Reinstalling Drakan on Windows 7

Trying it out on another computer where it is installed on, so far working great, just occasionally crashes. Thanks all, it's good to have this back online again!

Reinstalling Drakan on Windows 7

Correct about the patches. Thanks, this is a little out of my league, but worth a try if I get a chance to download again soon,

Reinstalling Drakan on Windows 7

If you do get your fixed game re uploaded, that would be a great fix for people who are wanting to get back into Drakan right away! Looks like quite a few people on the board are a bit stuck due to hardware or software issues. Thank you for posting your game,

Reinstalling Drakan on Windows 7

I don't think it was your file's AiO patch, I think it was a different one that I had already, from a while back, that was causing the trouble. Plus I did something to make the different files go into the wrong folder which messed up my game. I had to delete copies of the patch and start fresh, but ...

Reinstalling Drakan on Windows 7

One other thing: when you go to download 7-Zip extractor, which one do you need, the 32 bit or the 64 bit? I wasn't sure which one, so I got both. Also, the file for the game, when I clicked on it, resulted in a message saying that the file was too large for Google's antivirus program to scan it, so...

Reinstalling Drakan on Windows 7

I applied the AiO patch and afterward, I tried to run Drakan again and I got this message: "C:\Program Files (86) \Psygnosis\Drakan\Drakan.exe is not a valid Win32 application". I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but it stopped the game from working again,

Reinstalling Drakan on Windows 7

The trouble was the InstallSDB.bat file. I thought it was mandatory for everyone. I'm a little rusty with installation using winzip also and I'm not sure it came out right. For some reason, I ended up with files in the wrong folders, so after that I had to uninstall everything and try again with the...

Reinstalling Drakan on Windows 7

Could be. The Google file folder downloaded fine, but it was installing it where I got some error messages...I went ahead and installed the vanilla version of the game using a disk that is in better condition. It is up and running pretty well; only has crashed to windows once. I used the 444, then 4...

Re: Reinstalling Drakan on Windows 7

Anyone know what the error message "The program cannot update the installed version of Drakan: Order of the Flame because of the following reason: C:\Program Files (x86)\Psygnosis\Drakan\Dragon.rfl: unknown version." means? It's what I saw when trying to apply the 445 ++ update patch. Thanks, Peregr...

Reinstalling Drakan on Windows 7

UCCyborg, I tried downloading the link to your version of the game, that you kindly allowed. Well unfortunately, when I clicked on the link in Google, I got a message that said the file was too large for Google to scan for viruses. I tried the suggestion to download anyway. I finally got a winzip sc...

Reinstalling Drakan on Windows 7

:D Thank you for your replies! I will try to sort it out with these suggestions. It was the setup file from an old disk that is probably corrupted due to wear and tear. I was hoping the compabibility fix would work and that it doesn't need a hardware update. It also might be my machine; needs to be ...

Reinstalling Drakan on Windows 7

Hi, my question is about the Drakan game on Windows 7, I had the full game with some player made levels installed on this PC, and I uninstalled to try and get the new patch working. Now it will not reinstall on this PC; I'd appreciate help in fixing this! I keep getting a message that the installati...
