Launching Blood's setup.exe

I got to the 9th step and when I tried to d-click setup only a black screen flashes for a second and disappears. I tried open the setup in the cmd window, but this appears:

Spawn Error: Error 0

Tried to d-click setmain, but that doesn't work either.

That is a strange one. Try deleting blood.cfg then launching setup again?

Reinstalling Windows XP helped. Thanks nevertheless.

setup.exe ought to run no matter what, if I'm not mistaken.

ok if you right click on setup.exe you'll get the sub menu with "run with VDMS" click on that to setup the sound properly if you just click on setup it will configure the normal sound card instead of the soundblaster Emulator but if it's a graphics problem with setup using 640x480 or higher you need a winxpfix file to help with running with VGA graphics on win XP

Althendar you'll need to create a BAT file for Blood to run properly I'll give you an example for you to follow I hope this helps


after that save it as BLOOD.BAT

then click on the BAT file and it will run the files at the same time
this can be used the same with Duke Nukem 3D and Shadow Warrior
just change the game directory to run the game you want.

but make sure you load nolfb first before the games execution.
