Thief 1 &2 not working with windows 7
I have Thief 3 playing without issue on my windows 7 but the other two will not install at all any suggestions to how to fix this issue
For Thief I, have a look through the FAQ listing here if you haven't already. As for Thief II, I installed it just yesterday on W7 64bit with this utility by DJ Riff, worked right off the bat. Try that, it's a WIP but seems to be working flawlessly, and allows you to configure the different packages applied. If any of the options in the patcher seem confusing, again, refer to the FAQ, it should clear everything up.
It worked! And thank you sooooo much!!
I wanted to take a moment to post to this thread. I’ve been doing a lot of digging around on the net to try and find a way to get any of the Thief games to work. Not sure exactly how or what made this work, I’m going to assume it was the tafferpatcher program that was linked from this thread. Thank you so much! Here’s what worked for me and the system specs:
Asus Laptop G73jh
6 Gigs of Ram
Windows 7 – 64bit
ATI Radion HD 5870
1) Standard install via CD’s (Thief2)
2) Applied patch 1.07 to 1.18
3) Copied CD1 on to desktop (folder: T2CD01)
4) Copied CD2 on to desktop (folder: T2CD02)
5) Ran tafferpatcher.exe and when promoted for the CD source I browsed to the applicable folder on my desktop
6) Restarted my laptop & was able to play the game!!!!!
