Morning everyone.

Having once been an avid player of Links 2003 I've decided to get it out and play again [used to be on kisstours.com].

I notice folk are having some issues with installing it on newer machines so just wanted some advice before I install it as I might be wasting my time.

According to Belarc Advisor I'm running Windows 10 Pro [x64] with a 1.50 gigahertz Intel Celeron 1007U processor [2 core].

I am familiar with VirtualBox and wondered if this is an option.

Any help appreciated.

I certainly would check out that Belarc Adviser. I don't see how you could be running Windows 10 on a computer that might have been okay with Windows 95.

I hope someone, who can help you, drops in. I am just having a slight problem understanding how many computers you are talking about. Good luck to you.

Just the one, with the specs given. I played the game years ago on another pc, now I want to see if I can play it on a newer machine.

Your biggest issue may be the graphics card.

If your PC uses an Intel Integrated Graphics system you could be in trouble.

If you peruse the Members Tech Forum here you will see plenty of posts about the issues involved in running Links on Windows 10.

Thanks Andy,

I assume that I'll have the same trouble using Virtual Box and an older version of Windows.

I'll take a look over at the forum you mentioned

There is no 3D acceleration in the Virtualbox that I am aware of, so I do not think Links would play in a Virtualbox
