Thanks for the manual. But ... I understand it, not just me having problems installing D2X-CL ... I need help because just do not know how else to have to try to collect ...

I have Windows 7-64. Collected all the files as necessary, but not working. Writes: "The program has stopped working D2X-XL - Descent 1 & 2/Open Gl. Close the program and seek solution for the Internet." Install the latest drivers AMD HD 4800 series supports Open Gl, and still not working! I did everything for this instruction. Here's how I set with screenshots:

I created a folder C: Games/D2X-XL. It copied the files. Screenshot 1: http://pikbox.ru/img/2/-7064746321.jpg
Unzip the program archive in 7z. Screenshot 2: http://pikbox.ru/img/2/-1206077062.jpg
Extract to this folder all the files from your instructions with the replacement files.

Included d2x-xl.exe and d2x-xl-omp.exe. Does not work. I do not understand.

If no one has the time, throw off the screens of the game somebody please.

If you're using 64-bit windows, try running the program from the "d2x-xl 64-bit" exe somewhere in the bin folder.
Sorry I can't be more help.

Many thanks for the sympathy, Alter-Fox. That I just have not tried to do already =) Okay, do not:)))) I know from experience if something is given too hard, then eventually it will not be worth the effort. Sometimes it happens =) Maybe later will be the mood.

Yes, I was very angry that I can not install the D2X-XL :x But I had to do it. Despite spoiled the mood. And I want to say that this capricious girl was worth it to prevail upon her. Very very cool :D As for installation, everything was much easier than I thought.
