Paraworld won't launch.

Post by Slappy » Sun Sep 06, 2015 17:25 pm

Hi.
I have had this game for as long as i remember, used to play it on the familys old computer which had Windows XP on it.'
I miss playing this game and i have tried installing it and play it on 2 different computers over the last 3 years. My computer now is an MSI gaming laptop with Windows 8.1 on it.
I can install it fine and everything but when it comes down to launching the game nothing happens, i get a pop-up telling me the program wants to do changes on my computer where i can only press "yes" if i want it to actually work on something. And when i do this my computer starts working for 2 seconds and then stops, when i check my taskbar it says that Paraworld Launcher is still working but i can let my pc be on for hours without anything happening.
I have tried downloading the boosterpack but that doesnt do anything either, tried ALL the compatibilities but that doesnt help.

I have had this game since i was a kid (When it came out) and i would love to play it again. So i hope you could help me with this because god i want to play it again so bad. :|

I had the problem that I couldn't start certain programs (properly at least). Turned out to be a broken tablet driver causing the programs to silently crash when launching them, because they worked with WinDbg.

I have the same problem and it drives me crazy. When i click the play button nothing happens. I have a new lenovo laptop with windows 10 is it possible that it doesnt have enough power to run this game? My much older computer was good enough to run this so i dont believe it to be the reason. Is there any advice for us? I would love to play the game again.

You need boosterpack 2.0 and the Win7 fix installed (in this order)

Have you tried the Win7fix from Tech Center on this forum? :)
