I'm having issues getting WC3 installed. It downloads but never installs. It just keeps downloading in a loop. I'm running Windows 8.1 pro. I just downloaded and installed Sims 2, so I know the permissions are correct, also I'm an admin on my PC.
Do you have UAC (user account control) enabled and set to notify?
i downloaded wing commander 3 and was a little excited at first. so i launched and and wow, i totally was blown away at the huge blocky pixels lol. Then i remembered something. i bought at sams club a sega genesis classic game console which had over 80 games pre installed. here is what i am getting to, in the instructions it said if you are playing on a flat screen monitor 24" that i had to optimize the video settings for something.
so, these old games for 5 bucks are a good deal, but i wish they would have updated the graphics.
i mean its great the updated so they will run on our current pc's, but someone forgot about the monitors we are using today versus in the 90's lol
just my 2 cents

I played with a few more UAC settings and was finally able to get it installed. I appreciate the help!
after downloading and installing the game I started just to have a first impression.
There was a calibrating tool running for the joy stick and mybe something else.
I thougt I will calibate later..... no way.
I uninstalled, downloaded and installed it again, no chance.
I checked the program folder for applications to start...
How can I get that calibration tool started manually?
Right now game is not to play, curser alwasys moves is in the top right corner.
Thx for your help.
I get this error messag and game will not launch.
The procedure entry point InterlockedIncreaent could not be located in the dynamic library KERNEL32.dll.
I installed the game, and when I try to run it it is still telling me to install it. I also added the missing entry in the registry that worked for every other game I downloaded from origin and it still says install.
The missing entry for every other game was HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\"Game company"\"game"\
I had to add the string value Install Dir then point it to the installation directory
example titan fall was under Respawn\Titanfall\ and the Install Dir string was C:\Program Files(86)\Origin Games\Titanfall
the one I added for Wing Commander which didn't work was ...\Origin Systems\Wing Commander III\ and the Install Dir string is C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Wing Commander III\ which is where it installed to.
How can I fix the game so it is playable?
Anyone else have this problem? The joystick works all through game screens and calibrates fine but as soon as I start a mission the joystick doesn't do anything except that the fire button works... sux trying to fly with the number pad, doesn't even use the 'wasd' configuration
@EA_Nils I am having the same proble that @Lordofthekeg is having. I am running windows Vista 64 bit. I played around with the registry as I have with other games that fixed this issue but this time it won't let me. I am running as an administrator, and click run the program as administrator. UAC is turned off, so that shouldn't cause a problem. Any suggestions?
My Thrustmaster USB joystick doesn't work in flight mode, using windows 7 64 bit. Looked for a patch but couldn't find one. Does anyone have a solution?
