Hmm... By the way, do you have the %windows%\ubisoft directory? Maybe the game is searching ubi.ini and can't find it. P4_installer only copy files, not creating .inis and registry settings. If not - maybe this is the source of the Pro Rally 2001 error.
prorally2001_demo.exe unzips into folder c:\games/prorally/prorally2001.exe
RallySetup.exe - said need glide 3.03 - fixed with nglide, RallySetupsound.exe - says dont work under winnt - disable prorally2001.exe - opens black Dos window, then windows error message comes WinMain 3D acceleration hardware not detected.
The ubisoft patch p4 installer asks for CD - this is the Demo it dont have a cd and it dont have the same install path. The Demo dont install it just unzips the folder and you have to make your own shortcut from exe and put on your desktop. The patch ProRally.exe 912 kb i renamed to ProRally2001.exe 812 kb. The error message was the same before and after i changed ProRally.exe compatibilty mode win 95, win98/me, 640x480
I have looked for full game is one used in second hand shop for 2 euro. will try obtain when funds are available. I have always played demos. I bought Colin Mcrae Rally 2, 2005, Dirt, but those purchases were let downs. i was used to playing cm2Demo and I didnt like that i had to drive for hours in the full game to get to the stages i had already driven in the demo. cm2005 wasnt good. Dirt was unplayable without a steering wheel - talk about money down the crapper.
