Vista 64 install game dark reign 2?

At any installed this game? I get error each time declaring bad necessary version 32v 64v try xp compatibility mode what big game played in the old system with the xp operating system
any help would be great.

Hello Dave_67,

Thank you for posting.  You get this error is because the game has a 16-bit installation program to install the game.  On Vista 64-bit, 16-bit applications are blocked.  The only way to get them to run is to is to have administrator rights, and run the installer game itself in compatibility mode.  I recommend the compatibility mode for Windows 2000, given the age of the game Dark reign 2.  I know this only because I got the same error when I tried to install a monopoly very old-fashioned.  I had to run the installer in compatibility mode in the oder to install and run the game.

Please let me know if this helps you. Zack

  • Cannot install dark reign 2 on Vista 64 Home Premium

    I dug up dark reign 2, a game that I used to love, some boxes while I was moving, and even if I tried to run the file setup.exe in compatibility mode it never starts the installation. It just says: it opens the installation wizard to install to help me with the rest of the installation procedure, but which never ends. Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong here? I know it's an old game, but I was hoping to play again now since I found it.


    The installation will not work because dark reign 2 is a set of 16 bits and would require 16-bit setup install the game. 16-bit applications on 64-bit operating system, are blocked.


    Try to install the game in Windows 2000 compatibility mode and check.

  • How can I activate dark reign 2?

    Hi ggrifi,
    one) that you get an error message with a specific error code?
    (b) what is your Oeprating system?

    However, if you read the post above, the user has mentioned that it functioned very well under Windows XP, although it has not declared the service pack.

  • No sound on Vista after installing SP1/SP2 with Realtek


    I encountered a strange problem on the computer of my parents-in-law office. After an installation of SP1 (and later SP2) no sound stereo speakers that is connected to the computer to an outlet.

    The computer is an Acer Aspire T180 with a built-in audio device Realtek HD (5.1, but the connected speakers are two standard PC speakers), and the operating system is Vista. Before installing SP1, the sound was working properly, and absolutely no software or hardware changes have been completed.

    My troubleshooting so far include:

    -Tested with a helmet and another pair of speakers that I know works

    -I have obviously checked that nothing is cut in all available parameters, or speakers

    -Tried each input/output on the back of the computer, as well as on the front

    -Checked in "output devices" that the speakers are connected and checked by default device

    -Tried the two codecs/drivers available here:

    -Tried the drivers of avaiable supplied directly from Realtek:

    -Uninstalled Realtek everything (both in the Device Manager and programs) and let Vista automatically install the original drivers

    -Disabled the 'digital output device (s/PDIF)"which is in the list of devices in output/game

    -Unchecked the 'detect connection on the front"in Realtek audio manager program

    -In addition, SP2 has been installed, which did not help. In addition, I tried every setting available, uninstalled/installed and so on. During music playback (or test tones Realtek or Windows sounds) all is apparently looking for OK with indicators of volume, jumping up and down, but everything is quiet.

    So I'm out of ideas and cannot understand this. I am very grateful for any help and advice. Thank you!

    1. have you made changes on the computer before this problem?
    2 are all installed games from EA sports?

    Follow the suggestions given by David. F December 9, 2011.

    Follow these methods mentioned below and check.
    Method 1:  Run the game as administrator and check.
    To run an application as an administrator, you can right click on the games (icon) and click on "Run as Administrator year."

    Method 2: you can try to run the game after placing the computer in a clean boot state and check.
    It is possible that some third-party programs installed on the computer is causing the problem.
    I suggest that you perform a clean boot and check.
    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows Vista by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.
    Note: After a repair, place the computer to start in normal mode after the article itself.
    If the problem is specific to EA games, I suggest you to send your query to the EA sports forum.

  • Can satellite L300-29V - I roll back to Vista after installing XP?

    Simple question: assuming I made the recovery discs, is it possible to erase Vista, install XP and then re install Vista using recovery disks? The laptop is a Satellite L300-29V.

    A big thank you in advance I can see no clear answer elsewhere.


    If you created the recovery disc, you can do what you want. Why? Very simple: the recovery disk contains an image of the factory settings. This means that the version of Vista pre-installed with all the drivers and tools. It is him you even have started the laptop, the first time.

    You can install XP, Linux or whatever you want. Demarrer start from the recovery disk, follow the instructions on the screen and you go back to Vista.

    I hope this information is useful for you.

  • Blue screen after Windows Vista SP2 installed on my TouchSmart IQ770

    All, I came across this thread, after having the same problem (constant BSOD after Vista SP2) installed.  The fix referenced by MS that contains a placeholder file.  However, this most recent patch contains even more recent versions of all the files in question.

    For this installation, I went to safe mode and disabled the wireless network card.  I copied the fix of a usbstick on the desktop.  After the reboot of the machine was stable enough to install this fix (before it would break before the fix might get installed).  After the restart, yet once again, I have reactivated the wireless card.

    The system seems to be stable again (its place for over an hour now, the previous record was 5 minutes approximately from SP2)

    I hope this helps someone to another Google search for Vista SP2 IQ770 BSOD USB

  • Cannot install Games for Windows Live

    I need to install Games for Windows Live to play several games on this laptop.

    When I run gfwlivesetup, all downloads very well and gets to the point where it installs GFWL and I get the following error every time:

    "An error occurred during the installation of assembly ' Microsoft.VC90.CRT, version ="9.0.21022.8", publicKeyToken ="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b"processorArchitecture ="x 86", type ="win32 "'. See Help and Support for more information. »

    Looking through several log files, I discovered the error to be (0x8007078f) code that relates to, "connection failed: the machine you log on is protected by an authentication firewall." The specified account is not allowed to authenticate on the machine. »

    So two things come to mind. The account is authenticated and firewall. Well, my account is an administrator account and right click on gfwlivesetup and choose "run as Administrator" does not change a thing. Well, screw the router, I just take the right out of my router modem jack and plug rather the ethernet of my laptop, without going through all the ports that can be blocked. The only firewall that is up and running (the only one installed) is the MS OS firewall, so let's just turn this baby off and still the same error.

    So if we ignore all the error code (0x8007078f) completely, then we can treat the error originally presented... I see basically: processorArchitecture = "x 86", type = "win32".

    Well, I'm running a Windows 7 64 - Bit, and my processor is a Core i7-740... I am out of the resources here. I have seen many people having the same problem or similar (Google reveals a lot). So if someone is willing to stick with me throughout this, I intend to see resolved (at least for me). I only pray that as I did not reinstall Win 7 or make repairs. They do not understand all of these DVDs with the laptop.

    Thanks in advance,

    Jimmi G

  • Problems with trying to install games

    I get a message when I try to install Office blades, Freestyle BMX etc., the Message says that I can't install games with Windows 7 I need Windows9x.

    Some old games will install and run, some will not.

    You can try to run the program to install game in W95 compatibility mode and then run the game itself (assuming that you can install it) in W95 compatibility mode. Who can help.

    And have a read of this

    It may also depend on your version of windows, i.e. with stuff really old (old 16-bit progs) of what Ive read, you are more likely to eventually succeed with 32-bit W7 with W7 64 - bit.
