http://planetmedalofhonor.gamespy.com/mohairborne/

What this means is that your video card (display adapter), the part that creates the graphical image for your monitor, is not enough to run this game.
You will need to get a discrete video card for the computer is order to play this game.
You didn't post your system's information, but I can help you find a compatible card for your system if you are up to doing it yourself, etc.
Provide your brand (Dell, HP) and model # (Inspiron, Pavilion) as well as your version of windows.

Cannot install a game


I assume you are running Vista so try running the setup.exe or install.msi or whatever as administrator. if that doesn't work upgrade the VGA card. yours is integrated which is not good for gaming. puts stress on cpu and steals ram

The error message you got would show up in the following scenarios:
1. DirectX not up-to-date.
2. Video card drivers old.
3. The game being played with a not supported video card.

Check for the above mentioned and it should be either one of them.

To play the game on the least possible settings your video card has to be or meet the performance capabilities of ATI Radeon 9800Pro or better \ NVIDIA Geforce 6600or better
