I'm trying to unzip and run a game using Windows 7. The game ran on an earlier version of Windows.
Myabandonware.com gives these instructions
1 Download MekTek Version.
2 Unzip the file to your chosen drive. C:\MW4Mercs etc.
3 Open folder and run under admin mode “autoconfig_MERCS.exe”
4 Select your video card and graphics setting.
5 Find MW4Mercs.exe and make a shortcut on your desktop.
6 Run in admin mode.
The file is a Zip file, and I've never figured out how to use those.
First I downloaded the program named 7Zip
I am not sure if I successfully unzipped the file.
Within the game, there is a Tab for setting Video, but the Screen Resolution drop down button does not do anything
I reached all the way to step six, but the game launches to a black screen
and I get an error message: STOP: You do not have the correct video codec installed to play Content\Movies\mektek_mekpak31_logo.mpeg
It then gives choice buttons: More Details, Continue, Exit
When I choose Continue, the game appears to launch, but the screen is completely black and there is no sound. I may not be waiting long enough.
Sometimes when I click a few times with my mouse, an animated mouse cursor for the game appears on the black screen.
sometimes the black screen then shirnks to about one fourth of my monitor screen, and it appears to be the whole game, but music stutters a bit.
I try to select the option to go full screen, but then, it crashes to black screen again, and I get:
Fatal Error Nested exception - Cause: EnterWindowMode.
Error: You do not have the correct video codec installed to play
Content\Movies\mektek_mekpak31_logo.mpeg at 0x0
The Minimize button works fine, it just won't enlarge to full screen
