Can't run Quest for Glory V in Windows 10

Post by Elsa Von Spielburg » Fri Oct 06, 2017 2:43 pm

I recently installed Windows 10 on my latest PC.

Everything is working fine, but last night I decided to install the Quest for Glory series and the first game I wanted to test was QFG V. But it won't run. :( All I get is an error. :(

I used Collector's latest installer and I figured I don't have to install any patches.

I tried using compatibility mode but no go.

Any ideas?

Found this from the Steam forums
I had this problem for the last few weeks. Someone smarter than I am found the hidden setting.
Under Control Panel -> Programs -> Apps and Features, select "Turn Windows Features On or Off". "Legacy components" needs to be checked.

Thanks Zachy! :D That did the trick! (Y)

I got a "memory 0" error at first, but after I used Windows XP under compatibility settings, it started up! :D (Y)

Thank you very much my friend! (Y)
