WaveMix Problem

by rgfitz / February 26, 2005 12:04 AM PST

This is pretty trivial but I will post it anyway.

My grandaughter has a Madeline Creative Wonders game on my computer that she hasn't played for months.

She tried it yesterday and we get a WaveMix error:

"This Application uses WaveMix.DLL which has not been installed correctly. WaveMix.DLL must be in the windows system directory: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM
and wavemix.ini must be in the windows directory:

Searches mostly point to PINBALL problems but it runs correctly.

Downloading the .dll and .ini files and installing them does not fix the problem.

I suspect the recent windows updates from SP2 onwards did something.

Why are you thinking it?s trivial, I don?t know. It doesn?t seems so because:
- You are aware that the game it?s from windows 3.1 days, aren?t you ?
- The author company apperas as vanished.

Anyway, try the usual approach it?s to unuinstall it. After that, reinstall it and use the compatibility mode. For details. Read:

Thanks for the reply.

I tried the compatability mode before posting.

The CD is now in the trash.

I probably should have mentioned that I keep my laptop configured the same as my desktop for backup. The program was installed and ran on both computers in the past.

It fails to run on either one now and produces the same error.
