Updated installer… see first post for more info… 😉18th November 2008 at 08:54 in reply to: Windows Game Explorer – Automatic Installer (18 Nov 2008) #47647
Correct, this only installs the Game Explorer and NOT the Microsoft games…
I just launched the gameexplorer_setup.
Everything seems right. But:
The Vista games are not included in this setup or should they?
Typing games into the adressbar in my explorer works just fine, but the shown folder is empty.
If this is right, does anyone know how to get the Vista-Games? I’ve only got some Vista Recovery CD, so this won’t work I think…
But a really big thanks for this great program and the work you out into it!
It doesn’t install the games from Vista, only the Games Explorer.14th November 2008 at 03:46 in reply to: Windows Game Explorer – Automatic Installer (18 Nov 2008) #47642
Seems i fixed one bug and created another… 😛
i’ll fix it when i get a chance (sorry i can’t do it at the moment, your best bet is Sunday)…
I’ll also add an option to add the “Games” shortcut to the start menu…
Thank you, works great, installed without a hitch on x64 as admin, games show up in folder as I play them.
Only problem I’m having is registering it as a user, I get the same error as steve and arris did earlier.
I created a shortcut and added /updatereg in target box and then I run as administrator.
Is this the correct procedure or am I doing something wrong?14th November 2008 at 03:38 in reply to: Windows Game Explorer – Automatic Installer (18 Nov 2008) #47641
Fantastic installer! Everything works flawlessly now! 😀 To access the Game Explorer, I just type Games in the location bar of a Windows Explorer window and I see all the games I have installed! 🙂 Also added a link to this topic to the Games and Entertainment page in the Manual so everybody can find it. 😉
You could also add it to your start menu (If you are using the new style Start Menu)… 😉
1. Click the Start/Windows button.
2. Right Click on an empty spot, select “Properties”.
3. Next to “Start Menu”, Click on “Customize”, scroll down until you find “Games” and select the option of how you would like it displayed.13th November 2008 at 20:37 in reply to: Windows Game Explorer – Automatic Installer (18 Nov 2008) #47637
Updated… again… Please confirm that it’s working… 😉13th November 2008 at 11:09 in reply to: Windows Game Explorer – Automatic Installer (18 Nov 2008) #47634
Updated… see end of first post…
PS: I have tested the installer under a clean installation of Windows Server 2008 x64, it appears to work correctly now…
Please post here if you are having any problems or have successfully installed it under Windows Server 2008 x64 and/or x8611th November 2008 at 04:57 in reply to: Windows Game Explorer – Automatic Installer (18 Nov 2008) #47633
Sorry for the delay folks…
Just have to sort out two minor bugs installing under (1) 64 bit enviroment and (2) standard user accounts…
This should be sorted out by the end of the day (depending on your time zone, mine is CET +2 hours)…4th November 2008 at 05:00 in reply to: "gameux.dll" automatic installer for Windows Server 2008 #47590
what is the big deal with games explorer? all my games work fine without it
if you get the Games Explorer couldn’t be found error, just set them to windows XP compatibility mode.
I’m not totally crazy about it but it does serve its purpose, apart from having a messy desktop without it, some of the newer games (notably from Electronic Arts and Ubisoft) only add a shortcut/link for the game in the “Games Explorer” when installed (for example FIFA 09, Far Cry 2, Dead Space and some others).3rd November 2008 at 22:42 in reply to: "gameux.dll" automatic installer for Windows Server 2008 #47586
Just done some testing (under x64 enviroment), seems I have “Windows Game Explorer” working, still more testing to be done though don’t want to give you dodgey programs ;)…
It’s even adding games automatically (when NOT started from the “Game Explorer”, for example StarCraft, F.E.A.R, Quake 3, Quake 4 to name a few)… Drag and Drop into to the “Game Explorer” is also working.3rd November 2008 at 21:30 in reply to: "gameux.dll" automatic installer for Windows Server 2008 #47585
About the Game Explorer: someone already got it working, see the thread Get Games Explorer Working on Server 2008, but I still have to test it and create a tutorial for it in the Manual. :geek:
I read that exact article this morning :D, I’m currently working on an automated installer for the “Windows Game Explorer”, might make your work in the manual a little easier… 😉
PS: I have just finished making an automated installer for “Windows Movie Maker” for both x86 and x64 flavours (I’ll upload it soon), weighing in at just less that 74MB (for both).
I’m also working on a light weight installer (around 200KB) which will install the needed files from a Vista Installation CD, if you have the CD (or setup files on your drive) and don’t want to download 74MB.
I would have done all of this (automated installers) a lot sooner but I only recently moved from Vista x64 to Server 2006 x64, just trying to make everyone’s lives a little simpler.3rd November 2008 at 05:35 in reply to: Age of Empires II and the Conquerors expansions work #468992nd November 2008 at 16:43 in reply to: "dmusic.dll" automatic installer for Windows Server 2008 #47457
