Installing Drakan on Windows 11 SOLVED

Post by mlurie »

The Drakan installer does not seem to like Windows 11. After launching the installer from the CD image, SETUP.EXE justs hang in the background forever. However, after several hours of troubleshooting, I found a solution.

Restart Windows 11 in Safe Mode with Networking. The installer runs normally in Safe Mode. I also ran the Community Patch in Safe Mode which installed just fine. After rebooting, Drakan runs perfectly at 1080p.

Thank you to all of those who have kept this game alive for all these years. It definitely holds up.
