Question about Aspyr 1701 A.D. for Windows, Mac

4 Answers

1701 needs a certain driver

My friend just gave me his used game of 1701 ad and i was able to install it yesterday night. I try to play it on a windows vista but it always goes on a black screen than changes to a white with the popup that looks like a 1701 ad popup on a light blue screen saying the following.

The copy protection system is not installed on your computer. Install SupportDRVsetup.exe from your cd/dvd to install the drivers.

Was there maybe another disc I needed from him?

Please help, it's a really fun game and I really want to play it.
Thanks!!

I am the same person. I realized that this 1701 A.D disc supports windows, not windows vista, which I was using.
Thank you everyone that tried to help me.

This game can be run in windows vista, even 64 bit versions. The error you are getting is because the copyright protection driver is not installed. You can run the SupportDRVsetup.exe from the "Support" folder on the game disc. There are two different versions. The one with 64 in the name is for 64 bit operating systems, while the other file is for 32 bit operating systems and you will want to run either file as an Administrator.

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.

What is wrong with my Kindle? The help you gave the other night helped some but now it is worse.


Have you tried adding the program again? If you haven't spent a lot of money, you might want to download again. This will be a NEW game. Plays and score have to be loaded again, Ask the players to add you to their game again.

I get an error that says "insufficient privlages; you must be an administrator to run this application for the first time


To prevent this error from occurring, make sure the folder location into which you are installing has Full Control permissions for either the Everyone group or the SYSTEM group. Check the permissions for the parent folders because the permissions on these folders may also cause this problem.

or try open it as an
administrator
