My windows 7 ultimate 64bit got corrupted so I reinstalled it. There are tons of games in the hard disk which used to run like a charm before reinstallation.
The problem is,although, the games are in the hard disk, none of them is running. Some of which are giving this '.dll ot that .dll is missing from your computer' error while others saying that side-by-side configuration is incorrect.
I installed latest nvidia graphics card drivers '260.99' but nothing worked. Also I installed C++ 2005 (x 86 and x 64) and C++ 2008 (x 64) but none it worked for me.
I also cannot reinstall games bcoz most of them are borrowed from my friend and looks like they won't be giving me anymore.
AMD Phenom ii x4 945 @ 3ghz
nvidia geforce 9800gt 1gb gddr3
4 gb ddr2 ram
seagate 500gb hdd
asus m4a78-em/1394 mobo
Microsoft Windows 7 ultimate 64bit
I too have original copies like gta 4, codmw2 , codwaw, microsoft fsx, far cry 2, call of duty black ops (running without a problem), world of warcraft, mafia 2. Games like crysis, cod mw1, fallout 3, bf bc2 are borrowed from my friend and I am talking about these(pirates) only which are installed on win 7, also gta4 and mafia 2 too are not working. not only I but thousands of gamers too borrow some games from friends, as what can I do if it is not available in the market and mind is excited 120%.
