  1. I see. This game unfortunately might be extremely difficult to get running on Windows. It's worth a shot, but unfortunately not all old Windows games can be run on modern versions of Windows. You can try though by just mounting the disc in Windows (just double-click on it) and then running the setup from the virtual CD drive.
  2. It depends on if the game was originally for Windows or MS-DOS. What are the system requirements for the game? What year was it released?
  3. Can you take a screenshot of your LaunchBox\Core folder while Big Box is running?
  4. First off, please try shutting Big Box down and rebooting. Most of the time a restart/reboot fixes this particular issue.
  5. Thank you for the positive feedback guys. It does really help after having a stressful Saturday like this. I'm very glad we got it resolved.
  6. Please see the post above to install 11.15 (manually, if needed). That should solve the issue for you.
  7. So most likely in that case, it is a data issue, and usually a data corruption issue. The good news is that LaunchBox always makes backups of data, unless you actively turn it off. You should have various backups available under LaunchBox\Backups. What you can do is make a copy of your LaunchBox\Data folder (so that you have it available), then you can restore the latest backup from the Backups folder over top of your Data folder. If the latest doesn't work, you can go to the previous one, and so on and so forth. Does that makes sense?
  8. No worries; we definitely appreciate the support, but we would never ask anyone to pay more than once.
  9. Yes; if you would please, let's create another thread. I'm guessing you're running into a different issue than an anti-virus issue, but I don't know for sure. Can you create a new topic and call me out with @Jason Carr?
  10. Also, one last thing: we are committed to making sure that new official versions of the software do not trip Microsoft Defender (Windows' built-in anti-virus), because we feel like it's the best solution out there, as it generally doesn't act like the boy who cried wolf, reporting millions of false positives, and for the most part it just works. However, sadly, it would be impossible for us to commit to eliminating false positives with every third-party anti-virus product out there. This is just our 2 cents: if you are using a third-party anti-virus product, we recommend uninstalling i
  11. What anti-virus product(s) are you running?

  13. Unfortunately there's not much we can do about that. As stated previously, it's a nightmare avoiding different false positives on different anti-virus engines. You might just need to add an Avast exclusion for it. Avast was not triggered when I tested the files on Virus Total, but sometimes Avast does time out during the tests, Virus Total doesn't always work perfectly.
  14. Alright, 11.15 is out now. Apparently all we needed to do was recompile and it seems that it no longer trips Microsoft Defender. Just bad luck with that false positive I guess (but what else is new). If you're unable to auto-update to 11.15, you can manually download it here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wsflw0p0iu8g3o4/LaunchBox-11.15-Setup.exe?dl=0 Once downloaded, you can just manually install it over top of your existing LaunchBox folder, and it will keep all your games and settings.
