If it starts to install and then crashes try running the install program in Compatibility mode with a previous version of Windows. Most of the time when I run into this it is a compatibility issue. If your CD drive is not reading teh disk then the problem is the CD drive or CD itself.

Hello,

First install MOO2 on a computer were it runs and copy the entire micropose directory to the program files (x86) directory.

Then copy the dplayx.dll file from the windows\sysWOW64 directory and renamed it dplay.dll and put it back in the sysWOW64 directory (be sure the dplayx.dll file is still there) or if you have the 32 bit version it should be found in the system32 directory (I am guessing, but you will need a dplay.dll)

Found this great post about getting MOO2 to run in Windows 7, and even with the compatibility enabled it still has a graphics palette problem. The reason is because of Windows explorer, and to fix the problem you need to disable explorer.

I know this can be a little too much for some, there is an easier way.

Simply create a notepad file on your desktop, and paste the following.

(If you have 32-bit version of Windows 7.)

TASKKILL /F /IM "explorer.exe"
cd C:\"Program Files"\Microprose\Orion2
start /w C:\"Program Files"\Microprose\Orion2\Orion95.exe
start C:\Windows\explorer.exe

(Copy and paste below if you have 64-bit)

TASKKILL /F /IM "explorer.exe"
cd C:\"Program Files (x86)"\Microprose\Orion2
start /w C:\"Program Files (x86)"\Microprose\Orion2\Orion95.exe
start C:\Windows\explorer.exe

Make sure you rename the text file to Moo2.bat, then it will launch Moo2 and disable explorer. Moo2 plays perfectly fine this way, even without any of the compatibility enabled.

The Batch file will also restore your explorer when you exit the game.

Alternatively, you could use DosBox to play the game.

6. Click "Browse" and click on "Computer" then under "Devices with Removable Storage" double-click the "R2-D2_0105" (it is easy to spot due to the R2-D2 next to the name).
7. Then click once on "R2D2MENU" and click "Open" (its next to cancel), then click "Next".
8. After it scans for a few seconds, double-click "Try recommended settings"and click "Start the program..." (when the permission pop-up appears click: Allow or yes. whichever one grants it access.) then once the menu is open click on "install Viewer/Driver and install everything.
9. when you are done, click "EXIT" and in the "Program Compatibility" window click "Next". Then click "Yes, save these setting for this program" and you are all done and it should work!

The software you are installing has not passed Window Logo testing to verify its compatibility with Window XP


this is a general warning stating that Microsoft has not tested this software in their labs, and cannot guarrantee that the program will run, or that there may be errors when the program runs.

Most of the time, programs installed after this warning do not have many issues. If they do, sometimes a quick call or email to the software support team will be able to offer advice or fix the issue at hand

Compatability issue


Hi,

How to install an XP/Vista program on Windows 7


First of all locate the setup or installer file, this will be either in the contents of a CD/DVD (you have to explore the contents of the CD/DVD) under the name "setup" or a downloaded .exe (executable) file.

Right click on the setup file and select "Properties" from the sub menu.

A Properties windows will appear on screen, click on the "Compatibility" tab.
At the bottom of the tab you will see the header "Privilege Level".

Check the box that says "Run this program as an administrator"

Also at the top of the Compatibility tab you will see "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
Check that box and if you have the option select Windows XP (service pack 3).

Click Apply and then OK and install your program.

NOTE: if you have upgraded from Vista Windows XP mode may not be available depending on how you system was configured.


How to run an installed program on Windows 7


Some programs will install but they won't run on Windows 7. Again this down to compatibility but unlike Vista, Windows 7 has the compatibility mode working down to a tee.


Locate the desktop icon or the program in "All Programs" from the Start Menu or Orb as it's affectionately known today.

Just as in my tip about installing a program it is just the same.

moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngmoz-screenshot-2.pngRight click on the icon or file and select "Properties" from the sub menu.

A Properties windows will appear on screen, click on the "Compatibility" tab.
At the bottom of the tab you will see the header "Privilege Level".

Check the box that says "Run this program as an administrator"

Also at the top of the Compatibility tab you will see "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
Check that box and if you have the option select Windows XP (service pack 3).

Click apply and then OK and run the program.


NOTE: If you have upgraded from Vista Windows XP mode may not be available depending on how you system was configured.

there is a safety brake wire that needs to be hooked up. If it was installed professionally, have them explain it to you.There is not supposed to be any video players in view of the driver while in motion. Stop your car and put on the parking brake. If you installed it yourself, you probably didnt hook up the wire. Look inthe install manual for DVD safety wire.

Installation of webcam


Normal 0 You need to go to the manufactures site and download the VISTA driver for the camera. Then follow the info below to install the program.



Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
