Can't install Microids Nostradamus after downloading

When I click on setup.exe it tells me to insert the disk or browse to folder where files are located. I nav to the folder but it says, "can't find 'setup-1.bin". But I can see there are 3 .bin files in the folder. When they were downloaded they were named "Nostradamu-setup1.bin", etc. So I renamed them to simply "setup-1.bin", 2, etc. but it still didn't work. I've tried repeatedly to get help from Microids - it's been nearly 3 weeks and they DO NOT respond. Very frustrating. I won't ever buy another game from them. Thanks for your help!

SOURCE: Missing DLL files

This means the file is missing some DLL files, dynamic link library files, meaning that the game itself is missing some components files to run. Only thing you can do is run an integrity scan on the game and find out which files you are missing and then get them manually. Or you can just find the game on some other site.

When i open the game it open but i canot play because he told me (the computer)insert the disk to play but please i want to play


First of all you find that is there any crack folder in your game disc, if "yes", then open that and copy the game (.exe) file and paste on your game directory where you are installed the game, it will ask you to replace, click on "yes". Now you can play, no error will occur. If there is no crack folder in your game disc, then you have to play that game with disc support.

Find the program in the installation directory. It might be something like C:\Program Files\The Adventure Company\Microids\StillLife

Now right-click on Stilllife.exe, then click Properties. Click the Compatibility tab, then select Windows 98/ME from the drop down menu. Hit OK and try to run the game again. It should start up just fine.

this is the definition: The component qualifier not present.
This error occurs when a file compressed inside Setup.exe cannot be extracted. Verify that there is sufficient disk space available in the Temp folder (or, if not, in the Windows or WinNT folder), and that Setup can write to those folders.

Can't run 1701 Ad with Windows XP SP3


Use restore point and go back to before SP3. Wait a couple of weeks and download it again. They should have the bugs out by then.

You can still try to make the game compatible for installing it on the Windows Vista by following the steps below.

1. Insert the game disc in your CD-ROM drive, if the game setup or the autorun starts, exit it.

2. Open "Computer", Right Click the Cd Drive which has the game disk in it and select "Copy".

3. Go to your "Desktop" right click and then select "New" and click on "Folder" this should create a new folder on your desktop.

4. Open the New Folder and then Right Click and select "Paste".

6. After all the files are copied to the "New Folder" without any error messages then locate the file "Setup.exe" or "Setup" and right click and click on "Properties".

7. In the new window click on the "Compatibility" tab and run the program in compatibility mode for "Windows XP Service Pack 2" and then click on "Apply".

8. After applying changes double click on "Setup.exe" or "Setup" to launch the installation.

You can delete all the files copied from the CD after completing the installation

The game files need to be copied to the hard drive because the files on the game disk would not let you make changes while on the disk.

After the game is successfully installed right click on the game shortcut or the game "AOM.exe" in the root folder of the game and click and click on "Properties".

In the new window click on the "Compatibility" tab and run the program in compatibility mode for "Windows XP Service Pack 2" and then click on "Apply". (You can also try with the other options also)

The game files need to be copied to the hard drive because the files on the game disk would not let you make changes while on the disk.

The same set of steps can be used for installation of older games installation on Windows Vista.

To make the all the files of the game compatible to Windows Vista you need to install the game and then make changes to the game exe file.

Some game ".exe" file (executeable file) would let you make changes in the Compatibility option, whereas older games might not give that option at all.

You can still try to make the game compatible for installing it on the Windows Vista by following the steps below.

1. Insert the game disc in your CD-ROM drive, if the game setup or the autorun starts, exit it.

2. Open "Computer", Right Click the Cd Drive which has the game disk in it and select "Copy".

3. Go to your "Desktop" right click and then select "New" and click on "Folder" this should create a new folder on your desktop.

4. Open the New Folder and then Right Click and select "Paste".

6. After all the files are copied to the "New Folder" without any error messages then locate the file "Setup.exe" or "Setup" and right click and click on "Properties".

7. In the new window click on the "Compatibility" tab and run the program in compatibility mode for "Windows XP Service Pack 2" and then click on "Apply".

8. After applying changes double click on "Setup.exe" or "Setup" to launch the installation.

9. After the game is installed go to the game directory and find the "LetsRide.exe" and click on "Properties" and repeat step no.7

You can delete all the files copied from the CD after completing the installation

The game files need to be copied to the hard drive because the files on the game disk would not let you make changes while on the disk.

There are lot of files that need to be changed in order to get full functionality and to communicate with operating system and the hardware, hence there is no guarantee that the game might run even in cases where you will successfully install an older version of the game with the above mentioned steps.

The same set of steps can be used for installation of older games installation on Windows Vista.

The game was released in 1998, and was developed for Windows 95/98.

To make the game run on Windows XP, try the compatibility for the installation and after it is installed use the same steps for making the game executable file compatible.

Note: Some game ".exe" file (executable file) would let you make changes in the Compatibility option, whereas older games might not give that option at all.

You can still try to make the game compatible for installing it on the Windows Vista by following the steps below.

1. Insert the game disc in your CD-ROM drive, if the game setup or the autorun starts, exit it.

6. After all the files are copied to the "New Folder" without any error messages then locate the file "Setup.exe" or "Setup" and right click and click on "Properties".

Installing


The game was released back in 2002, that means it was designed for older versions of Windows OS (Windows 98/ME/XP). The updates for the game do not have any patches for the installation to be compatible to the new Windows Vista OS as they were released on November, 21st 2002 aslo that patches resolve functionality issues after the game is successfully installed.

Some game ".exe" file (executeable file) would let you make changes in the Compatibility option, whereas older games might not give that option at all.

You can still try to make the game compatible for installing it on the Windows Vista by following the steps below.

1. Insert the game disc in your CD-ROM drive, if the game setup or the autorun starts, exit it.

2. Open "Computer", Right Click the Cd Drive which has the game disk in it and select "Copy".

3. Go to your "Desktop" right click and then select "New" and click on "Folder" this should create a new folder on your desktop.

6. After all the files are copied to the "New Folder" without any error messages then locate the file "Setup.exe" or "Setup" and right click and click on "Properties".

7. In the new window click on the "Compatibility" tab and run the program in compatibility mode for "Windows XP Service Pack 2" and then click on "Apply".
