No, this doesn't cost unless you sign up for Premium Assistance.

  1. Remove the disc from the drive.
  2. Look at the top of the disc (or game box). Verify whether it is a CDROM or DVD-ROM.
  3. If it is a DVD-ROM, verify the drive on your computer that you are inserting the disc into is capable of reading DVD-ROMs.
  4. Go to My Computer and verify which drive letter is the drive you'll be inserting the disc into.
  5. Insert the disc.
  6. Wait 20 seconds. If the disc doesn't automatically start up, go to step 7.
  7. Open My Computer and double click the drive containing the disc.
  8. If My Computer now shows the disc contents, find the most likely ".exe" file and run it.

Hey! so i recentley remembered the game Hype: the time quest in the back of my head and i brought back the cd from 1999 and tried to install it on my new windows 7 64 bit computer. it was a failed...


64-bit versions of Windows can't run the CD installer due to it being a 16-bit application. Trying to run the installer in Windows 7 x64 will cause the process to freeze in the background and require the task manager to close. One workaround is to install the game on a 32-bit copy of Windows and transfer the installed game to a 64-bit computer. A virtual machine will also work such as VirtualBox if you don't have another computer available. When installing the game select 'Full Installation'. The game installs to three locations:

  • Your specified install path. The default is C:\Ubi Soft\Hype - The Time Quest . This is where the game data is stored and the two executables for Direct3D and Glide mode.
  • C:\Windows\Ubisoft . This has an application called SetupUbi that shortcuts point to to play the game, various *.dlls, and Ubi.ini, the settings file for the game.
  • The registry key location is HKLM\Software\Ubi Soft\Hype - The Time Quest . Only a version string is stored here.

Copy the game data folder to your 64-bit windows and place the Ubi.ini folder into a C:\Windows\Ubisoft folder. The other files in the Ubisoft folder are not needed to play the game and SetupUbi has the same problem as the installer on the CD. The registry key is also not required to play the game.

The executables to play the game are MaiD3Dvr_bleu and MaiDFXvr_bleu for Direct3D and Glide mod respectively. Neither will work with default settings in Windows 7 x64. Set the compatibility mode for the executables to 'Windows 2000' to get the game to run without immediately failing. To change the game settings run 'UbiAssistant' as an administrator or edit the Ubi.ini file in the C:\Windows\Ubisoft folder. There is a patch available at Ubi.com labeled 'Voodoo 3 and Direct3D'. It is uncertain if this is required but is recommended to install. The patch is ~4.01 MB if the Ubi.com link goes down and a replacement download needs to be found.

The Direct3D mode will suffer serious graphical glitches that render the game unplayable by the end of the intro. There is no available fix for it. nGlide is a Glide wrapper available at Zeus Sooftware which does support Hype - The Time Quest. Download and install it and then download the patch for the game. The patch is in the compatibility list at the bottom of the nGlide download link and then search for the entry for Hype - The Time Quest. The patch says to turn videos off but this is not a required step but it is recommended. The game will still play with videos but besides the Ubisoft logo video at the start of the game there are only two others at the start and end of the game and playing the video may cause future issues. Turn it on when you start and finish the game but turn videos off at all other times.

Run MaiDFXvr_bleu.exe to use the glide wrapper, remember to set compatibility mode to Windows 2000, and Hype - The Time Quest should run on Windows 7 x64!

I cannot install any software. NSIS error!


Hi

1.Go to "Start," click on "Run," type "cmd" in the text box, and then click on "OK."
2.On to the black window that opens up, click and drag the software installation file icon that you wish to install. For example, suppose you want install Google Talk on your computer and the setup file (googletalk-setup.exe) is stored in the "C:\\Software" folder. Click and drag the "googletalk-setup.exe" icon from the Software folder, onto the black window. Once you have dragged it, the entire path (C:\\Software\\googletalk-setup.exe) shows up on the black screen.
3.Press the spacebar on your keyboard and type "/NCRC". In our example, "C:\\Software\\googletalk-setup.exe /NCRC".
4.Press "Enter." The setup program will start now.


Note:

Even after following the above procedure, if the installation still does not start, then the installation file is damaged. Download a fresh copy of the software and try again.

I inserted a game into my Acer (Windows 7) computer CD Drive... Although I cannot seem to get the game to load. Is there any solution, or is my computer just not able to handle those graphics. As soon as...


Well in oder to check if your computer can run the game try this website.

As for getting the game to load from the disk, try going to My Computer and then right clicking on the disc which should show as a D: or E: and choose explore or open. Once you are looking at the files on the disc look for the setup.exe or install.exe. This should install the game and any other dependencies needed if it is able to run on your machine.

How to install microsoft office


Insert the installation CD and wait for the setup wizard to load. After you insert the installation CD into your computer's CD-ROM drive, a dialog box will appear prompting you to begin installation. If this dialog box does not appear, double-click your CD drive and explore the contents of the CD. Double-click the file called "setup.exe" to start installation.
Select an installation type. In the setup wizard, click the "Next" button until the dialog box asks you to select an installation type. You must select either "Minimum," "Typical" or "Advanced" installation. Although the "Typical" installation is recommended, you can select "Minimum" if you wish to use as little hard disk space as possible to install Microsoft Office XP. Selecting "Advanced" will require you to select individual components you wish to install. Do not choose this installation type if you are unfamiliar with these components.
Finish the setup wizard and restart your computer. Click "Next" and wait for the progress bar to indicate that the installation was successful. Click "Finish" to close the dialog box and finish installation. When the dialog box closes, restart your computer

Hasbro MasterMind does not install on Windows XP or Windows 7 ! Do they have a newer version available ? I loved the game but it only played on Windows 98 ..... Anyone have any ideas ? Thanks...


Have you tried running the installer in compatibility mode? Right click on the installer (usually setup.exe or install.exe, and if you have it on a CD, you need to open the CD in My Computer as a folder by right clicking and choosing open), go to Properties -> Compatibility -> Check the 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' check box, and select 'Windows 98/Windows' ME from the drop-down menu. Apply the changes or click 'OK', and try to run the .exe -file. If the game successfully installs, and you can't still launch it, do the same to the game's launch .exe -file.

I HAVE THE RPINTMASTER GOLD 18 PROGRAM AND IT WILL NOT DOWNLOAD WHEN I PUT THE INSTALL CD INTO MY COMPUTER WHAT DO I DO TO MAKE IT INSTALL?


Insert the INSTALL CD into your drive and left click the Windows START button in the lower left of your screen.

For Windows XP click RUN. In the OPEN box type D:\setup.exe, substituting your your drive designator for D, then click RUN.

For Windows VISTA type D:\setup.exe in the START SEARCH box (substituting for D as above) and click ENTER.

This should work for just about any software CD that will not autostart when inserted in your computer's CD drive. If it doesn't work, you may have a defective CD.
