Hi!

I've entered in this forum because I have a problem and I don't know how to fix it.

Long ago I bought and played The Children of the Nile and forgot it for years.

Now I tried to install the game but the disc starts running an then stops suddenly.

Which is the problem? My computer is an Aspire V3-571G of ACER.

Memory: 750 GB
Intel Core i5 3210M of third generation with dual core and 2,5 GHz and 8 GB of RAM
NVIDIA Geforce GT 630M
Windows 10.

Thank for your help.

Hi AnjesenMaat

Try run Setup directly from the disc.

Hi!

I did it, but it didn't work.

Can this happen because the version is of 2004?

Thanks.

It is very likely the reason is the game is old and you are trying to install it on Win10.

You could try check the forums at gog.com. They have a legal DRM free version of the game. If you have luck it might work on your computer.

Hi!

I am sorry for being late.

I think I don't understand what do you mean.

The only way that I've found is the way of paying the game again. I think it isn't fair because I paid it long ago.

Or is there another way?

Thank you :)

I would not say it is unfair. The game is pretty old and Windows 10 is new and the game was not meant for running on Windows 10.

Try check out the forums at gog.com and see how the game fares on Windows 10. If the gog.com version works, keep an eye on the game at gog.com. You can find it several times a year on sale at around US$6 (or the EU equivalent). They also have Caesar 3, Pharaoh/Cleopatra and Zeus/Poseidon. I don't know if they run on Win10 though.
