i don't have k-lite... can't uninstall...


Something strange:

After installation, the game wants to install a codec package. after installation, the setup tells, that this package is not compatible with my windows version. i found this package on the microsoft hp too, and there is written, that this version is for windows xp professional too. but i always get the message, that this package is not compatible...

Have you searched for a compatible version of the codecs OR checked to see if the version of Vista already has those preinstalled?

- I take it you have a version of Vista.

sorry, didn´t mention, that i have xp pro sp2. if I run the videos in mediaplayer, they run fine.... i checked the videos with gspot. it reports, that i have 2 codecs installed, that support this file.

If you have the Tarr install CD/files handy can you see if you can find the installation executable for the codes package. Im fairly sure it should be seperate from the game install.

If you can find it, run it and post the exact error you are getting, the exact syntax pls. Dont post more than a few lines though.

I will have a peek to see if you can circumvent the installation of the codecs another way. Hopefully then you can get the game running!

the setup tells:
"Diese Version der Windows Media-Technologien ist mit dieser Windows-Version nicht kompatibel. Weitere Informationen finden Sie auf der Microsoft-Website."

Means something like:
"This version of the windows media technologies is not compatible with this windows version. You can find more information on the microsoft website".

As I told: the codecs are installed. I can play the avi in the media-player. only the game always crashes if i click on "settings" or "load savegame". And it also often crashes during video playback, ingame.

This could mean that though installed the codec isnt going to work as it is supposed to, even though you can still play the vids.

The only thing I can think of is that you get a list of all the codecs that the [codec] installer that came with TARR is supposed to install. Then make sure that this matches the list that is actually installed.

I noticed while scanning the quazar forums that you have posted the same problem there. Other than waiting for official fixes there isnt much more you can do except try to find out if the codecs are installed correctly. Is there another PC in your house, work, etc that you can test the codec installation on?
