Mercs 1.1 Wininet.dll Installation Failed

Postby Havokq3 » Sun Jan 29, 2017 7:54 am

I have installed Mercs Win95 through MechVM on Windows 7 Pro SP1, and I am trying to patch to 1.1, but to no avail. When I run mpatch.exe and select 'Setup', then 'Continue>>', I receive an error message while it searches for the Mercs install directory. The message reads "WinINet.dll Redistribution Package: Installation Failed", and when I start the patched game, it lingers on a black screen before returning me to the desktop, with MechVM displaying "Process ended with 2ode 2" in the message window.

That's strange; I installed Mercs on XP through Windows Virtual PC, but upon patching, I receive the same error message. :?:

Case closed, the problem was that my disc already had v1.1 Windows, but the disc only says 1.05 on it. :roll:

Can someone tell me where to install this patch to?
Do I install it through MechVM? And if so, how?

Thanks!
