Here is the answer your probably looking for . The reason the start up application does not respond is that its not compatible with the system your trying to run it on. So here is the way to get it going . Go to my computer ...or look at my computer . Somewhere below you will see your cd disc of Links LS. Right click and ( open ) the cd to see all the contents . Somewhere down the line there is the the Setup or install application. right click on the setup icon , then click the ( properties ) tab. Then click the capabilities tab , then click on the capibility of what system you are running the game in ( vista ) if your running vista etc .
It should work now ,but sometimes there is a long delay when you first try it because the startup system is running checks and balances before it loads .

SOURCE: I installed my game which required two discs.

Hey,

Just to be on the safe side, did you put in the first disc like it asked you to? If you've tried both discs and it still is not working, then you have two options.

First would be to uninstall the game, and then try to reinstall it.

The other alternative is a bit more complicated but it will do the trick.

The first thing you will need to do is go to this link and download the file in the blue and bold text that says something like "no cd fix". The file will be in .rar format, so if you do not have Winrar, now would be a good time to get it from: http://rarlab.com . It's like winzip, but better.

Anyway after you get the file open, there will be a couple more inside that file. One of them will be a .nfo file. That will contain the directions for installing the fix. To open them, extract them to a folder somewhere (I usually put them on my desktop) and to read the .nfo file right click and select open with. From there, select Notepad, follow the directions, and you're done!

If you manage to follow those directions, it will enable you to play the game without having to put your disc in the drive.

Being that this can be a complicated problem, if you need any more assistance, feel free to e-mail me at:

Good Luck.

Are you running Windows Vista or 7? It says that it is designed for Windows 2000/XP. I would go into Control Panel: Add/remove programs. Uninstall the game.
Then find the executable file to install the game (assuming you downloaded it). Right click the file and select properties. Then find the tab called Compatibility and select the check box for "run this program in compatibility mode for:" then select Windows XP (SP2). then open and install the game.
After the game is installed, reboot. Once you reboot find the launcher file to start the game, again right click and do properties, make sure its set on compatibility mode for XP. that should solve it.

Microsoft Windows 98 was an operating system used on a majority of personal computers from 1998 to 2000. Because of this, there are a variety of games available to play on Windows 98, but are incompatible with later versions of Windows. If you have Windows XP or higher, you have access to a "Compatibility Mode" that allows your computer to play those games. Activating compatibility mode is a simple procedure.

Right-click the file that you usually click on when you are trying to start a game.

Select the "Properties" option in the drop-down menu.

Select the "Compatibility" tab, then check the "Windows 98" box.

Select the proper video mode for your game under "Display Settings."

Select the "Apply" button to save your settings, and select "OK."

Double-click on your game's file to begin playing the game.

the worst that could happen is that the computer may not run the program. try installing the game, your cd (assuming that's the source of the setup files for the game) should not be affected.

after you install the program try to run it as usual by double clicking the icon to run the program if it doesn't run as expected try this.
1. right click the icon you use to run the game.
2. select properties
3. select the compatibility tab and select an appropiate mode. (ex. windows xp service pack 2)

not completely sure but you may also want to try to run the installation/setup program by changing the compatibility mode so you may be able to trick the program into believing the app/game is being installed on a windows xp service pack 2 system increasing your chances to have the installation running properly.

Vista error for games


Mike,
I read that there is a patch, but like you i couldnt find it.
Here are some tips from Sierra,. I dont know if you had seen these or not.
Also you didnt say what video card you run.

If you are encountering errors, during your F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate installation process, please use the following methods in the order that they appear.

1. Make sure there are no smudges, scratches or other residue on the game DVD. If you see any smudges, try cleaning with damp soft lint free cloth (like an old T-shirt) from the inside edge to the outside edge in straight lines.

Note: Try the game installation on another pc system (if available), to determine if the disc is bad or damaged. If same issue occurs on another computer, you may need to replace the game disc.
For information regarding disk replacement, please go back to our main support page at: http://sierra.com/en/home/support/sierra_support.html

2. Try you game Installation from a secondary DVD or DVD-RW drive if available.

3. We advise you to have Administrator privileges to properly install and run games on your Windows OS.
If you have administrator rights, and wish to give a user administrator rights, you can do this in the Users option of your Windows Control Panel.

4. Temporarily disable programs from running at system start-up, which in some cases could prevent game installation.
Use the Selective Startup option in MSCONFIG.
Go to your Start then select Run(if you don't see Run, Hold down the Windows key, and then press the R key on your keyboard to invoke the Run dialog box) In the Open: box type: msconfig and then press the Enter key.
When the menu appears, click on the General tab, if it is not already at the front. Under Startup Selection, select Selective Startup, and uncheck the selection Load Startup Items.
Click on Apply and then Ok/Close, and restart the system to retry the installation.

5. Locate and delete a file IsProBE.tlb from Runtime folder located in C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Professional

You can find the file by going to your My Computer icon
-Open local drive C and then Program Files
-Go into InstallShield folder then open the folder Professional and delete IsProBE.tlb then re-run the installation again

6. Check you system's manufacturer web site and see if they have any firmware driver updates for you DVD or DVD-RW drives.

7. Ensure that you have cleaned out your temporary directories. To do this, double click on My Computer, with the Right Mouse Button click on the appropriate hard drive and click on Properties with the Left Mouse Button. Click on the Disk Cleanup button ensure temporary files are checked and proceed to clean up these files.

8. Try ‘copy the contents’ method below.
Copy all DVD contents of the game into a folder on your hard drive and run the installation from that location (If you receive an overwrite prompt select Yes to all).
Note that you will need about 8 GB plus free space on the hard drive to apply this option.

See below for instructions.

-Quit all programs that are running.
-Right-click in empty are on the desktop then point to New, and then click Folder.
-Name the folder, and then press ENTER.
-Double-click on the folder that you just created.
-From the Tools menu, click Folder Options.
-Click the View tab. Under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders, and then click OK.
-Insert game DVD into your drive. Hold down the SHIFT key on your keyboard to prevent the program from starting automatically.
-Open My Computer, then right Click on game icon and left click on Open.
-Go to Edit menu at the top and click on Select All.
-Now, go to Edit again and click on Copy.
-Next step is to open the folder you created on the desktop, go to Edit menu, and then click Paste.
-This will copy the contents of the disc into the folder.

Please be patent since this may take some time. After all game contents been copied into the folder, double-click Setup.exe and then follow the on-screen instructions to install your game.

9. Ensure that your hard drive is not fragmented. To defrag your hard drive, click on START, go to PROGRAMS, go to ACCESSORIES, go to SYSTEM TOOLS, and select DISK DEFRAGMENTER, select the appropriate drive and click DEFRAGMENT. Please be aware that this process, depending on the size of the drive, may take up to and over an hour to complete.
