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!

HI,
The thing is '.dll' type files are a lot of important to run any application and I think that the disk dont have it already in it so there might be a disk problem or this could be because its too old because modern versions of windows like vista, 7 or xp cannot play old games or apps. Your pc probably could play any of the modern games.
Best regards

Zoombini's Logical Journey won't start up


If the program produces an error right after hitting the Play button, I had success by launching the file Zoombinis Logical Journey.exe in compatability mode using Window 98 / ME and 640 x 480 resolution. The shortcut that is created during install points to TLCRUN.EXE which was what caused my error.

Window messenger runing without asking password


First off 2 questions,
Which operating system are you using, and which brand of computer.

Secondly, Windows messenger and MSN messenger are two different programs and hopefully the information below will help sort out which is which.
On Windows XP and presumably later, "Windows Messenger" is another instant messaging client, very much like MSN Messenger. It is installed when you install Windows XP and runs only on Windows XP. (The updated Windows Messenger 5.0 also runs on Windows 2000 and can be downloaded here).
While Windows Messenger and MSN Messenger look very similar, they in fact are two separate applications. The good news is that either can be used to access the same .NET Messaging Service contacts. That's the default instant messaging service for both and the one you'll use on the internet. What that really means is that if all you're doing is instant messaging your friends and family on the internet, it doesn't matter which one you use and changing from one to the other is not a problem.
Unfortunately, as I said, they are two different programs. They have slightly different feature sets and release on different schedules. In particular, Windows Messenger is more tightly integrated with applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Outlook Express, or the Remote Assistance feature of Windows XP. The differences and the confusion don't end there, though. Microsoft has a Knowledgebase article that touches on more of the technical differences and provides instructions for installing and running both on the same machine. The good news is that most likely you'll never need to know how or why you would want to.
But sadly, the confusion does not end there. There is yet another Windows "Messenger".
On Windows 2000 and Windows XP there is a service called "Messenger". It's unfortunately often referred to as the "Windows Messenger" that is used to present what can best be called "network messages" to a machine's user. This is not an instant messaging application, but rather software that runs in the background listening for incoming messages and popping up a very simple box containing the message when one arrives. The most common example might be in a corporate environment when you send a document to a network printer. The messenger service handles the pop-up message that the printer sends back when it has finished.
Unfortunately the Messenger Service has been exploited by spammers to pop-up unwanted advertising messages on unprotected machines on the internet. The average user has absolutely no need for the Windows Messenger Service and thus it can safely be turned off. To do so, go to Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Services & Applications -> Services. Double click "Messenger" and set the "Startup Type" to Disabled. You can also "Stop" the service at that same dialog. (You can also grab a copy of 10 Quick Steps to Stopping Pop-Up Ads for help stopping this and other pop-up annoyances.)
Think we're done? Guess again. There's one more instant messaging client I want to briefly mention.
If you play certain games on MSN's Gaming Zone, you may also be presented with a small application called "ZoneFriends". Yes, you guessed it, it's yet another instant messaging application. It's specifically for chatting among the folks you're playing your online games with.
Thankfully though, the word "Messenger" is nowhere to be seen.
