Hi;

The last time I tried to install it:
Uru - Ages Beyond Myst 1.0 (CD-Rom) = Install OK, but the game quits at starting.
+ Patch 1.2 = same
+ To D'ni = same
+ Complete Chronicles (2 CD-Rom) = same
+ No-CD patch (or Drizzle31) + disable all fullscreen ameliorations in the shortcut properties = runs well.

Or

Complete Chronicles (GOG version) + disable all fullscreen ameliorations in the shortcut properties = runs well (with or without Drizzle31).

Hi.

I did some test today and wrote an installation process (because I have several memory loses).

Quote:
On Windows 10 Family x64, Version 1703 Build 15063.608


I) Ages Beyond Myst


- With the "Ages Beyond Myst" CD:

- Install the game in "C:\Uru".


- Without CD:

- Copy the files from the "Ages Beyond Myst - NoCD patch" into "C:\Uru" by replacing the existing files.
- In the shortcut properties, in the compatibility tab, check "Run this program as admin".
- Finish the game.


II) To D'ni


- With the "Ages Beyond Myst" CD:

- Install the "To D'ni" expansion pack in "C:\Uru".


- Without CD:

- Copy the files from the "To D'ni - NoCD patch" into "C:\Uru" by replacing the existing files.
- Check in the shortcut properties, in the compatibility tab, that "Run this program as admin" is checked.
- Finish the expansion pack.


III) The Path Of The Shell


a)


- With the "Complete Chronicles" CD1 (& CD2):

- Install "The Path Of The Shell" expansion pack in "C:\Uru".


- Without CD:

- Copy the files from "The Path Of The Shell - NoCD patch" into "C:\Uru" by replacing the existing files.
- Run "SoundDecompress.exe".
- Check in the shortcut properties, in the compatibility tab, that "Run this program as admin" is checked.
- Finish the expansion pack.


b)


- Uninstall Uru.
- Install the G.O.G. version of "Complete Chronicles" (Version 2.0.0.5) in "C:\Uru".

- In "C:\Uru", in the "UruExplorer.exe" properties, in the compatibility tab, check that:

- "Replace the high PPP scaling behavior." is checked;
- "Scaling performed by:" contains the "Application" selection;
- and that "Run this program as admin" is checked.

- Check in the shortcut properties, in the compatibility tab, that "Run this program as admin" is checked.
- Finish the expansion pack.


All other cases in the files properties are not checked.
And you know what, the 4 versions I tested (ABM - CD, To D'ni - Patch, Complete Chronicles - 2CD, and Complete Chronicles - G.O.G. Installer),
with ultra sounds selected, fullscreen (1280x960 for me), max quality everywhere, and both cases checked,
runs well... And they runs better than they did on Windows 7!
