How does one virtualize an exclusively 32 bit windows app and enables it to run on a 64 bit system? I've tried VMWare Thinapp (with the wow64=0 option), compatibility patches and it still won't work. Apparently the problem is that the executables are located in the C:\Windows folder. Is there a way to make the application work from some other folder? I'm thinking hex editing, etc.
that version is inferior and i really want to get this working. I've been trying for some time now...
Did you try the PC version on here http://www.theisozone.com/downloads/pc/windows-games/tonic-trouble-3/?
I'm downloading it now, it'll take 20 minutes or so just to download but I'm very interested in if it works or doesn't.
Yes, that's actually the one i have, it will just crash when you click play if you are on 64 bit. The setup is a clusterfuck too, it installs in C:\ and C:\Windows. What was ubi thinking?
But I mean you can't run a virtual machine of XP and run it inside that?
I'm going to experiment a teeny bit in a couple minutes the download is almost done. I'll let you know if I get the error also.
That one actually works but it's very different. The game was initially a tech demo for the Rayman 2 engine and that's what that is. Then it was made into a full game that is the one with the issues. The N64 version is a really crappy one too so the only good version is unplayable.
