HQGM stops at 0% during my install

Postby Duke Blitzein » Saturday December 5th, 2020 12:52pm

I am trying to install the HeroQuest Game Master on my windows 10 machine. It stops at zero percent for a very long time and when I go into task manager it says HQGM is not responding and I'm forced to use task manager to exit out of it. The same thing happens when I tried with compatability mode windows 7. This also happened with a compatiblity version of windows XP.

So again today I tried to tackle this problem today and I got a messages saying unable to install such and such file. Please run this install program again to finish installing the rest of the program. So I tried to run the install program again and I'm back to the same problem of HQGM installation stopping at 0 percent.

I will try now to recreate the message about the file not being able installed, because I should have saved the message, but I didn't and I have forgotten the name of the file.

Okay, I have it from a good source on how to get the HQGM to work in Windows 10.

A Regedit user by the name of Joey Vera found a way to make it work. Here are his/her instructions(https://laforjadelosheroes.blogspot.com ... ndows.html):

1- Run hqgm2_6.exe with admin priviledges. At some point it will get stuck. Close the installer.
2- Right-click on Caxton-Bold.ttf install.
3- Install VBRun60.exe with admin priviledges. If asked, select the program run correctly.
4- Copy the 3 files from dependencies folder to c:\windows\system32 and c:\windows\syswow64 folders (I installed it in 2 different computers and one of them require the file in one folder and the other one in the other).
5- Open the windows command line app (windows-key, type cmd, right-click in command prompt icon -> run as admin)
6- Run the following commands in the command line app:
regsvr32 -u richtx32.ocx
regsvr32 richtx32.ocx
regsvr32 -u mscomctl.ocx
regsvr32 mscomctl.ocx
regsvr32 -u comdlg32.ocx
regsvr32 comdlg32.ocx
7- Copy the folder HQGM into c:\ (you will be asked if overwrite 2 files, say "yes").
8- Click on c:\HQGM.exe to run the app
*- If you still receive any message when running the app saying that any of the previous files on step 6 is no correctly registered, repeat the
regsvr32 -u "file"
regsvr32 "file"
Commands in the command line. I experience this problem and was solve after repeating the registration.
*- The quests' book is also included in the file (All_quests.zip). You need to unzip the content into C:\HQGM\Quests
