Windows 11 Insider Program and GR


Recommended Posts

I got GR working with DS and IT using the Steam version only after renaming dbghelp.dll to dbghelp-original.dll.

I tried installing with the Gold Edition disc version but had no luck.
I deleted dbghelp.dll and ran in compatibility mode but it would not even try to start and that was only GR. No DS or IT.

Early development stage for Windows 11 but so far so good.

Getting Windows 11 Dev version installed was a royal pain. The TPM(firmware version) and Secure Boot were in  my BIOS.
Not much to enabling in my case fTPM(AMD version) but I had a scare with the Secure Boot and enabled it incorrectly in the BIOS and had no display when it re-booted.
Fortunately I reset the BIOS taking out the CMOS battery for 5 minutes. Then I enabled Secure Boot correctly.

I also had to do a lot of trial and error getting signed up in the Windows Insider program.
I got Windows 11 installed but I could not say how with all the backup and restarts I had.
To me, Windows 11 is not that much different from Windows 10.

copy your installed Ghost Recon Gold Edition from the old system to an external hard drive I assume you are using the modified cd file then it should boot from any system.  Problems only seem to occur with the latest AMD drivers. If you have User Account Control enabled look in C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)
if there is a folder created by Red Storm Entertainment where Ghost Recon stores all settings and mods. I have my installation from 2004 and it runs everywhere.

I have never tried that. So I put the Red Storm Entertainment folder and contents on a thumb drive using a modified cd file and that is all there is to it? I do have a AMD card so that might be a problem.

I was watching a youtube video about W11, quite a lot of bad press because of the system requirements for Windows 11.

Maybe they will loosen the requirements before launch. 🤞
At the moment Intel 7th generation CPUs and before are not eligible and the same for AMD Ryzen 1000 series of CPUs and prior.
Neither is that old.

Check on a post I made: Install GR on Windows 10 with great graphics.

Dgvoodoo should resolve your issues when running and AMD card with updated drivers. I run this setup on Windows 10.
