  1. Would love any help if anyone has been able to get it working on Windows 11! Installed the Windows 10 patch. Just gets to the page where it asks if I want to launch and then nothing happen, no trace of it in Task Manager either.

    • Got it running after installing Win 10 patch by running it on compatibility mode for Windows 8, 16-bit colors and as administrator.

  2. Got it to run but it lags super bad whenever I cast any spells. Wingardium Leviosa is brutal. Changing the resolution or graphics doesn’t help.

    • it’s not a 4 digit code. more like 24 or somewhere around that number. If you dont have a game manual yourself, you can easily find a code online to get it working.

  3. I can’t get this game to work on Windows 10 for the life of me. Choppy dialogue, bad controls, and crashes at the start of the Flipendo challenge.

    • I got it to work by going into Display Settings and changing the refresh rate to 60 Hz. Still not working perfectly though. Someone needs to create a “Remastered” version of this game similar to MetallicaFan212’s mod for Chamber Of Secrets.

  4. Everything downloaded succesfully, I now have the HP games icon on my desktop. However, when I run as administrator and click yes on the “Do you want this app from an unknown etc” nothing happens afterwards. No loading, no error message, nothing. Nothing opens. Please help…

    • Open Task Manager, press Details and find Harry Potter. There should be an app below it that you should end for it to start the game. Sorry if this doesn’t work.

  5. Hi, I’ve tried installing and using the game, however it still doesn’t work regardless of the instructions above. When I try to run Autorun.exe as administrator, my pc says that it can’t open the file and then that it can’t determine the executable name and that it’s possibly a corrupt file. Adjusting the compatibility doesn’t work either and when I come as far as to see the start of the game and actually press ‘start’, it either just disappears and doesn’t work or it asks whether I allow the game to make changes to the hard drive. When I allow that, it still doesn’t work. Help?

    • Are you sure you have downloaded, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Windows 10 Fix file above and replace those files ? Same thing happened to me before I replace them
