    Hi everybody or old games team seeing this. (Being re-edited for November 2021 build with learning upgrades that were released to fix compatibility issues with Windows 11-based systems).

    The old games team already has the latest version for Scooby-Doo! Case File 1: The Glowing Bug Man. However, it does work but fails on Windows Vista & above due to lack of run times & Indeo Codec. This ISO as of (version 3.5) will now work with Windows 8 & 10 Builds. (Warning 1 & 2).

    Warning 1: install Indeocodic which is required for windows 10. Might have Random underlining issues that prevent it to install reported for some users.
    Link below

    If the manual installation does not work please email me for SophieAyase’s version.

    Warning 2: SophieAyases’s version from that installer was rewritten & made even more aggressive attempts to remove the newer Indeocodic & force enable Indeo video Raw (yvu9).
    This might damage Windows 10 itself.

    Warning for Windows 8 & 10 users: Due to infrastructure security Changes by Microsoft that you will see a lot of kernel & runtime errors, Of how regsvr32 ir50_32.dll is hindered at the engineering level. If you click yes you might see massage error 227, or 643. You can safely click ok without issue. Then you will see searching for instances of Netscape. Please wait… after that is done to press the developer to install for components indeo audio encoder & codec. Indeo video Raw (yvu9) is also required for Scooby-doo case file 1 to work. Which is included in the installer.

    Coding changes: IV what I did was the following changes
    • IV now added Microsoft DirectX June 2010 under the installer. It is based on blackwingcat June 2010. Windows 2000 should Work. However Windows 2000 are no longer supported. I’ve only tested it on reader rabbit and Scooby-doo and just works.

    • Iv reconfigured Indeo Video 5.0, 4.0, or 3.2 codec to be detected on systems that are running on windows vista & Windows7. By looking for code C: WindowsSystem32Ir50.32.dll, IR.qc.dll or IR50.qck.dll,, Ir41.qc.dll Or Ir/.qcx.dll including Video 3.2 Ir32.dll.
    For Windows 8 & 10: it chicks for Indeo Audio Codec & Indeo Audio Encoder code.

    • Including C:WindowsSysWOW64 under 64-bit Windows if detected on Windows Vista & Windows 7 you will see this message you need to install Indeo(R) 5. Click OK to continue.

    • For Windows 8 & Above (Despite what this game claims It does not rely on Indeo Video 5.0. 4.0 or 3.2 codecs or C: WindowsSystem32Ir50.32.dll, IR.qc.dll or IR50.qck.dll,, Ir41.qc.dll, Ir/.qcx.dll including Video 3.2 Ir32.dll) instead it users Indeo Audio Codec. & Indeo video Raw (yvu9).

    The following components ware Upgraded from adobe acrobat 5 to version 9 if for any reason Adobe reader 9 becomes incompatible With Windows 10 use Foxit Reader. Or other .pdf software likes google chrome.

    I’ve also added 4 run-times Components from the Windows XP Environment that will work with Windows 8 & above. Sadly I forget what thaw ware. So you have to trust me that it is safe.
    I even adding and altering code under setup.exe and setup.ini Source for the installation framework to work under Windows above Vista. By doing this is to modernize the behavior of
    win32’s even rerouting existing code for a smoother experience with windows 10.

    Warning 1: The upgraded versions from that archive made quite a departure from its 2002 code. Functionality-wise is no longer compatible with the Windows 9x environment. As of Version 3.5. Windows 2000 or XP are not supported. They may well run – I Can no longer offer support for issues that occur when using the games under those systems.

  3. It’s not working. The game starts, but crashes as soon as you input a player name and click Play. It comes up with an error message saying to reinstall, but then automatically reopens to the start menu again.
