Hello fellas :)

I’m new to THAW (but spent a lot of time with playing THPS back in the days) and would love to play THAW at our "retro" LAN parties.

So I did some investigation and came across THE-MOD v0.1, THAW Launcher 1.0.0.5 and of course the official 1.01 patch as the essential files (did I miss something?).
Now I deeply hope, that you can tell how to install them and what should be noted furthermore. :)

What have I done so far:
Fresh installation of THAW (US) and applied patch 1.01 and copied over the reloaded THAW.exe.

Afterwards I’ve copied all the files from the mod 0.1 to the corresponding (sub) directories (overwritten cas_common_e.pak.wpc and levelselect.pak.wpc).

Finally I’ve put the most recent THAWLauncher.exe (1.0.0.5) to “C:\Programme\Aspyr Media, Inc\THAW\Game” and tm_e.pab.wpc + tm_e.pak.wpc + qb_e.pab.wpc + qb_e.pak.wpc ("shipped with" THAW Launcher 1.0.0.5) to “C:\Programme\Aspyr Media, Inc\THAW\Game\data\pak” (overwritten to old ones).

Unfortunately there’s always an “not a valid win 32 application”-error when I try to execute the THAWLauncher.exe :cry:

Did I something wrong?

My OS for playing THAW: Windows XP SP3 32-bit

Please help :(

I think gone dropped support for Windows XP on his latest launcher version, Either that or it requires some older version of .NET Framework, Since I also get that error when trying to run it on XP, Haven't yet tried it on Windows 7 or 8 though.

It wasn't dropped I just lost the code so fixing this issue is out of the question without a full rewrite.
What I believe to be the problem is a .Net package that isn't supported in WinXp. This version was created after I upgraded to VS2013 which defaulted to that .Net framework version.
I helped JaneSullivan via PM and think they're good now.
