Installing on Windows 8

Postby ned1 » Sun Aug 02, 2015 7:06 pm

Hi, I've downloaded the installer, and set the compatibility mode to Windwos XP (service pack 2) and tried it in Vista. No matter what I do, the game gives me this error when I try to install:

Unsupported 16 bit application

The program or feature "\??\E:\SETUP.exe" cannot start or run due to incompatibility with
64 bit versions of Windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64 bit Windows
Compatible version is available.

I don't think Sierra is even in business anymore and there's no way anybody there could provide me with a 64 bit compatible version! So of course I turn on reduced color to 16 bit in settings, but no matter what I try I always get the same error. I have the original CDs in perfect condition too! Please help me with this issue. This is probably my favorite game and I can't wait to play it again.

Stick CD1 in your drive and run the MSI file you downloaded from here, not the original setup.

Ok, I've done that, how do I launch it? The launch option on the autorun file is still grayed out.

You do not use the original installer at all. Close that out. just double click the MSI file that you downloaded.
