I've been trying to play the free Betrayal at Krondor I recently downloaded. I keep getting an error when I run the setup.exe file. It tests several pc attributes fine, then it crashes and I get this alert:

Application Error
integer divide by 0

Thus, I can't get it to finish the setup process.

Also, if I try to run the krondor.exe file, it tells me I don't have enough memory. It says the same thing if I try to make a bootable floppy disk. Which is crazy, because the system requirement is 2048K and the setup says the memory test passed with lots to spare.

Any advice on how I can get the game working?

Please post how you solved the problem. It could help other members with the same or with a similar problem with their games.

Egads, I am dense, eh? Sorry about that.

Apparently, this memory problem mostly pertains to Win 2k or XP, but there is also a common sound issue that is addressed with this fix. The steps are really easy, and should fix similar troubles running other older games.

Here is a link to the page where I found the solution. Credit where credit is due!

And I apologice for not thinking to post the solution.

I am also having this error. I have to use the dosbox (0.63) to play these older games, and have tried several things suggested to me over at VOGONS, but they didn't work. (You can link to my post on the problem and their suggestions here: http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?t=11118)

I have also tried the suggestion of adding the EMM=RAM found here, but that did not fix my problem. Can you suggest anything else I can try?

In case you need to know, my computer stats are: 2800+ AMD Athlon XP Processor, 80 GB hard drive, 512 MB DDR SDRAM, Radeon 9200 video card (128 MB DDR, AGP 8x/4x), and (I think ) NVidia NForce sound card. I am running XP and have Dosbox-0.63.

Thanks.

Hi, aviendha.

Only advice I can give is to make sure you are adding the emm=RAM line in the config.nt file and not the config.sys file. Also, for the game to recognize that addition, the EMM setting in the EXE file properties has to be set to Auto.

I'm certainly no expert on this. I imagine there could be all kinds of factors to change what steps may be necessary on a specific system.

Sorry! :/
