PostSubject: The Answer To Running The Game With Vista   Thu Jul 03, 2008 10:09 am

Here is the tutorial that helped me resume my gameplay on the new computer! Everyone with problems playing this game on vista, CHECK THIS OUT!!!


Tutorial By Godlord

Running Eclipse on Windows Vista

Introduction

Welcome to a fresh tutorial of me, Godlord. In this tutorial I am going to show you how you do get Eclipse running on Windows Vista. Yes, you\'ve heard it Vista. With this tutorial you\'re also able to run a lot of other programs which wouldn\'t have ran before. So fasten your seatbelt and let\'s start.


Requirements

For this tutorial you need of course Windows Vista but it\'s also required to be logged in as an Administrator. If you aren\'t an administrator then you won\'t be able to do this tutorial so first get yourself logged in as an administrator.


User Account Control

So, I am logged in as an administrator, so what now? We are now going to disable the whole user account control. This thing enhances security on Windows Vista but this also messes with a lot of programs. Thereby were going to put it off. UAC or not a computer can always get broken.

We\'re going to disable the UAC. Open the control panel and type \"UAC\" in the search box. The first result you\'ll normally get returned by the search function will be normally \"User Accounts - Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off.\". Click on it and the UAC window will open. De-select the option \"Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer\" and press the O.K. button. Windows Vista will now request to restart your PC, restart it. After Vista has started up the UAC should be disabled.

Although Microsoft doesn\'t suggest this, you should turn it off if you want to run a lot of programs. You can get a lot of other programs to secure your system instead.


Getting the missing libraries

Microsoft removed DirectX 7 and 8 for Visual Basic from the System32 directory or SysWOW64 on 64-bit. You can simply download DirectX 7 for Visual Basic and DirectX 8 for Visual Basic from my website. If you have downloaded them then you should put them in \"C:\\WINDOWS\\System32\" on Windows Vista x32 or \"C:\\WINDOWS\\SysWOW64\\\" on Windows Vista x64. If you aren\'t sure which version you have then check if you have the \"SysWOW64\" folder in \"C:\\WINDOWS\" if not then you have x32 else you will have x64. (Or some idiot made that folder there to have a few jokes with you.).

Now you can register the two DLL files. You can do this by typing:

Code:

cd C:\\WINDOWS\\System32\\
regsvr32 dx7vb.dll
regsvr32 dx8vb.dll

In a console, \"cd C:\\WINDOWS\\SysWOW64\\\" for 64-bit Vista .

Or you can just open one DLL with... And then you select \"C:\\WINDOWS\\System32\\Regsvr32\" as the program, remember SysWOW64 on Vista 64-bit. Then you tick the box to always open it with that. Then you can just click on the other DLL and you have registered both DLL files.


Done

Wow that was not that hard. You can now run Eclipse on Vista and probably a lot of other programs too . Enjoy it.


To do

- Adding screenshots, I will be making them later on ...


Regards, Godlord.

Yes, I checked the log on the server and you had just logged on when I got down to my computer. For the first one, try downloading the most recent version of ActiveX from Microsoft. The second one has no solution. I have heard that it goes away after a while. I really don't know why it occurs.

I realize. I can't find exactly what you are looking for. All they have are DirectX patches and things that don't have anything to do with it. No specific DirectX itself.

Oh yes, ActiveX. I have really no idea where to download ActiveX itself. Maybe a .ocx file is bad.

We're not talking about the patch anymore. We're talking about ActiveX/DirectX
