Question about Hasbro Interactive Axis and Allies for Windows

1 Answer

I have recently changed my hard drive but have retained the old one as an external (back-up). I have attempted to play A & A and have installed it on both drives (it is now only on the external)but when I try to start the game, I get an error message saying "No adapters available). The operating system is Windows XP. Your assistance will be much appreciated. John Bedford-James

Hi John,

The game Axis and Allies normally use network protocol for networked gaming. It can not find a network adapter with that protocol and gives that message.

Go to your network properties.
Select your adapter and add that protocol to it.

Hope this helps.

    K but u r dealing with a 72 yr old ! Where do I find "Network Properties" and what protocol do I add ? Sorry to be so inept but I used to be able to play but now cannot get it to load. I do not wish to play with other users and I do not have a network at home.

    Hi,



    The game is a network game but you do not have to play on a network.

    But the game asks for a adapter to be able to play. That's why you may set up a network adapter for the game not to ask an available adapter.



    If you connect to internet, so you may have a network card and the network protocol (TCP/IP Protocol) should have been added. In the game setup that protocol should be used.





    To determine if the TCP/IP protocol is properly installed on your system:



    Click on the "Start" button.

    Click on "Control Panel".

    Click on "Network and Internet Connections".

    Now click on "Network Connections".

    Click on "Network Connections" .

    Right-click on "Local Area Connection" and select "Properties".

    Look for any entries in the list of installed network components labeled "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)".





    If TCP/IP is not installed then you will need to add it:

    Click the "Install" button.

    Click on "Protocol" and select "Add".

    Click on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" and click the "OK" button.

    Follow the on-screen instructions.





    Hope this helps.



    Regards.

    Hi again,





    I think your operating system has already available adapter.



    If you reinstall the game to the C drive, it may see the available adapters automatically during setup and may run.

Mac error 2066


Hi Taylor
I have been dealing with Mac's for over 20 years. Bought my first in 1984. The point being..... even if I gave you the description of the 2066 error, it would mean very little to you. It doesn't help.
It's more important to know which model you have, what OS (Operating System) you are running and what you were doing or what program you are running when the fault occurs!
Problems like your having do crop up, especially on Laptops because the internal hard drive gets bumped and corrupts data.
Depending on what data gets corrupted as to what the Error is.
Bottom line is, the machine needs some service about every 1-2 years to eliminate problems creeping in.
But.... You have a Mac.... So It's pretty straight forward really!
I have been using the following method for years.... SO.....
The best advice I could give you is....
Purchase an external 3.5" Hard Drive.(more robust than 2.5" pocket drives) About 1 TerraByte should do.
If you have a FireWire Port on your Mac then get a Hard Drive with a FireWire connector on the back... its faster,
Otherwise use the USB Port. (USB 3 Better)
Use the DiskUtility Program to Format the External Drive to Mac OS Extended (Journaled)...... Name the Drive something like "External Drive"........Now its ready for use.
Go on-line and download CCC (Carbon Copy Cloner)
(www.bombich.com/download.html)
Use this to make a Clone of your current Internal Hard Drive (Source in ccc) to the external Hard drive (Destination in ccc) This will take some time depending on size & content of your internal drive. Fifteen minutes to an hour.
Once completed, you should prove that the Clone is good by BOOTING from it. Restart & hold OPTION KEY DOWN & choose your new external drive. Once booted from external "Clone" you know for sure that the clone is a fully functional copy of your internal hard drive. Change the Desktop Picture in System Preferences so that it's different to your existing system. This is to avoid getting mixed up between Booted Systems (clones look the same)
The System Preferences / Startup Disk is also a useful tool here.
Now that you have a fully functional working bootable copy ("Clone") of your hard drive, you are SAFE from loosing any of your personal data. I make a new clone every few months to be Safe.
Now..... To rid yourself of all bugs & errors & faults and defragment your hard drive & update to a better (newer) version of the OS
ALL IN ONE HIT. and end up with a clean computer just like you originally bought. All you have to do is wipe your internal hard drive of everything. That is...ReFormat it with Disk Utility
(external drive unplugged for safety).
Then re INSTALL (takes about 20 minutes) a new clean (updated version) of the OSX. This is now free from Apple Downloads. e.g. OSX 9.1.2 (Maverics)
Then you can do one of 2 things.
Re enter all your details & passwords & Apple ID & Network details when prompted after re booting the new installed OSX OR
Choose Migration Assistant to put all of your stuff back in place like it was before you started. This usually works fine BUT it can put back faulty Apps etc that were causing problems before, so be choosy in what you put back (it allows you to select items)
Obviously it would be wise to have already downloaded the newest OSX for your Mac first. And even do a practice install on the external drive to see how the install process works.
FOR EXAMPLE
You could partition your new External Hard Drive into 2 Partitions of say 500GB each. One for your "CLONE" and one to experiment with the Install OSX Process.
You could even set up the New External Hard Drive with the New OSX e.g. OSX 9.1.2 (Maverics) first then "Migrate" all your old software back on to this drive. Boot the drive & test it for faults etc. Try for a couple of days. Then Re Clone it with CCC back to your Internal Hard Drive for permanent daily use.
It's up to you.... But having an external CLONE gives you so many advantages. You are using Apple Technology and ease of use here! So it's easy to do all this. Think yourself lucky, PC People would very rarely consider doing this with Windoz because it's just too difficult!
Good Luck
Trevor

Files from a back up


You should be able to plug the external hard drive into the new computer and restore. Generally the drivers needed to access the external driver are on the external drive itself. The operating system will detect the hard drive (if it has plug-and-play services running). If the new computer fails to see the external drive, check the cable and download the driver manually from the manufacture's website. If the drive is recognized by the operating system, but you do not see a prompt to restore from the backup, you may need to locate a setup program on the external hard drive to start the restore process.

Is my external hard a plug and play?


In most computers that are encountered, devices that are plugged into the USB ports are "plug & play" capable. There are numerous scenarios that can turn this function off inadvertantly such as a virus, data corruption or driver changes. In order to fix the issue and make an external device, such as a Western Digital Passport Elite hard drive "plug & play" capable, a user will have to make a few system changes. Click "Start" and "Run," then type gpedit.msc Click on "Administrative Templates," from the tree then click on the "System" folder. Double click on "Turn off Autoplay." Select the "Disabled" option and ensure it applies to all drives. Hope this helps,

All you need to do to backup the files on your old hard drive is by using a Hard Drive Docking Station. you can take your hard drive to a local store and ask for a docking station that would fit on your hard drive, the docking station is like a device the you can connect to your computer using a USB cable.
Once you have it, your old hard drive will just function as an external storage device.

Want to replace 80Gb HDD with a bigger one. How? Do I have to copy everything from the original one to the new one before actually replacing it? how?


Hi there,
Before you change the 80 GB Hard Drive you can take the backup of your hard drive to the External Hard Drive or if you have any sata case so you put your new hard Drive in the sata case and make 2-3 partitions in the new drive and copy your data in the new hard drive except in first partition which will be primary C Drive for your laptop and will replace data when you install windows in it. after the windows is installed and your data is verified in your new hard drive you can clear your old hard Drive or use it as an External Hard Drive (as you like )
2nd thing which is more safer and reliable is that you make backup CD/DVDs for your data before proceed to formatting or even changing hard drives, it will be very useful and helpful for any unforeseen data loss
if you require more assistance regarding this feel free to reply to this post

MY PC WONT ALLOW MY EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE TO LOAD AND CANT LOCATE THE DRIVERS


If you are using Windows 98 SP2 or newer support for the external HD is built in. Installing drives shouldn't be necessary, just Plug & Play.

While it is possible the OS has become corrupted the most likely reason is a bad hard drive controller chip on the drive itself.

If very recently purchased I'd take it back to the seller and ask for an exchange. If that isn't possible, if the drive is still under warranty I'd send it back to the manufacturer for replacement. Look them up via Google and get an RMA # from their support staff first.
