Windows 7: Hold'em help not working under 64bit windows

Hold'em help not working under 64bit windows

I've got two questions.

One, when trying to install the game Texas Hold'em (vista edition), the help does not work under windows 7 64bit. The game itself runs/plays fine but the help doesn't, comes an error about help not found. Now I followed the install directions perfectly. I checked the path where the help files are stored (C:\Windows\Help\Windows\en-US) and it shows the game's help file listed (holdem).

Now here's the twist, everything works perfectly when I install it to a 32bit system. The game setup/install folders has both 32bit and 64bit files and the install.bat file detects which system type's files are needed and copies them to there locations without fail.

Two, I try to install the update Windows6.1-KB917607-x64, which is support for old style help files but it displays the error "data invalid Error code 0x8007000d" instead. I downloaded the update again, thinking it was corrupted but it still displays the same thing. The 32bit version installed perfect on my pc.

The offending pc in question is a Acer netbook that has Win 7 home premium 64bit installed. It's not even mine, It's my girlfriend's.

Hi fordman83 Welcome to Windows 7 Forums Your problem seems to be with Windows Activation . So you might be better to post a new thread under Windows Update and Activation as more experienced experts in this area would be able to see your post there and offer their assistance

Well I solved my second question. Seems my installation file was corrupt after all. Downloaded it from a different site and voila it installed without complaints.

The Texas Hold'em help file is still not working under 64bit windows however so that one is still open. I wonder if maybe the help file itself is the problem since both the included 32bit and 64bit versions with the install package are the same size. I thought the 64 bit one would be a little larger but maybe not.
I've no way to really test this though

Why all the fuss over a help file for a poker game?

Everyone is dealt 2 cards, bets, 3 card flop, bets, 1 card turn, bets, 1 card river, bets, showdown, best hand wins.


Vista edition on Windows 7.... hmmm!
