I recently tried to install exile on a different computer than normal. It gets to the third disk fine then it says something about exiting installation if you wish to install please run the installation again. Then it ejects the disk and says please insert exile disc one into the drive, i do this and it lags and freezes so that i have to alt ctrl dlt and end the task. I have tried it sevral times but the same thing happens again! thanks

Well i installed it on my laptop now BUT...... When i launch the shortcut on the desktop i choose either software or The other one. If i choose the "other one" (name i cant remember) it just closes. Now if i click software the screen goes black then closes. Thus no way to start it. I've tried a compatibilty wizard but i wasn't exactly sure what i was doing so if anyone can help that would be great!

down.gif glad you posted here, miskingo, someone will help out...
All I can say, is that I had the same problem when I had the cd version of exile and then I got a new puter. I finally got the 10th anniversery edition on dvd...all three games worked just fine...although I did have to do the compatibility wizard for Myst and Riven. IMHO the old cd versions just don't run on the new puters.

Are you running XP Miskingo? If so, there is a chance that the CD version of Exile won't work. However, if you buy Myst IV Limited Edition (which is a great game), it comes with an Exile DVD which works perfectly with my XP. I don't know if they sell Myst IV in anything but the limited edition, but I would check the box to make sure.

If you are unable to do this, please post your system specs (OS, processor, memory, video card, etc.) as these can help some of the techier people here. Hope you get Exile working soon!

so check the box as Ken said to make sure.

I honestly think that as long as there are new explorers in Exile . . .
this thread is still current.
