How To install SF1 with Win x64 (XP, Vista Win7)

What you've got to do:

Step 1: get yourself 2 different official patches to SF1, these are
patch 1.38 http://www.4players.de/4players.php/dow ... h_138.html and
patch 1.52 http://www.4players.de//4players.php/do ... 44117.html

Step 2: Download the official SpellForce.exe (v.1.54) that is free of the copy protection system from -> here. http://snorre.jowood.de/~community/Spel ... lForce.zip

Step 3: insert SF1 installation disk into optical drive (but DO NOT start installation yet; cancel auto-play).

Step 4: Do start patch 1.38 - it will detect that no installation of SF1 is present and will start the game's installation off the CD.

Step 5: Apply patch 1.52 once step 3 is completed.

Step 6: Replace the spellforce.exe with the copy-protection-free one (-> step 2).

Step 7: start playing SF1 and enjoy

Hi, I have a little problem when installing SF1 (original, non-gold edition), I have both tried what you have written here and on XP os, but the problem is that it installs fin until the last 10 secs where it installs Spellforce.exe. Says it can't open d:\bin\spellforce.exe.
Any suggestion? i really want to play this game again.

Hello.
It looks like you cant read from CD,
try clean CD & the reader head in CD, and try copy the whole CD to your hard-drive
into an installation folder and install from there.
As a last resort if you can't copy the sf.exe file either, you can try and download the exe file,
place it under sf/bin and then try to install
