Installing Problem in Windows 11 Pro

Hi,

maybe anybody can help with this Problem:

I've been playing on Windows 10 for a long time and I know how to fix the compatibility issues. It has always worked. Two months ago I updated my Win10 to Win 11 and it worked wonderfully again.
My DVD drive has long been "outsourced" to a PCIe SATA card and still seems to be working...

Now my problem:
Last week I dared to reinstall Windows 11, which means no update from Win 10 but a pure Win 11 ISO with the Media Creation Tool and installed. I took the opportunity to change the SSD from a WD Black SN850 with 500GB to a WD Black SN850X with 1TB. I changed the slot of the PCIe card from a PCIe 1x slot to a PCIe 4x slot directly below to make room for a modification of the GPU fan...
The system works perfectly and there were no other changes to the hardware.

I start the installation with the BF1942 DVD, click on Install in the window. The installation process begins and then aborts with the message:
UNHANDLED EXCEPTION
Error number: 0x80010105
Description: Server threw exception.
Setup will now exit

I can't find a way out of the situation no matter what I do. The CD is in very good condition and has not been touched since the last installation and has been well stored. As I said, the DVD drive seems to still work.

The Version is a DICE EA Value Games / most wanted BF1942 WWII Anthology Issue

Does anyone know this problem and can help me?
I would be very grateful.
The war is waiting and the withdrawal symptoms are unbearable... wink

The Problem with Retail Disk are, that Drm, Safedisk and Securom are not supported anymore in Window since years now.


You can just use a One Click Installer, like this one:

https://uptobox.com/byk2i3bzwn4w     (You have to wait 1 Minute before the Free Download-Button is active.)

Install Bf1942 by dblclick on "bf1942-setup.exe" in the folder "Battlefield 1942 WWII Anthology HD"

(Forget that Widescreenpatch in that Package, you need a newer one, ... this one. 


https://team-simple.org/forum/viewtopic … 68#p176268


> After that, check if "BlackScreen.exe" in the Battlefield 1942 - Folder is set to compatibility mode "Run as admin". Also Bf1942.exe.


After that, you can start Bf1942, i guess Windows will install the DirectX9 automaticly, when you start it. Otherwise run the Compatibility Check.

(Instead of that you can activate "Direct Play" via "Legacy Components" manually).

https://www.thewindowsclub.com/how-to-i … on-windows  )

...

Then look, how its running.

If the Gameplay feels, like you would hang in rubberbandings, try the d3d8.dll, which you have to copy into the Battlefield 1942 (Main) Folder.

https://github.com/crosire/d3d8to9/rele … 1/d3d8.dll

Then try again.

...

Btw. What the heck is smelling here... smile

...

> Ah, i forgot > Do not install old Games into "C:\Program Files". Use "C:\Games\..." or another harddisk. (Program Files is restricted.)

> Perhaps also not wrong, to run the Installer "bf1942-setup.exe" as Administrator.

Re: Installing Problem in Windows 11 Pro

... sorry for my wind, I had onions and eggs yesterday smile

Thank you very much for the helpful quick replies!

I'll try it out in my free time and then reply how it went.
I am also grateful that there are SIMPLE servers that I have enjoyed playing on for years!
I finally registered on the forum. It is about time...
Everything here is very informative!

PS:
I activated DirectPlay via Legacy Components during my experiments...
Good idea to install this in a different folder! I didn't pay attention to that with BF1942.
After all, that's how my beloved FlightGear works and it's also recommended there...
