Topic Subject: Trouble installing Pharaoh and Cleopatra on new PC with Win XP pro.
posted 08-08-04 16:54 ET (US)   
Hi, I'm back after some years, and I really hope someone can help me.
After having played these 2 great games for 3-4 years on the old comp., I bought a new one, and started again from scratch. After installing (all went fine) Pharaoh and playing for a few days I would install Cleo as well, but now none of these games are working. When installing Cleo I got the message that Pharaoh should be installed first. Well, I install pharaoh again and then Cleo.
then, after finish the installation the game was: "unable to load FT-Thunk(kernel32.dll)". Then I copy my kernel32.dll from system32 to system in windows. I do not know what FT-Thunk is, I do not have it on the old pc. It didn't work either. I delete the lot and started on a new installation, first Pharaoh, then Cleo, but now comes a new error-message:
"Error during installation:
Media name: data
Component: executable
File Group: executable
File C:\Sierra\Pharaoh\Data\maus0_2b.sg3
Error number: -115 (refer to online help)."

I have read back in this group and read the troubles other have had, but it's not the same errors.
I've installed the cleo update, which I also had on the old comp.
I have tried with and without the possibility of getting the games to run in comptability with Win 95, it doesn't make any difference.
Will it be better to buy newer versions of the games?
Regarding closing all other programs running, I,m not certain what I have to close. Win XP pro is quite new to me, it was easier on the old one, just ctrl-alt-del, and only Explorer and Systray were running when I started the game.
The strange thing is that Pharaoh was working, until I installed Cleopatra, but now ...., I'm just a little bit tired of it.
Please can anyone help? I would be so happy.
Yours ever
Tove

Thought you said you just installed Pharaoh and Cleopatra???

Congrats, and happy gaming.

Have you seen the new citybuilder: Children of the Nile?
