I've downloaded and re-downloaded the installation files via the GOG downloader to my Windows 7 Starter netbook. (The setup files will open correctly on the netbook.) They appear as orange icons in the folder, as well as when I move them to a thumb drive to put on the WinXP desktop. However, when I put the files onto the WinXP machine, the setup icons are no longer orange; they're just the generic application icon. (This does not happen with the games I had no problem installing - the icons remain orange on either computer.)
When I try to open the setup files in WindowsXP, I get a brief window of black which immediately closes. Is the system not recognizing the games? Is something forcing them to shut down before they can fully execute? I've downloaded the games at least three times now so I hope it's not corrupt files still.
Any help is appreciated! I could always play these games on the Netbook, but I'd really prefer to do it on a much more reasonably-sized screen and with a mouse.
