Help cannot install Falcon 4
I am a long time owner and user of Falcon 4 and do have several copies of the install CD’s, “Legitimate” copies. I am running windows 10. My problem is installation for the new BMS upgrade 4.33. I cannot get Falcon 4 to install, it just hangs in task manager. I have played with all possible compatibility settings, and have checked to run in administration mode. I have tried the lower graphic settings as well. and to no avail. I tried all the known possibilities through my years of dealing with stubborn installations and now I have no choice but to ask for help if someone may have an answer to what maybe an antiquated software to be installed on a newer OS.
Ckacres do you think the steam or GOG version would work?
Did you try installing in Safe Mode??
Plus one on the safe mode. That was the only way it installed for me.
Maybe it will sound “offensive”, but one of my VFW mates had the same problem and the solution was… waiting for the setup to start.
It took nearly 15 minutes in his case, but then it went smooth and with no further hassle.
Try this, meanwhile please notice that GOG and Steam have the Falcon Collection at around $9: I know you’ll ask yourself “why have I got to buy it if I already legitimately own it?”, my humble answer is that it’s worth to simplify one’s life as much as possible.
