jags1971: I have the original version of Heroes 3 on CD. How can I play it on my newer pc with windows vista? Or can I play it online somewhere? Any info would be great.

thanks
The obvious answer would be "buy here, download, install, enjoy", which is what I did. I think the odds are good it will come up during the winter sale.

Or you can go looking for relevant forum threads here to see if anyone else has already tried to use the CD on Vista. Also try a google search.

Or try running in some kind of compatibility mode.
Does Galaxy install the universal update automatically? Is there a way to verify?
Tried running the update manually, got: "Game installation not found" error.

Thanks!

Im having the exact same problem here too...i think it's because the earlier versions of the GalaxyClient had a difirrent path to the game folder.

Trying to install "Update 2.0.1.17" after game is installed and can "play". Gives me "Game installation not found please reinstall". Thoughts?

Either you've already got the latest version you don't need this patch.

I don't have this game on GOG, nor do I use Galaxy, but an easy way to check is to download the standalone installer and see if it's 2.0.1.17 already.

Or it could be a questin of Galaxy not finding the game. Did you install the game itself through Galaxy?

The version is 4.0.0 in the exe details and also in the help file in the install directory. I really would love to have the patch as it freezes about every 15 to 30 minutes. :(

As others above had the exact issue and it's clearly still not a working patch. I'd love for GOG to get it going! I'll buy another copy if they'll look at it. :)

That's a different version number. You want to check the GOG installer number. Go to your account
https://www.gog.com/account
Click on the game, and then check the installer under downloads

Also another thing, contcting support directly is probably a better way of getting a response than posting in this thread.

GOG, can you integrate the universal patch to full installer? After 3 years, I see no point of having 2 separate files. :P

That's not true. I've been playing for over a hundred hours with the most recent updates (no mods, not even the HD mod) and random map works perfectly fine.
