Receive cant find SIERA.err when i try to open my hoyle classic games
found this on the sierra support site, this was for king's quest, however it should resolve your issue as well ..
Problem: "Windows title not found" error when starting game, followed by "Cannot find SIERRA.ERR". (Windows 3.1 and Windows 95)
Solution: These error messages are caused by a corrupted or
incorrect RESOURCE.WIN file. The RESOURCE.WIN is a small text file that
contains information aout your computer. The game program looks at this
file to determine where the game is installed and where to look for the
game CD. If this file is missing information, you will get the above
error messages. To correct this, edit the RESOURCE.WIN file (it's in
the game directory!) and check that the first three lines look like
title=King's Quest VII
If these two lines are missing or show different information, add them or change them to match the ones above. Remember, they must be the first three lines in the file. Then, check that the last five lines look like this:
These lines assume that King's Quest VII is installed to C: and
that your CD ROM drive is D:. If your drive letters are different, make
the appropriate substitutions. If these five lines are missing or show
different information, add them or change them to match the ones above.
You should also check that the King's Quest VII icon's properties indicate the correct working directory. To do this, click once
on the King's Quest VII icon to highlight it. Then press ALT-ENTER
(Windows 3.1) or right click (Windows 95) to access the icon's
properties. The command line should read:
C:\SIERRA\KQ7\SIERRAWS.EXE C:\SIERRA\KQ7\RESOURCE.WIN (versions 1.4 and 1.51)
C:\SIERRA\KQ7\SIERRAW.EXE -o C:\SIERRA\KQ7\RESOURCE.WIN (version 2.0)
The working directory should be your CD ROM drive, for example,
D:\. If your CD ROM drive is another letter, substitute the appropriate
letter. Click on OK when the working directory is correct.
lemme know if the issue was resolved..
