I have had the EMperor ROTMK for years. I just finsihed the whole shop game in windows 10 having reinstalled it for old time's sake. I am keen for more adventures and sought to download some custom scenarios.

But i canot run the patch 1010 needed for these. I get a catastrophic failure message with "an installation support file could not be installed."

I know i have installed this patch once before, but now I run windows 10 and in my old age my memory is not what it was.

Help, anyone?

If you don't find a solution you can get the game pretty cheap and legally DRM free on
Emperor ROTMK on

The Galaxy program they offer is nice to have as it makes it easier to download and update/maintain the games they sell. Games can be run through Galaxy but also by simply making a shortcut to the game's exe file on the desktop thereby circumventing Galaxy.

Sorry to hear this, Steve. This is one reason I still have Win 7 on my main PC.

As PCDania stated, perhaps buying the game from GOG is the best solution. It's inexpensive, and it comes with the patch already applied.
