Windows 7: File too large to handle

File too large to handle

Hi everyone

I'm trying to install HAWX which I've mounted via POWER ISO.
the splashscreen shows up but whenever I click on install, it DOS screen will quickly pop and advise "FILE TOO LARGE TO HANDLE"

I've tried extracting all the contents and had it saved on my HDD but yields the same error.

I'm just wondering if anyone had the same issue before and how was it resolved?

Thanks a lot!

Under the assumption,
The image your using is LEGALLY backup-ed image.

Have you tried burning it to a disk?

If its not a legal back up i suggest deleting the image from your computer.

Yeah, well... The deal with GGF probably wont go thru since theyre in big debt, so its unlikely to happen that PB would turn legal.

Well since they are in debt,
They could just sell all of the information of the users to the appropriate authorities....

I used to be a big fan of flight simulator but I haven't played since the 05 version LOL.
Right now Steam has both Pacific storms for 15 bucks. Together they are about 120 bucks
