My Problem:

I wanted to play MechWarrior 4 Mercenaries again, so i installed it from the original disks.
After the Setup is done, i click on it, the cursor indicates loading but nothing happens.

So what i did is looking for a fix, this is what i've tried without success so far:

-compatiblity mode
-running as administrator
-running autoconfig as administrator, which opens the settings window but after clicking "next" it just closes and nothing happens
-looking for a free or Mektek variant on the web while understanding that the free version has been retracted
-searching for clues on the web hoping someone else had the same issue before

My PC runs on Windows 7 64-bit

Again my problem is that starting the game wont do anything

I would appreciate any suggestions

i can run it on windows 7 64-bit just fine. but i think there was a patch or something i had to download or some weird setup procedure.of course that was the mektek version that i had laying around on an old backup drive.

Ive tried that one and it works on Win 7

As there is no known current licenses for redistribution of MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries beyond Microsoft, forum policy regards any other distribution as piracy.

Due to recurrent piracy discussion, this thread has been closed.
