Default Wizardry 8 on Vista 32 bit - NO WORKY

March 11th, 2013, 08:06
Sometimes the autorun works on it's own, sometimes i have to explore the cd and go to it myself - either way, it opens up the initial install window, and I can select either install or exit. I select install - the mouse pointer indicates my computer is working on something, and then nothing happens. Right click the autorun and run as admin - same result. Copy disk 1's contents to a desktop folder and try it from there - same result. Run the 3d detector thing first, then the autorun - same result. Try 3 different compatability modes, xpsp2, 2000, and win98 - same result x3.

What do?

Seems that the problem is cd-check software (DRM basically) that ain't compatible with Vista.

You didn't hear it from me, but check a suggestion posted here by Bladedog:

Wizardry 8 really needs to end up on GOG along with the rest of the series.

Thanks for digging that up, but unfortunately my problem doesn't even allow me to install the game to begin with.
