Disney Hercules, problems with Windows 10

Several users have reported problems with Hercules on Windows 10. This is a Windows 95 game, so it's not packaged with an emulator. Our tests on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 didn't show any problem, but on Windows 8 and 10 you may receive an error "Hercules is not installed. Run Setup from the CD". If you have already tried running the .REG file included, there is not much else you can do. We are looking for a solution and we will let you know.


The good news is if you have a Mac, we have prepared and added a Mac version of Hercules (using Wine). It's not perfect but it works, just remember to follow the instructions provided.

Use Alt+Enter to switch from full screen to window. Try several times if it doesn't work. Many users solved the problem this way

My screen just flashes black and back to Desktop. Like nothing has been opened. Tried to set up compatibility settings but also not working :(

You have to put this: "Wow6432Node" between "SOFTWARE" and "Disney Interactive" in the HERC.REG file, and it will work In Shaa Allah. that all

.Hey people, I had the same issue too. The game opened and kept going back to the desktop screen in a flash. I reinstalled it and then every time i opened the game i pressed Alt+Enter quickly. Now it works, but on a small screen. PS- I am using Windows 10

If somone has problem to get full screen in the game, just change it to 320x240 screen resolution in Nvidia control panel.

Just open and press Alt+Tab and then return to the game then change the display quickly

thank you a lot but you must show how exactly like that: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Disney Interactive]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Disney Interactive\Hercules]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Disney Interactive\Hercules\1.00]
