Draclvr has special instructions for installing the game in both the ***Windows 7 and Games***
Dracula Resurrection As with TLS, I got the error about having the wrong version of Windows for the game. I installed from the CD in XP SP2 compatibility mode. It's playing better than it ever did on my XP computer as I had to play it in 98SE compatibility on that machine.
and the ***Windows 8 and Games***
Dracula Resurrection 2000 NOTE: Another surprise. Initially the game didn’t install, but I right clicked the setup file on the disk and clicked on Run as Administrator. The setup asked me if I wanted to install DirectX 6.1 and I said yes. The game ran perfectly – I couldn’t run it in XP without selecting Windows 98 in Compatibility Mode. I did have to send a game shortcut icon to the desktop. The game installed to C:\Program Files.
By the way, the first edition of Dracula Resurrection (year 2000) did not use TAGES.
And as far as I know, reissues of the game did not change the original copy "protection" (except possibly for download versions, which removed the "copy protection" altogether).
So updating TAGES won't do a thing for you.
I have also tried running the game in the XP compatibility mode but I get the same this
What you miss is that you have to change compatibility on the file used to install the game BEFORE installing it.
