My Luxor game freezes up.

I just bought a laptop and a new Luxor game. I installed the game and it worked great for a few weeks and then it started freezing up after playing the first screen. My luxor also freezes up after several minutes. Has anyone been able to contact the company for a downloadable fix?

    Yes, I have the same problem - The screen freezes up after the first round of play - so disappointing.

    I have the same problem with Luxor. Sometimes it freezes right up and other times it lets me get further into the game before freezing up. If anyone out there has a solution it would be greatly appreciated.

It may not be a compatibility issue. If the game starts at all then it should work in XP no problem. What is the condition of the disc, is it really scratched? Try to clean it and use a scratch repair kit to eliminate some scratches. You could bring it in to Blockbuster, they will resurface it for about $5.

I would suspect that your PC does not meet the minimum requirements for the game. Do you know what type of graphics card you have in your computer?

It can sometimes help to upgrade your video drivers. If you get me the model number of your computer I can provice a link to the drivers. What version of Windows are you using?

I have had the same issue and it went away after cleaning out my almost full hard drive.

Most likely your GPU has a broken solder point on the mother board.

Install the disk to the harddrive.
If your disk is scratched, borrow a friends disk and install it. Then use your damaged disk to start the game (that is installed on your xbox).

It might sound wierd but newer machines tend to have problems with older software. You do not give details of your system specification, but this game is not listed as compatible with Vista or Windows 7. It may work up to a point in compatibility mode but this may be the reason for it crashing. Other reasons can be that it was tested with graphics cards available at the time and newer cards may have some features not accounted for in the software, which may also cause problems.

I have bought myself a new computer with windows 7. i have tried to install my most favourite game, il2 1946. i cannot get it to install... what is wrong with it?

For complete instructions on how to get it working see , however the quick version is:
  • Insert disk
  • Do NOT use the autoplay installer. Navigate the disk, find and run a file called "a.exe". The game installation will start.
  • When the installer starts, choose "custom install" and make sure the installation folder is NOT inside C:\Program Files\ or C:\Program Files (x86). Windows is over protective of these folders and wont let IL2 (or you) change any game settings. Simplest is to create a folder called C:\Games and install it there.
  • Start the game. If you get a Securom error, go to and follow the instructions.
Or you can just buy GOG download version that has no copy protection and is compatible all the way to Windows 8.

Game won't start

Did you run the installation package you downloaded? What game is it? Once everything is installed you should be able to start the game from your start menu.

If there was no CD then you should have returned the game to where you bought it to exchange it for another box.

Vista OS

It does not work with vista at least not for me. And besides with XP and Vista you shouldn't have to install it anyway as both OS's have a feature called plug and play which means that when you plug it in via a USB port Windows Xp automatically recognize it and its driver. Thats one thing about XP thats so great XP just about recognizes every joystick and game pad driver there is without installing the pads software.

Using dual gamepad on laptop

That gamepad comes with a cd software that you need to install. After installation go to Start----->Control Panel----->Game Controllers and configure it as the default game pad. You can do all the settings here for it.
