  1. Since I've taken it upon myself to write install guides for the game on various new windows formats it's now time to run windows 10 thru the blender. First off, Microsoft my hats off to you and about time you got it right. Yes 10 is that good. Okay with that out of the way lets get to how I installed the game. First windows 10 is not the pos windows 8 and most certainly 8.1 was for installing games and other older software. It's very similar to windows 7 in mannerisms with a compatibility and running stuff so far as I have found. It doesn't require wierd settings or fancy software or spectacular knowledge of the inner workings to make stuff work. You install it and use it. I had the game previously installed from my conversion to 10 (I install games and large install folders to a seperate drive from my os drive) So I had a functional folder to begin with. You will need 2 folders (I'll provide at the end of the article) The Net-7 install folder and the Release folder from a previous install. About 2gb of hard drive space and a internet connection. If you read my windows 8.1 article ( https://forum.enb-emulator.com/index.php?/topic/11263-windows-81-the-install/) this is going to be very familiar. I suggest on 64 bit os's to install older pre windows 7 games to the root of your os drive if possible C:\Games\ is my suggestion. 64 bit windows and 16/32 bit games can be a problem. The game is directx7 so it qualifies for the root folder install. If you have a previous install such as mine, open your net-7 folder(if you are running from a previous install location) and go in and delete the 4 text files: Client-FileList.txt Client-Version.txt Net7-FileList.txt Net7-Version.txt Then run ( E:\Games\Net-7\bin\lLaunchNet7.exe In my particular case) your LaunchNet7.exe from the net-7/bin folder and locate your game install folder/Release/Client.exe file let it update and adjust your firewall if needed. Go thru your net-7/bin folder and your game install folder and right click the game exe's: Net-7/bin LaunchNet7.exe net7proxy.exe Game install\Release Client.exe Earth&Beyond\EBCONFIG\ net7config.exe VIDTEST.EXE You need to right click these and open properties and in the Compatibility Tab(this is going to deviate a lot from 7/8) Only check the Run as Administrator check box. I found that using the compatibility check box to run as windows xp wont allow multiple instances of the game. I was getting the dreaded E&B is already running box. I tinkered with it and unchecked it on the client.exe and I can log as many clients in as I want. If you have issues please post them so I can look at the issues on my side and see if i can replicate them. You only need to do this to these files This is if you have a previous install For those of you starting with a fresh install.(crosses self says a couple holy c**** just kidding) This is pretty easy. Download the net-7 and release files at the end of the article. If you followed my earlier advice and made a games folder in your root of your drive (such as C:\Games\ ) Step 1 Create a Earth & Beyond folder Unpack the release folder into the newly made earth and beyond folder. Unpack net-7 to the game folder. In the net-7 folder open the bin folder and right click the LaunchNet7.exe and right click and pin to your start and or your task bar(I use taskbar but I do most certainly love the 10 start menu Did i mention i really like 10??) Step 2(yes copypasta sue me I'm lazy) Go thru your net-7/bin folder and your game install folder and right click the game exe's: Net-7/bin LaunchNet7.exe net7proxy.exe Game install\Release Client.exe Earth&Beyond\EBCONFIG\ net7config.exe VIDTEST.EXE You need to right click these and open properties and in the Compatibility Tab(this is going to deviate a lot from 7/8) Only check the Run as Administrator check box. I found that using the compatibility check box to run as windows xp wont allow multiple instances of the game. I was getting the dreaded E&B is already running box. I tinkered with it and unchecked it on the client.exe and I can log as many clients in as I want. If you have issues please post them so I can look at the issues on my side and see if i can replicate them. Step 3. Go back to your launchnet7 shortcut you created in step 1 and run it. I had to install .net2.5/3 and windows installed it automatically via the dialog box. net-7 will want to know the current location of your installed game client.exe (hint it's in your release folder) >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>IMPORTANT<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Step 4. Update the game as required. The game files require about 1.3gb approximately. Since we are installing the game via this method you will not have any registry settings. You must click yes or continue on all of the boxes that come up when you start the launcher/client the first time. If you fail to click yes or continue on the next error dialog boxes your game probably will not run till you click yes/continue. Yes/continue.. do I make my point clear? You were warned. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> End of IMPORTANT<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< I have not tried to install the game via the demo or net-7 with the currently availble unified installer. So please relate any problems with it if you run across any. If the forum mods would be kind and sticky this, I believe people will find it very helpful. Good luck and see you out in the universe. As a side note I reformatted this morning and I didn't have the net-7 or client.exe. So I went to net-7.org logged in and downloaded the net7unified installer and ran it and let it update. When I got done with the ms dot.net stuff I didn't have the client folder, so I made the Earth & Beyond folder. I created the release folder also and inside of it, I made a text file called client.exe.(right click the open area create text file/renamed it Client.exe and forced it to change the extension) So I ran net7 off my desktop and pointed it towards the folder and had it update the game from there and as I was letting net-7 verify files I deleted the client.exe and let it fully update. Worked fine the launcher replaced the file and off it went. So another alternative install method. Added the client unlocker till I write an article on that subject. release.zip Net7MultiClientUnlocker.zip Net-7.zip
