Yes, like I said, I was in a rush when I made that post, so my knowledge of how it worked was not completely clear. I've been looking at this morning, however, and I have a better understanding of what is going on.

 

Indeed, the files are in a compressed archive on the disc, inside main.z. It's not an UNIX archive as

gave me a link for, but it is an InstallShield 3.x archive, and can be opened using (Guess what?) UniExtract, namely, i3comp.exe. When opened, most of the game contents come out, such as IMusic, the AVIs, and the zbuffer folder. The rest is the uncompressed data on the disc.

 

I'm already working on the alternate installer, progress can be found

. I think a first version will be done this afternoon; recreating the Full, Minimal,  and Custom options will come later.

 

EDIT: I meant to ask, are there copies of LEGOLAND that have different layouts than mine? I always want to support as many versions as possible. If your disc is different, will you post an image of your disc root and/or a file tree?

 

EDIT 2: Also, if your disc as a PDF manual, say so as well, so I can install it if it exists on the disc.

 

EDIT 3: Installer released, download

Hello!

 

Thank you so so so much for posting the new installer, I've managed to get my old LEGOLAND installed :) It lets me sign in and start the game, but as soon as I click to start the tutorial the programme closes and says it has stopped responding. 

 

Any Ideas? I'm not great with computers so any help would be greatly appreciated :P

Try running it as an administrator. Right click LEGOLAND.EXE, click properties, go to "Compatibility" and check "Run as administrator". You can also run it as an admin from the right click menu, but doing it the other way makes it so you don't have to do that every time.

Good to know it worked for you, whichever one you used. :) And welcome to RRU! I hope you stay a while, you'll find whatever information you want on the classic LEGO games here.

First off, please make a new topic in the

if the Search doesn't yield any results so the thread can have a chance at staying on topic. ;)

 

Second, what MrEightThreeOne ninja'd me at saying. Running as Administrator sometimes helps with these things.

 

If that doesn't work, please report back with your OS, graphics card, and other system specs so we can better understand how to help you fix your issue. You can do this by opening the Run command (Windows key + r), typing 'dxdiag', pressing the 'Save all information' button, and pasting the contents in a spoiler.

I had LEGOLAND as a little girl, but I've since lost the disc. Only a year ago have I bought a rerelease copy of it that's compatible with Windows 7/8/8.1.

 

Iunno what settings the rerelease uses in order for it to be compatible right out of the gate, though, I'm afraid, but it works fine with my 64-bit Windows 8.1 PC. If you have the money to spare, maybe look into buying a re-release. I'm sure it won't be too much.

I got the game to install and it ran the menu properly, but as soon as I click the thumbs up to start the first tutorial the game crashes  :cry:

 

 

Any idea on how to fix this?

You've got all the compatibility settings setup? Running as Admin?

I had this problem only once, but my game started the second time I tried...

Try the above things if you haven't done it yet. (compatibillty for XP SP3)
