Continuing our self help theme today, Hades has packaged up an installed to make sure you can run the Windows 95 version of Wing Commander 4 in Windows XP. If you have trouble trying to get the game installed, use this set of files to get around your difficulty.
The boxed native Win95 version of WC4 includes a Windows based installer. You'll probably need to extract the zip to a directory somewhere and then copy the contents of the first WC4 CD to that directory before running the setup exe. You might also need to edit a file once installed to change the CD path and then install the W95 game patch.You can download the package here. The original Windows 95 patch for WC4 can be found here. This solution came out of alt.games.wing-commander. If you have further difficulty, check out our Tech Support Forum.
