INSTALL BUT CAN'T PLAY

I PURCHASED DEER HUNTER TOURNAMENT FOR MY GRANDSON AND WE ARE HAVING A PROBLEM WITH IT. WE CAN INSTALL IT, BUT WHEN HE GOES TO PLAY WE GET THE MESSAGE THAT THERE IS A MICROSOFT ERROR. WE HAVE SENT THE REPORT AS PROMPTED TO MICROSOFT. MY COMPUTER HAS WINDOWS XP HOME EDITION. IS THIS GAME CAPATABLE? THANK YOU.

    The suggested solution above is relative to Vista, not XP Home Edition.  You may be having a DirectX problem as this game should run on XP.  Do you use other games with no problems?  Here are the minimum requirements for this game: Minimum specs



    Operating System
    Windows XP/ Vista

    Processor
    Pentium 4 - 2 GHz

    Memory
    512 MB RAM for Windows XP (1 GB RAM for Windows Vista)

    Hard Disk space
    1.20 GB

    DVD-ROM Drive
    8x

    Video
    64 MB graphics card with shader model 1.1

    Sound
    Direct X 9 compatible sound card

    DirectX
    Direct X version 9.0c

    Modem
    Broadband 256 Mbit

    If your pc meets these requrements then please tell me exactly what the error says. :)

    The below taken for a tech support forum.



    What about right clicking on your .exe file and under properties, then compatibility
    run as administrator
    run as XP SP2

    then right click on the folder the game is in and go into properties, security
    click the EDIT button
    for all those users allow full control but the main one is your username for the computer
    click on - FULL CONTROL

If you have XP you uninstall your game. reboot and press F9. go to safemode and fire up the autorun. if nothing happens when you press install you restart your computer and log in your normal user. Then you install your game and it should work perfectly =) had the same problem in red alert 2 and after i did that i had no problems.

but if you can install it in safe mode just continue and it also should work =) (remember to install it for all users)

Why do people wear bright orange while hunting?


I used to wonder this myself! It's so that the hunters can be spotted by other hunters because apparently it's pretty common to confuse camouflaged people with whatever you are hunting.
