AGS error when attempting to run Blackwell Legacy
« on: February 05, 2012, 10:19:55 PM »
I've looked around on the forum for a solution and all I can find is that some other players have had a similar issue. I could not see a "fix".

A few things to note:

- Running Windows 7
- Bought via website and installed "Legacy_Setup_v17.exe"

Whenever I run the game, I get the following error message: http://i.imgur.com/4Wagx.png.

Not sure what I can do on this. Any help would be appreciated. Just bought the Blackwell Bundle from the website and I can't start playing!

Thanks!

Here's what you do.  Reinstall the game and when it asks you where you want to install the game, do NOT choose the "program files" directory.  There's a long techy reason why this happens, but the gist of it is that on some computers the "program files" directory has extra security.  So install the game somewhere else and you should be fine.

The same thing happens with Blackwell Deception. Thanks for the tip, Mr G! =)

Hey Dave your suggestion worked. Initially i too installed it in program files and it gave an error while running it. But now it is working perfectly.
