Windows 8 "this app can't run on your PC" error
« on: April 28, 2013, 01:32:47 AM »
I am trying to install MB Warband and Napoleon on my Windows 8 PC but get a "This app can't run on your PC" error when I click on the set up file. I tried downloading from all the mirrors listed on the MB website and have tried running each in Windows 7/XP/Vista compatibility modes to no avail.

Anyone else have this problem or a fix?

Thanks in advance!

I've been looking, I was just messing around.


So i had bought the digital copy from TW website, and got the app files to setup. However, when ran, they didnt work and gave me the This app cant run message.
I went, found an ISO image of the MB:WB and installed that ( version 1.1 ) and then found a patch from 1.1 > 1.153 ( the iso and patch were NOT from TW website ), then after a few minor changes, i ran it and vwallah , it worked.

Ill be posting the links to all i got soon, just trying to find them

Patch - http://www.strategyinformer.com/pc/mountbladewarband/patch/44048.html   ( Click DOWNLOAD FILE below, it'll be highlighted orange. )

http://thepiratebay.sx/torrent/5473160/Mount.and.Blade.Warband-SKIDROW-%5Btracker.BTARENA.org%5D  --- CD file.

I'm not promoting Pirate or anything of the such, i have bought the game, this was my way around the "This App Can't Run on this pc " message.

For a simpler solution you can turn off SmartScreen, go to Control Panel > System and Security > Action Center > click the Security drop down menu and then click change settings under Window SmartScreen.
