  1. Writing this from an xp virtual machine. The reason it refuses to run is because the installer sets a registry key that points the install directory, and naturally since this is a rip of the install folder, your system is unlikely to have that key.

    In order to get it to run:
    1. Open regedit.
    2. Navigate to “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Argonaut Software\Croc”, which should already exist if you have already ran CrocRun.exe.
    3. Right click and hit “New” > “String Value”.
    4. Name it “Directory” (without quotes, naturally).
    5. Double click your new “Directory” key and copy or write the path to the game files into the “Value data” form. For example mine is “C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Downloads\Croc_Legend_of_the_Gobbos_Win_Files_EN\Game Files”, again without quotes.

    That should get CrocRun.exe to stop complaining.

    It still doesn’t run for me because it requires like some old ass version of direct3d or something. But on modern windows, that might not be an issue, it may run fine in compatibility mode. If not you can try dgVoodoo or some other similar graphics api wrapper. It does come with a software renderer but I can’t get that to work either. I might reply to this with an update if I manage to get it running properly but maybe not.

  2. Tried the following instructions:
    Download and Extract Croc_Legend_of_the_Gobbos_Win_Files_EN.7z
    Launch CrocRun.exe
    Play the game

    When I tried to launch CrocRun.exe, the only option available was to “Install Croc!”, but when I selected that, I got an error, “Unable to find installation binary on install CD”.

  3. neither the zip nor the .iso work. when clicking “install croc” in the launch menu after running CrocRun.exe in the zip file, there’s a message saying “Fatal message from Croc! Unable to find installation binary on install CD”. after mounting the .iso and running autorun.exe, clicking “install croc” in the launch menu does nothing. any solution?
