Hello thanks for answering my previous question, but i am again in a bit of confusion.

I had this game in C drive and i had to install other game so i copied it (all of them) to another drive (D) ... But now the game is not working.

I am clicking it again and again but its not working.

 

I have an old computer with core 2 duo , 75 gb/ 2 gb ..

 

Hoping for an answer like you guys did last time :)

Thank you,

KrisMan

Copying that known game directory from C to D did not move the AppData pointers [or ProgramData pointers] material from C to D.  The game was originally installed onto C, correct?  That's why I'm mentioning AppData or ProgramData pointers and such.

Can you install the game onto drive D?  Or, do you want to reinstall on drive C?  Either way, the settings and pointers are refreshed.

Let's try it; perhaps, with the files back on their home turf - the game just may work again.  Please advise of your success   :)

You might be able to buy a copy from Amazon or some place.
