Roller Coaster Tycoon 1 will not open.

Post by mrmike16 on Sun 06 Aug 2017, 21:13

Hi, I have followed the installation guide included with the Roller Coaster Tycoon package.  I did not install the expansions.  I actually still have the original game, although I don't see a product key with it (don't remember needing one, either) and I'd like it to run off the hard drive and not the CD.  I did what it said and moved the rct.exe file from the Cracks folder and replaced the original one with it, inside the Program Files (x86)/Hasbro Interactive/Roller Coaster Tycoon folder.

When trying to open it, I get the error "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000022).  Click OK to close the application.  I also tried Compatibility Mode with no success.

Any idea why?

Also, if it's possible to just install it from the CD and not need the CD anymore that would be useful too.

Thanks!

//EDIT


No suggestions...?
I tried re-downloading it and both a full install and minimal install.  I miss this game  I mean I can play it from the CD...Maybe there's a way to use that to make a no-CD version?

Hello again,

With G4TW downloads, you should normally use the program WinRAR to open the downloaded .rar files. Then you drag & drop all files that show up, into a new folder. And run the installation from there. No need to burn those files onto a CD, although it is theoretically doable.

Is your Windows system maybe Windows 10? It's also possible that there could be general compatibility issues.
