View Full Version : Problems Running TR3 on Win 2000
Hi maybe some of you guys can help you seem to know more about TR than me. I used to run TR3 on Win 98 but have since upgraded to win 2000 which meant that I couldn't run the game any more until I saw the patch on the chronicles website so I downloaded and followed the instructions to patch the game by installing the new exe, and dll files and setting up the compatability mode for win 98 but I can't get the game to startup, for some reason it cannot see the CD drive! The CD is ok because it runs ok on my laptop.
The patch is for running the game on XP and Windows 2000, so setting it to Windows 98 compatibility is a no-no. Turn off compatibility.
Moving to Technical support, should you require any further help.
Welcome to the forum Bazill,
Download and install the Patch from HERE (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/trupdate.exe)
Update to latest patch and FMV programs. Also an option to copy the audio files to disk to eliminate any pauses in game play due to accessing the CD-ROM. This also solves not seeing the CD.
What Sim is saying is that the patch takes care of that all: patch the game, install the FMV program and copy the audiofiles to hdd! :) When you apply the patch, do NOT use compatibility mode! If you did, undo it or
uninstall the game,
then use trrc.exe (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/trrc.exe) (TR Registry Cleaner will remove all game settings left behind after uninstalling TR games),
and re-install the game before you patch with our patch (and NOT applying compatibility mode!).
