SOURCE: i have installed the game

Hi lady_mammoth,

For this type of error, you will need to modify the game's desktop icon that you run under elevated privileges. To do this, please follow the steps below.

1. Right click the icon and select Properties.

2. Select the Compatibility tab.

3. Now check the Run as an administrator checkbox.

4. Before clicking OK, determine if you need to set this elevated privilege for other users.

5. If you have other users that will be using the game, at the bottom click the Change settings for all users button. A new dialogue will popup with changes for all users.

6. Check the Run as an administrator checkbox. You can now OK, OK out of the Properties dialogue.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have windows 7 and i want to install Corral Club. I changed the compatibility to windows xp service pack2 . the install wizard says stalling, but then it goes away again and nothing happens


I have seen others with this same issue. Apparently you have to run the installation as an administrator. Simply right-click the setup icon and select run as administrator.

Running Warlords 2/3 on Vista or Windows 7


After noticing a sharp increase in request for help on the matter I decided to write this.

These are the most common problems with both Warlords games.

Problems:

1. Wont install on either OS
2. Installs but wont run.
3. Installs, runs, but doesn't display properly

Solutions:

1. Is your OS 64-bit? then your fresh out of luck as neither game is designed to run on a 64bit system and if it does run, is probably going to be highly unstable.
If not then you could try one or all of the following;
-Right-click the setup and run as administrator
-change the compatibility to XP or Windows 2000
-Copy the entire CD's contents to a folder on the desktop then run the setup.
-All of the above at once.

2. Once again you can try all the above instead applying them to the shortcut or exe for the game. You should as a matter of course ensure that your drivers are up to date if you have problems running the game.

3. If you get around the above two problems and run the game only to find that graphics are missing (generally the biggest problem), then there is only two real solutions to the problem:
-1: Try reinstalling the game, or use a friends copy.
-2: run the Direct X setup off the Warlords Cd, as this contains Direct X files designed for games run on this engine.

Hopefully the above helps someone to make one of these awesome games run.

Over and out,

How To Find Windows 7 Administrator Password


Windows 7 administrator password is the password to any account that's setup to access administrator level functions in Windows 7.
There doesn't actually have to be an "Administrator" user account. What you need is the password to any account that can act as an administrator.
You will need to take a few times to get this password. You may need an administrator login password in Windows 7 if you're trying to run certain types of programs or access certain Windows 7 recovery tools.
Follow the steps below to efficiently find the administrator login password in Windows 7!
Difficulty: Average
Time Required: Finding the password to an admin user may take minutes up to hours depending on the situation
Here's step by step guide:
  1. Try leaving the password blank. If there is actually an Administrator account, the password may not exist at all!
    Just press Enter without typing anything when the logon asked for it.
  2. Enter the password to your account. Often times, depending on how Windows 7 was setup on your computer, the primary user account will also be an administrator user account.
  3. Try to remember administrator login password. As I mentioned in the last step, your account might be an administrator account, especially if you installed Windows 7 on your computer yourself.
    If that's true, but you've forgotten your password, you might be able to make really good guesses at what the administrator password might be.
  4. Have another user enter his or her credentials. If there are other users that have accounts on your Windows 7 computer, one of them may be setup with administrator access.
    If this is true, have the other user designate you as an administrator as well.
  5. Recover the administrator password using a Windows password recovery tool. You may be able to recover or reset an administrator password with one of these free tools.
    Note: Some password recovery tools on the list I have in connection with the above change and the ability to set user accounts in Windows 7 Administrator account. This can be useful if you know the password, but it is not an administrator account.
  6. Perform a clean install of Windows 7. This is a last resort option. This type of installation will completely remove Windows 7 from your PC and install it again from scratch.
    If you're just curious about the administrator password, I would not recommend this resort. However, if you need an administrator password to access the operating system of diagnosis and this is your last effort to save the computer running a clean install will work.
    Keep in mind that it is a time consuming process due to the fact that all of your data must be backed up and then later restored.

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!

Windows7 will not accept my Millennium Game Pack


It may or may not work, but try installing as Administrator and setting the program's EXE into "Compatability Mode for XP SP2", and also, running as Administrator.
Windows 7 just doesn't want to support any software/hardware over like a year old... Drivers are a HUGE issue. Especially for older stuff. Compatability Mode is one way round it but not always.

Also you will have to set to OFF digital Driver signing at bootup press F8, and at the bottom you will see driver signing.... EVERY TIME you boot you MUST set this OFF, or it will simply not work, thats if it does install anyway. You MUST have it OFF to install as well.
