game won't run if I change the install dir name

Recommended Posts

I have one of the Total Classics installed and working great!  (on Windows 8)


If I copy and paste the game install directory (no other changes), the game will not run from the "pasted" directory.  Sometimes it crashes to the desktop, sometimes it complains it can't find DirectX 9 (I have DirectX 11 installed).  I can still run it from the original install directory.


Also, if I mearly change the name of the install directory, the game won't run.


Anyone know why this is?  Maybe there is something in the registry?

Did you forget what you did 2 years ago?

Hmm, that's odd. Where did you download the game from?

I own a legitimate physical CD game.  Happy to prove it if you would like me to do so.

I am just now revisiting the game after a 2 year hiatus, and i did forget that I had posted back then, and found a "fix"  Also, I should have clarified that both laptops were/are mine.  Windows 7 was a laptop i used primarily for work.  The windows 8 laptop is a gaming laptop I purchased new in 2016. 

 

And I should have searched before posting (again), as I would have found my own fix.

 

My apologies.
