Hello,

I found this game Revolution from 2002 from Activision Value and Fun Labs.  When I attempt to install it on Windows 10, the setup file seems to run in the background, but doesn't actually lead to an installation.  There is a launcher.exe file which pulls up gui and you can choose "setup" from there, but again, the setup file just runs in the background.

I've attempted to launch both files with compatibility turned off, set to windows 95, windows 98 and XP.  I've attempted to disable fullscreen optimizations and in reduced color mode with also running it as administrator on Windows 10, but it will not work.

If anyone can offer insight on how I can make this happen, I would greatly appreciate it.cap1.thumb.png.61babb5e85616c0fe1a167f8937ffc32.png

Sorry, don't know what to tell you - installer runs fine on my Windows 10 installation (no compatibility enabled or anything like this).

Well I found the issue.  I found a post on reddit that talked about right clicking the setup file in task manager on the details tab and selecting "analyze wait chain" and when I did that, it showed an instance of nvcontainer.exe was blocking it.  So I ended that process and boom, setup worked fine.

      This is a copy of the my comment on the DX:MD page and it was suggested to seek support here as well. I would like to know is there is a way to get 32:9 (5120x1440) to work without black bars? I tried editing the executable with HxD and also tried search for the aspect ratio with cheatengine to adjust the known values but nothing seems to work.
      Furthermore, why does the article show green for ultrawide, even though it doesn't work?

      I have the screenshots for all the settings on Space Hulk Ascension. These are cropped and ready to go. But the upload form says I can't upload them. How can I add these, a search of this forum provides 0 relevant results. Email is verified, please advise.

      Hey!
      I found a fix regarding a specific GTA V crash, but I don't know how to add it to its page... I've never edited a Wiki page...
      Maybe someone could add it? That way we can forget about tutoring me about this :\

      Hi i'm posting here as i couldn't think of a much better place tio ask these questions. Back in 2011 i noticwed some odd issues when trying to play a pirated version of minecraft which i borowed from a friend to see if my at the time crappy laptop would run it resaonablely before the purchase of the full game, in that i could only move my character by holding down either control or shift i could interact with my mouse fine but the use of my keyboard was only possible when i was holding down either of these keys as well natural i put it down to a bad cracked copy and put it asiede then when the humble bundle came outin may 2012 i took advantage of the deal and got some classics to add to my collection  that would still run on a terrible laptop but after i had launched limbo i noticed the issues that were present in minecraft srtill existed in this legitimate steam game i then tried to launch braid and portal( a game i had before the issue exsited) and found that the issue was prevalent in all games so i decied to persevere and just play my way through limbo and after that laptops motherboard failed and i was put onto the familes (posibably worse than my old laptop) windows 8 laptop i thought the issue was over so i just went about everything fine. However when i reinstalled portal 2 adding it into m my steam library from m old laptops harddrive onto my laptop last month after playing a lot of civ 5 until then i noticed the issue had returened i fixed for portal 2 by pluging in my xbox 360 controller into my laptop. Then i was looking through gog today to see if anything interesting was on sale and i saw theif gold eddition was their for $2.50 so thought it was well worth it but after downloading and installing it i discovered the issue was still present and i can't relly just plug a controller in to fix it this time as the game has no native controller support i've been looking into buying a proper pc for a while but refuse to until this issue is resolved does anyone know why this issue might have happened and if there is anyway to fix it. As you can see the issue is present in notjust steam games but individual titles
       
      sorry for poor spelling grammar or for rambilling i didn't post this in the troubleshooting subforrum because it would not allow me i will happily provide any additional infomation.
