    Deus Ex not working

    Hi everyone, the first time I got my Windows Vista latop, I installed Deus Ex and it worked, I then uninstalled it. A few months later, I reinstalled it and found it didn't work anymore, due to the viktoria error. I know the error is about the graphics card, but if I had it installed before and it worked, why doesn't it work now, and how can I fix it?


    Thnx!

    Thumbs Down Vista Sucks

    I have had DX problems on my Windows Vista Computer.

    You need to successfully install a fully functional copy of DX on a different computer, most likely an XP one. Back-up the entire DeusEx Directory from your C: Drive onto external media (i.e., external HDD, CD, or DVD). Then, copy the entire directory onto your new Computer's C: Drive. DX will work now, at least this worked for me. You may have to change the CdPath lines.

    First, open the DeusEx.ini file at C:\DeusEx\System.

    Go to line:

    [Engine.Engine]
    ...
    CdPath=D:

    You need to set CdPath to whatever drive letter your CDROM is. Mine is 'D:'.

    Also, open Default.ini at C:\DeusEx\System.

    Go to line:

    [Engine.Engine]
    ...
    CdPath=D:

    Change the CdPath here also.


    Luckily, I backed-up my entire DeusEx Directory from my old XP computer, on which DX worked fine. I recommend that you all do this when you get DX to work properly.
