Question about Xicat Interactive Gothic for Windows

Unable to remove Gothic from my computer

I have tried many times to remove Gothic from my computer, both with and without the program disk in the machine. The uninstall wizard starts, and immediately I hear a snip of Gothic music, and the process finishes. My Computer shows there is still a 16 MB file on my drive. Deleting it from the directory tree doesn't work either.

First, Try removing it in Safe Mode. If you are not familiar with Safe Mode:

Turn your PC on or Restart. As soon as you see the black and white screen, press and hold the F8 key. Continue holding until you see a black and white menu. Safe Mode is F3 or F5.

Click Start, Programs, run your AV program, install, uninstall, whatever.

When it is finished, Restart.

You will probably find your icons messed up. No biggee. Drag them back into place.

If it doesnt work try this:

I am unable to uninstall a program called The last Airbender. I opened Contro; panel, remove programs. When I click on the file I get a promt that reads "could not open INSTALL.LOG file. What can I do. ...


Try uninstalling it using program like CCleaner or Revo Uninstaller. It should do the trick. I also recommend using Eraser to clean the mess in your registry left by programs that are no longer installed.

I keep getting the notice: Unable to authenticate original disk within run time limet


Hi there.

It sounds like your copy may be having issues connecting to the authentication server. Try temporarily disabling your antivirus and firewall, and adding the .exe for the game to the allowed programs.

OR

This is what you do:
1: Right click my computer, properties.
2: [Click] on advanced system settings
3: Go to Advanced, Performance click on [settings]
4:Click on [Data Execution Prevention]
5: Add your application and apply.

It should then work, goodluck

Is there a way i can play warlords battlecry without disk?


yes their is a way but without the original disk you may not have any luck.

but their are things called cd emulators.
If basicaly tricks your computer into thinking you have a cd/dvd drive on your comptuer you really don't.

you then can find or make .images or .roms of your cd using programs like nero burning rom. you can load and save the disk on your computer that way. Then you use one of your cd-emulators and load that rom into it. Doing that your comptuer things your disk that you have bought is in your computer.
But thier is no legal way to trick your computer into thinking you have a disk for something aleady installed on your computer.

please take the time to rate me

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.

Unable to Validate Game Version


Two causes for this error meassge either you are not running the latest version of World of Warcraft, or your game files have been modified.

It is possible that you have a virus or program which is modifying files on your computer. Scan your computer with an updated anti virus program to make sure that your machine is clean. Then make sure you are launching the game using Launcher.exe
If none of the above helps they are a few repairing tools that might fix your game, you might want to check "Fix Wareout".

Good luck.
