Question about Ubi Soft Catz 5 (Windows) (680901) for PC
I have had Petz5 for several years and it's always been fine. But now the sound won't install when I play the game. I've tried everything, including using a different computer but it still won't play any sound at all. I just keep getting the message that the sound hasn't initialized as the game begins. I've even tried downloading the latest version of DirectX but that hasn't helped either. Does anyone have any suggestions? And yes, I've tried the help menu too and have checked everything it says to and everything that should be done has been done. I hope someone can help.
Ok, I got an answer from Daniel Wright, who has SP 2 and this is what he says:
"The solution is easy, go to your Petz 5 installation folder and rename setupapi.dll to something like setupapi.bak - Petz 5 will now load without any problems.
The problem only effects Petz 5 as Petz 4 doesn't include that file, and providing the game is patched it continues to run just fine on XP SP2."

Go into your installation folder and delete setupapi.dll or something like that , try the game if it doesn't work (like mine) delete smapi.dll , it worked for me. Also renaming setupapi.dll to setupapi.bak doesn't work , I tried it :op.

You have to go to the supporter page (whatever the creater is) and search for it....you have to delete certain files, I searched for hours one day....It will work, It has every computer I tried it on (5)
