I have searched for information on this subject, to no avail, so perhaps someone can point me in the right direction or even have the answer in their own pocket.
GPL is installed on my external HDD and has been thus for years.
It has always performed faultlessly. I open it up with GEM and the use the various features of that program to pick and choose which mod I wish to play (from 1955 through 1969 plus GTs and Can-Am).
Never had a problem with GEM in all the time that I have been using it.
The PC into which my HDD is plugged has been with me for several years now and again, it has been ultra-reliable.
Two days ago I bought a Windows 10 PC - nothing flash, mostly intended just for office work, emailing and browsing.
I wondered how GPL would perform on it so plugged in the HDD.
Clicked on the GEM icon - the exact same icon which I have clicked on for the past several years without failures - and I get a "Fatal Error" message.
Clicked on one of the GPL .exe files for one of the mods and GPL started up without any dramas.
Played the game for a few minutes, backed out and clicked on GEM again.
Clicked on another GPL mods's .exe file and.....no dramas. Everything ran as per normal without any faults whatsoever.
Ditto and ditto and ditto for every other GPL mod, from the original all the way through to 1955.
They all work fine but I cannot pick and choose which ones to use or which circuit to run because I cannot get GEM to fire up!!
So GPL certainly runs under Windows 10 but for some obscure reason it doesn't like my GEM.
Any ideas, anyone?
