Could use some ideas getting an old game running

Recommended Posts

I have every version from 2005 to 2015 installed, I believe I just installed them all until the games would play, but I do remember one time i uninstalled the older versions because I tought newer was better and I started having problems with my older games, so now when I install any game if it ask's to install visual c I always say yes even if I already have it.

I don't think it asked about c++ but i did try letting it install x 8.1 when it asked

I really do not know why it worked but the version of  it you need would most likely be somewhere in the install files of the game.

I'll take a look.

I installed nothing extra to get OpenMW to work.  Try again maybe?  It's SUPER fast and efficient compared to the original Morrowind engine.

I've tried it a number of times. Even tried installing to different directory to see if that would help. I did some searching and others had the same issue and ended up having to use a config file from somebody else. I may try it on my ancient rog laptop to see it it will work Edited by whitefiretiger
