How Do i Ininstall on Windows 8

Post by Picard4th »

It keeps saying the file is corrupted when i try to install on windows 8.0. But installs fine on windows 10. I would rather play the game on my older Computer. The Newer one I wasnt really intending on using for any games. Any advice on how to get the game to work on Windows 8 would be much appreciated.

32 bit should not matter, problem is for me I have no 32 bit systems any more.

anyone else out there still have a windows 32 bit system to test on?

also if you can post a screenshot of error message might help

try this installer

BOTF_Top_10_mods_2.0.3b32.exe

it uses lzma2/ultra instead of lzma2/ultra64

I know the application is installing as a 32-bit app (registries are in WOW6432Node on 64 bit systems)

now I just read window vista is no longer supported by the installer due to security risks in windows vista now. (windows and most AV would flag risk)

but see no reason why windows 8 should not install
