Re: Winners - Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes - Winners - 04/12/13 06:40 PM

Just got mine, downloading now.

I've downloaded, installed and activated. However, it won't come out of windowed screen. It has the option for full screen, but it won't take. Sent an e-mail, waiting to see what they say.

Also, if you copy and paste your activation code, it might not work, because of the highlight. I had to type in the code and then it worked.

Hi
Received mine today as well, thanks to Ana and Viva. Have downloaded but also had a problem with my AVG security which identified a threat and deleted the file. Now can't access. Will try again later.

MAD I am having the same problem with AVG. I ended up buying the game because I so wanted to play and I have not been able to play. If I turn AVG off the game installs but then it won't open. I have emailed support for some assistance. Hope you get play.

Re: Winners - Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes - Winners - 04/13/13 09:49 AM

I had this problem with AVG in the past, although it involved a physical CD rather than a download. What I had to do to get the game to install and run was to completely remove AVG from my computer, play the game, and then reinstall AVG - not a good solution. There is also a way to tell AVG to put the file that it doesn't like on its list of exceptions and in doing so you can get the game to run anyway, but that's a bit of a hassle just so that you can play a game.

What I ultimately ended up doing was to install Avast as my antivirus instead and I haven't encountered this problem since. It will alert you when it encounters what may possibly be a suspicious file, but it lets you decide whether or not you want to proceed.

I'm sorry to hear that some of you are having this problem. Antivirus programs are certainly well meaning, but sometimes they can be a pain in this regard. I'm sure this problem will get sorted. wave

Re: Winners - Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes - Winners - 04/13/13 10:11 AM

When Kaspersky alerted me, I told it to run anyway, so it did. However, the game won't open. It's fully installed, in fact, I did it twice, but just doesn't want to start. duh

Richard
Posted by: rockingrjranch

Re: Winners - Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes - Winners - 04/13/13 05:05 PM

I did buy the game and Norton wasn't going to allow it to install. Norton does, however, have an option to override which I did and the game installed. I had a little trouble with the code but it finally was accepted. Now the game will not launch and I have tried everything I can think of but nothing seems to work. I have opened up a ticket with Viva Media, sent them the specs for the machine but have seen other posts out on the internet with similar problems. frown
Posted by: Uncle Reg

Re: Winners - Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes - Winners - 04/13/13 05:26 PM


I got my email last night and the download, installation and activation were all accomplished without incident.

I can't comment on the AVG issue other than to say that I'm using Microsoft Security Essentials, which did not raise any objection to the entire download, installation and activation process.

I was able to copy and paste the activation code successfully, but I used an intermediate step in the process. I copied the activation code and pasted it into Notepad, saving it as a text file in the same folder as the downloaded setup file, which did not preserve that highlighting that was in the email. When I ran the game and got the activation screen, I copied the code from the saved text file, and it worked perfectly.

Thanks again to Ana and Viva Media for this giveaway. thumbsup

Re: Winners - Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes - Winners - 04/13/13 09:45 PM

kjos just wanted you to know that I didn't get the free game, I actually bought my game directly from Viva Media and am still having the issue with AVG. I just wanted you to know that because I saw your post where you said you might buy it. smile
I'm sure we will hear from them early next week and hopefully the game will run. I don't know why it won't open. I have never had a problem with AVG before. Makes me think that maybe I should look into another virus program. UGH!!!!
Posted by: GrandmaKate

Re: Winners - Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes - Winners - 04/14/13 06:40 AM

What's surprising me is that I've never had a problem with AVG before. Admittedly I usually use discs not downloads - but I've downloaded other stuff and it's not caused a problem.
I've also sent an email direct to Viva, so I'll wait and see what happens
Posted by: BrownEyedTigre

Re: Winners - Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes - Winners - 04/14/13 10:01 AM

AVG has deleted BigFish Games as well, it happens with a lot of the anti-virus at one time or another. Some components trigger a false positive. The importance is to notify the anti-virus companies after the specific component is identified so that add that to their accepted list. Otherwise people will continue to have the trouble.
Posted by: rockingrjranch

Re: Winners - Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes - Winners - 04/14/13 10:36 AM

It really does sound like a great game. I have had other Viva Media games that have run with no problems, so I am sure they will get this one working.
Posted by: Koalanut

Re: Winners - Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes - Winners - 04/14/13 10:37 AM


I don't have AVG, I have McAfee, and can't open the game either. I have tried redownloading and installing with it off and still no go. I did copy and paste the key in the first time, and so far that box has not come up again to type in the key. I did use CCleaner to make sure it was out and deleted Viva folder to get a clean reinstall.

Thanks Ana, I am sure it is some tweek in the programing somewhere. Looking forward to the game, I saw the screenshots. Looks good!

Re: Winners - Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes - Winners - 04/14/13 10:39 AM

I redownloaded with my Kaspersky off and it still won't play. I don't think it's an antivirus issue. crazy

"The importance is to notify the anti-virus companies after the specific component is identified so that add that to their accepted list. Otherwise people will continue to have the trouble."

I am assuming it is down to Viva Media to do that, BrownEyedTigre ??
Posted by: BrownEyedTigre

Re: Winners - Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes - Winners - 04/15/13 10:13 AM

No, that was directed to members. I have seen many developers over the years ask us (consumers) to ask the anti-virus companies to look into their lists because they are getting false positives. I do not have time to find them all, but here is one example of BF asking us to contact AVG.

The more that complain, the faster they fix it.

UPDATE: Viva-Media is working on the download issues and hope to have a solution by the end of the day. Please be patient.

Richard, you were resent the code. Please check your email.

Re: Winners - Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes - Winners - 04/15/13 01:39 PM

This was the same problem I had. No amount of clicking Full Screen will work. However, I closed the game and opened again, and what I had was Wide Screen, I guess, but still not full screen. Better than small window, but still windowed. I received an e-mail that they were looking to fix it, but I'm finished now.

I just finished the game in a couple minutes over 2 hrs.

The game wasn't bad, the music was appropriate, the puzzles were ok, nothing too challenging, the graphics were fine, some things were hard to find in HOS. The guide was outside with the menu, you have to leave the game to look at it. That was a nusance.

Re: Winners - Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes - Winners - 04/15/13 02:05 PM

Thar's the same thing I got Flo. I emailed them, waiting for a reply. I got a wide screen to when I restarted the game but will wait for a full screen before I play. Thanks

Got a answer from Andrew re downloaded the game and it works good now. Played about 20 min.
Loaded with HOS. Not my cup of tee

Hi BrownEyedTigre smile

In response to my email to Viva Media (re Norton Security removing the downloaded files) I was sent a new download link this morning - and I'm happy to say it worked fine, the game then installed fine and I am now playing it.

So plentiful of "fine" !! laugh

I will now relay my thanks to Viva Media right away yes

Hi

Gave up trying to get it to work on my computer - Vista and AVG, and downloaded it on my husband's computer - Windows 7 and McAfee. Although there was a security query, I managed to over-ride it and it works fine with a full-screen picture. Thanks Ana and Viva, looking forward to playing it

Re: Winners - Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes - Winners - 04/16/13 02:14 PM


The first one had a built-in strategy guide, even though you had to back out to the main menu to access it. In the new download, this strategy guide is missing.

Re: Winners - Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes - Winners - 04/16/13 07:09 PM

Well I guess I should have checked in here. lol The same thing happened to me. Norton deleted it before I could install it. I turned Norton off and redownloaded and could not get past the verification step.

I then emailed them and today, as I was busy the last few, I downloaded from the new link I was given and Norton said everything was fine. Game downloaded and installed just fine.

I then had a little trouble with activation with the copy/paste thing so just typed it in and whola....I can play the game and it looks like a good one too!!!

Hope everybody can get things all straightened out and play the game also!!

I emailed him this afternoon, haven't got a reply back yet. I expect that they are probably aware of it. I wouldn't be surprised if changing to the non-strategy guide version is the reason why that old profile folder had to be deleted.

Re: Winners - Veil of Mystery: Seven Little Gnomes - Winners - 04/20/13 12:57 PM

I got the new download site and still am having the same problem. Norton gave me a warning but it still installed. Still will not run even in XP compatibility mode and system admin rights. If anyone has Andrew's information I would appreciate it. Perhaps the person I am working with on the support desk hasn't gotten the updates yet.
