    Have you not been able to install the game at all? Sorry, I couldn't understand from your post if you had managed to install the game, or if it was just the patch you installed. You should only install the patch after the game itself has been installed.

    If you haven't managed to install the game from the game CD, try running the installer from the disc itself, instead of from the autorun menu. Go into My Computer and right-click on the drive with your TR4 disc in it and choose Open. Look for a file called Setup.exe (or just "setup") and double-click on it. That should launch the installer.

    How to Install Patch For TR4

    I am only semi computer literate and I'm sick of the very long loading times for TR4 . I've tried using the multipatch but I can't make it work. Could someone please explain in detail how to install the patch and actually make it work as I think it's probably me.

    Thanks,
    Croft.

    P.S. Hope I've posted this in the right place.

    It's ok, I've done it!

    Problems Running TR1 on XP

    I'm guessing people are sick of this subject and I have read other solutions but they have not helped. Here's my prob.

    I'm running XP Service pack 3 on a laptop. I have been able to sucessfully install and run TR1 before using a previously bought TR1 disc (Premier Collection with the Unfinished Business pack). I have since lost that and rebought it in a 6-disc boxset of Tr's 1-6. I'm installing TR1 using the advanced Installer and Glidos / VDMSound. It installs ok but when I come to play the game it gets as far as displaying the DOS4GW and then hangs. I have tried using dgvoodoo and got the same results. I have even tried running it in DOSBOX and got the same results but it also mentioned a "General Protection Fault".

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Lee.

    This might help.

    EDIT: Following those, I get up to the stage where the game will run, and is technically playable, but Lara (and other objects) won't be displayed because some reason or other they are being drawn on top of. I remember I'd managed to get it showing Lara, by fiddling with the setup options for dgVoodoo. (XP SP2, btw).

    EDIT:

    A new installer that can also help with installing TR1 on XP/Vista.

    do you use Windows Vista of XP?

    I don't really know what to ask, sorry. When I get time, I want to check for you if TR4 works on my pc

    hmm. Maybe the demo isn't installed with the patched installer or something, and the full game is.

    Oh.This problem consists in incompatibility of programs. Press on a label of game by the right button and choose compatibility of programs. Put all ticks and all. At me too such was..

    I believe they already tried that

    I have had the same error saying the TR4 needs to close. Have you updated your Video drivers that sometimes helps.
