Trying to run Riven in Win xp. Finally found QT3, installed it, and tried every compatibility setting, and it still wont run. The best i can get is the screen changing to black, then back to my desktop 3 seconds later.
I even tried turning off all video and sound acceleration.
I found a thread explaining that a change to the mohawk.w32 file is the critical step. So I opened it up with notepad, made the changes, BUT IT WONT LET ME SAVE.
It says "Cannot create the C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Riven\mohawk.w32 file. Make sure taht the path and file name are correct"
Strange cuz all i did was open in notepad, make 2 changes, and try to save the program thats already there.
Which brings up another point. When I tried to install the patch 2.0, it couldn't recognize Riven as already being installed on my computer. I had to manually direct it to the folder. I don't know if this is related but maybe someone can shed seom light on the subject.
Any help is GREATLY appreciated!
