HoMM 3 not working.
 
Hi all!

I have tried to solve this in other forums, but they are not as nice as you people. ;)

I own Heroes of Might and Magic III and it worked fine in my old laptop. When it broke and I had to buy a new one with Windows 7, it just does not work. I can't even install it.

Would DosBox work with it and how would that be? What do you suggest?

HoMM3 works just fine on Windows 7 for me... and it's a Windows application, you can forget about DOSBOX.

Tried any compability mode? Ran as admin?

ok... I am feeling VERY stupid right now.

What kind of compability mode?

You need to right click on the executable and select an appropiate compatibility mode, most preferably either Windows 98 or Windows XP. Here's a possible solution on another forum. Or you can spend $10 bucks on a gog.com version which is said to be working out of the box.

If it still refuses to work, bring it back to the distributor, in case your copy isn't working.

Uh, I don't suppose her copy of HoMM 3 was meant to be run on Windows 7, if I'm correct.

Japo 15-05-2013 08:13 PM

This is for Windows 9x, right? It can probably be made run in Windows 7, although there's no clear-cut procedure. Try what Tomekk says. This is a checklist guide I made about old Windows games:

This thread should be in Troubleshooting ;)
