American Girls Dress Designer Popup Crash Fix 1.0

Sign in to follow this  

About This File

The American Girls Dress Designer was originally intended to be run on Windows 95, 98 and ME. At the time, NT was a business-grade operating system, and supporting an OS few families would even bother owning would add up to development costs. The patch fixes an issue with Dress Desginer that prevented popup windows from being displayed ingame.

 

Before the fix:

After applying the patch:

Made this mostly to aid doll collectors and families in getting this game to run on modern operating systems, in response to numerous complaints on Amazon and elsewhere, with at least one going so far as to throwing their copy in the bin. :/

      On Windows 8 or newer systems, the game's menu turns upside down or just black and white; because, the codecs of the the original video files don't working very well on these newer system. You can see the problem on the 'before.jpg' image, and the fixed menu 'after.jpg' the applied fix.
      To fix this unpleasant thing, just download and extract the content of the archive into the game's folder. The password for the archive is pcgw.

      From about 1995 to 1998 it was common practice for setup programs to launch using a Windows 3.1 16-bit loader stub. This gave installers the ability to package multiple binaries for Win16, Win32s, Win32, and Windows NT for Alpha CPUs. At the time it was a reasonable thing to do since all of these platforms could execute 16-Bit Windows 3.1 applications.

      Today, neither ReactOS nor 64-bit Microsoft Windows implement the ability to run 16-bit Windows 3.1 applications. The result is that there are many, many 32-bit programs that would run fine on these OSes, but are prevented from installing.
      Download the InstallShield 3 Engine without Windows/Wine:

      View the version properties of the Setup Launcher, usually called SETUP.EXE. (under Windows, right click, select Properties, and click the "Version" tab).

      If the setup version is 3.xx.xxx, then as a convenience, you may download the Setup Engine executable directly from here rather than manually extracting it.

      Place this file in a WRITABLE folder with the rest of your application install files and run it instead of setup.

      The original update patches for DYSNOMIA and DYSNOMIA ExBurst retrieved from 2CCP's defunct website using the Internet Archive and downloading the original files from their (still active) Google Drive links. The included readme file features details about each patch and how to use them to upgrade the original DYSNOMIA (the original Comiket 75 release) to DYSNOMIA ExBurst or to update the latter from a later re-release (e.g. DLsite, the Comiket 77 release). These patches are uploaded for posterity and provided as-is.
