Hi,

I decided to install my old copy of farcry to see that it doesn't install. I went on the web and read on several forums that a 64bit patch is needed. Later I read that this patch is only for xp64. Is there any patch for vista 64 and if so where can I find it?

Thanks

Ryan

The 64bit patch will work on Vista too. I just started up the game with the 64 bit executable to make sure. However, I installed the game in xp (as well as the patch which also works as a no cd crack), and just surfed for the game executable.

That's interesting. I ran Crysis on Vista 64bit without any patching. Just installed it and it ran like clockwork. Maybe newer retail sets have the patch included? :p

Opps, sorry, I'm such an airhead. You were talking about the older Far Cry, not Crysis. :na: 

Still, it should run fine. :p

Install 32 bit version of Far Cry! Then install the patch. Then run 64 bit exectuable. Far Cry was not originally 64 bit :)

I think the farcry 64bit patch was xp 64bit only, not 100% but i would be shocked if it worked on vista 64
back in the days of the AMD first got the 64cpus..

This is probably the single most helpful statement in this entire thread.

I am having the exact same problem! I am getting allthese stupid suggestions but nothing works. I can't get it to install, in any or no compatability mode. I have an HP Pavilion dv7-1135nr with dual 2.0 AMD Turion RM-70s', 4GB of RAM, 750GB HDDs', Running Vista 64 Home Premium SP1, Because SP2 is ***! actually VISTA is ***! I want my XP SP2 Back at least it's stable. And I want one of my best games I paid good $$$$ for, FarCry, not Crysis. I want to be able to play FarCry -----------------J.D.
