  1. That would make it convenient to not have to use the disk every time. I get 5 or more computers running GR at the same time and haveing to switch the disk to all the computers is super annoying honestly!
  2. -Rocky- xD I thought I was the only one that figured that out. And now your telling me someone else already had it solved long ago! Oh man. Well guess the game works now and thats what was important...
  3. How to fix Ghost Recon from not starting on windows 8.1. How to get Ghost recon to work windows 8.1. 2001 ghost recon not working on windows 8.1. problem solved KB3086255 is the update that destroys Ghost Recon in windows 8.1 The prosses was a bit tedious, installing and uninstalling updates to track down which one, but in the end it made it really nice not to have to install a fresh version of windows 8.1 and loose all your stuff on your PC. So just to confirm with you all, if you have windows 8.1 and a disk of GR, uninstalling the security update ( KB3086255 ) will fix Ghost Recons not starting problem! If you want to uninstall this update for yourself to fix your old beloved Ghost Recon game this is how you do it: you type into the search (view installed updates) and from there its easy, once you click on that it pops up the list of all the updates Microsoft installed on your pc and you right click on the update KB3086255 and click uninstall, then reset your computer, done! Congratulations, now you can use your disk becouse you just fixed your problem!
  4. Hi everyone. Now that I have time to work on GR because its the weekend I have been trying all your guy's suggestions. Here's a little update. All the ideas you guys gave me didn't work 😭 so I tried something that none of u guys suggested xD I had my little brother install a fresh windows 8.1 ( thank you 5kurz for telling everyone here that a fresh windows 7 runs GR on the disk and you don't need steam ) that made me really 😊 GR works on a fresh 8.1 install, as long as I don't let the computer do any windows updates. Now all I have to do Is find what update brakes GR. I'll update you guy's once I find that little piece of junk that caused all this!!!
  5. 5kurz thanks, I'll give that a shot! Wombat50 also gave me some tips privately. So if they work I'll let the form know as soon as I can!
  6. Do you still think it could be the codec? What do I do to fix it?
  7. Does anyone here use a disc still? literally two years ago my disc worked on all of my 8.1 machines. Thanks again for replying wombat 50 hope someone can help me solve this problem. I don't think this matters much because I have tried many different machines with and without dedicated graphics cards and they all do the same thing double click on GR, admin pops up, do you want to allow the following Program (lolyloly), and then I click yes, the screen goes black for 2 seconds and then the black goes away, then nothing happens!!! I really don't want to get the steam version. Wombat50 you said (There is a work around but it is considered illegal. The Steam version is the only legal option.) What do I do???
  8. I am installing GR from a disk but on windows 8.1. I like 8.1 much more then windows 10 Because it still lets u do home group and works better with other computer's on the network. I do have newer graphics cards in my computers and from what you guys are saying, maybe they are too new for GR? I ran GR on my older windows 8.1 laptops that had older graphics cards non dedicated graphics cards just vram in the motherboard. Thank you all for replying but a special thanks to wombat you sound like you're on the right track! (In reply to Wombat50 Another issue is installing GR with a disc version on Win7 and 10. Microsoft did something that messes with the Digital Rights Management on the discs and the game will not launch. The only legal alternative is to buy the Steam version.) And another reason why I switched to 8.1 was because Windows 10 was having a problem with running GR also Windows 7 so I went Windows 8.1 and it worked like 2 years ago. So it sounds like that (digital Rights Management ) thing. Originally I was thinking maybe 8.1 came out with a similar update to cause the same problem. And the original reason why I have a disc is because my Dad bought it a while ago but I don't want to do the steam version because I like the fact that I can modify the files very easily with the disc version and I can just install it on all of my computer's as many times as I want. I like to play like Five Guys in the same room! What are the steps you guys would do if you were in my position installing Ghost Recon from the desk on 3 windows 8.1 computers and one Windows 10 computer and they all act the same way, install goes good, icon shows up on your desktop, you double-click it, it acts like it's going to try for a second and then just quits. 😣 and all your hopes to play this fantastic game goes down the drain 😭 I'm at work rn. Sorry if I made any errors I will correct them once I'm free
  9. Hello GR team! I have been asked to wright my problem here. I have 4 computer I have downloaded GR on I only downloaded the first GR just to see if it works on 8.1 and windows 10. Turns out it won't run on any of my pcs, 3 are 8.1 and one is 10. This is what it does once I click on the application icon and the auto run play button. Shows the Circle loading for a second and then it goes away and the game does nothing. I was talking to my brother yesterday and I asked him if we ever tried on windows 7 and he said he did try it on Windows 7 and also didn't work a couple of months ago. Funny enough a year or two ago I had it working on 8.1 and also Windows 7 and then also XP Service Pack 3. It worked great so I'm not sure why recently it's just not working when I download it. Kind of weird my old monster truck Madness even works on my 8.1 and Windows 10 perfect! Just was playing five player multiplayer custom maps and everything! Monster truck Madness pretty fun! Anyway hope someone can direct me to the proper steps to take on fixing this problem with 2001 GR not working! 😌
