    Original Crysis 1 not launching


    Hello

    A friendly hobbit asking for some help (although I'm a lot taller)
    Crysis won't launch. When I try to open the game through the SecuROM launcher app, it says to please upgrade to windows 2000 or better, and when I open the game, crysis64.exe it just crashes. I have all the latest drivers for my GPU, and latest patches for Crysis.


    screenshots should be attached

    Thanks so much if you can help me

    Hi Frodo,
    I recommend you try using the Troubleshoot Compability by right-clicking the shortcut/exe of Crysis and pressing Troubleshoot Compability, then choose Try using recommended settings.
    I had this problem with some app installer. Worked with me!

    Thanks for your reply!

    I tried this, and It's still giving me those same errors. It's almost as if its ignoring the compatibility flags.
