If it worked with your previous video driver, go back to that one. If you need instructions, tell us what version of Windows you're using so we can Google it for you.

Isn't this a game the Kheops fix will work on? I can't remember for sure... I'll try to find the old thread.

Family, are you saying it won't even launch or that you have problems with the video?

This is a pretty good tutorial on how to roll back a video card driver in Window 7, 8, and 10.

There was a fix for flickering, which is pinned.
http://www.gameboomers.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/1141189/Fix_for_flickering_in_Kheops_g
But here the game isn't starting at all.

Was there another patch for Kheops games?

I'm not sure why they'd send you that driver if you didn't already have a Radeon card. Did you send them a Dr. Felix?

Did you try going back to the driver that was working before you "updated" the video driver? Be sure to reboot after changing drivers.

And try compatibility mode if you haven't already.

Yes, I remembered that you had stickied that thread.

I'm confused here because I'm not sure what is meant by "now big fish one do not work, and that did not work, and i can not open it." What is "that" and what can't you open? The game? I'm going to back off here and see if Jenny can help you because I'm just not sure what is going on. If you rolled back the drivers to the one that worked before in the link I provided, you should be OK. But you don't say if that's what you did.

the video card will not open, it says it can not be started. there are no setting that can be configured using it, and roll back drivers were gray out.

I thought Family meant the driver "AMD\Radeon-Software-Adrenalin-18.6.1-" mentioned in the earlier post. Maybe Big Fish sent a link to the driver, but they should have at least sent instructions for it.

I don't think AMD/Radeon uses "Catalyst Control Center" anymore. I think they use something called "Crimson" instead -- or possibly they have something even newer now.

I'm not either. Rolling back the driver to the previous driver should not have been too difficult, and family would have been able to keep Catalyst Control Center.

Do you have a restore point?

It's still going?
What is it doing?
Is it trying to download something?
If it was installing, it should be done by now.

I never heard of sp65037 and a Google search turns up nothing.
Was this supposed to be a video driver?
Or an update for a Big Fish game?
Or what?

I tried looking that up and found ***this***.
If this is an HP laptop you're using, what is the model number?
Drivers for desktops will certainly be different from drivers for laptops -- and drivers between laptop models may not be compatible.

So you have an HP Pavilion 500-217c desktop?

That driver is 213.5 mb in size.
Be sure to download it before trying to run it.
And make sure that is the model computer you have.

Did it ever finish?
If not, it's probably frozen and will never finish.
