Hi guys, I just bought Darkstone after searching for it for a few years. I haven't been successful in downloading it online, so I bought it on ebay for the PC. I have windows 7 and I tryed to install the game just now and it wouldnt let me, what am i doing wrong? is there any easy solution to this problem? 

 

I saw the other post you guys made but i didnt understand how to fix the problem. Help guys!!

Okay, so I followed this guide: http://blog.nosilleg.com/2011/04/setting-up-darkstone-on-windows-7-x64.html

... and got it running but couldn't install the original patches. The Fixed Patch (http://dsdb.it-taucher.at/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=138:no-cd-for-darkstone-eu-105b&catid=37:other&Itemid=75) worked though. ...

I set the compatibility mode on the EXE file to 'Windowx XP (SP3)'. Darkstone is running fine on Windows 7 (64 Bit) and surprisingly without previous graphic glitches.

I'd supply a ZIP file but currently I've only the german languages.

I've never tried with Windows 7, but do you have XP compatibility? I would try setting it to XP mode, and make sure the EXE is set to Admin. I heard this works with another older game, so give it a try! 8)
