Installation fails with rlmfc.dll error
I have problems with the installation of Max Payne, on a new computer with a recent fresh installation of Windows 98 (second addition) - and full update patches from windowsupdate.

The installation gives errors, wil rlmfc.dll and then trying to run the program fails immediately. Details below.

Spec:

Windows98, second edition, + web updates.
AMD XP 2100+
512Mb ram
160Gb disk

I start with a full installation

It installs completely, to 100%, then give the "detecting system.." box, then after half a second the following box:

Ikernel

This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down.

If the problem persists, contact the program vendor.

Details:

| IKERNEL executed an invalid instruction in
| module RLMFC.DLL at 017f:02635a28.
| Registers:

I hit CLOSE, then immediately, another box:

| IKERNEL caused an invalid page fault in
| module MFC42.DLL at 017f:5f40626c.
| Registers:
| EAX=0269c9d0 CS=017f EIP=5f40626c EFLGS=00010202

Then get the "InstallShield Wizard Complete" message, which continues as normal from this point on.

Then, whenever you try to start the game, you immediatiely get :

Maxpayne

This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down.

If the problem persists, contact the program vendor.

I've ununstalled, rebooted, jumped up and down, and done all sortrs, and exactly the same thing happens each time.

Any help gratefully received.. I've wanted this program for ages - only just got a PC powerful enough, and it won't work!

(PS Bring out a unix version, and we won't have to suffer stuff like this!!)
Thanks in advance, Jamie

Re: Installation fails with rlmfc.dll error
This sounds tricky... I don't think I've met this kind of an error yet. The game's "autodetect settings" seems to crash during the install. A few questions:

Do you have DirectX8 installed?
If yes, then are you able to run "dxdiag" from Start Menu\Run prompt?
If yes, are you able to run the "Test Direct3D" from the DxDiag Display Tab?
If yes, then please email me your dxdiag information. Also, please send me a screenshot of your installation folder contents, or preferably from the Command Prompt do something like "cd c:\program files\max payne", "dir /s >files.txt" and send me the files.txt as an attachment.

Re: Installation fails with rlmfc.dll error
> Do you have DirectX8 installed?

Yes, 8.1

> If yes, then are you able to run "dxdiag" from Start Menu\Run prompt?

Yes, although I have to skip some of the system tests on startup, as it freezes otherwise.

> If yes, are you able to run the "Test Direct3D" from the DxDiag Display Tab?

Yes, works fine.

> If yes, then please email me your dxdiag information. Also, please send me a screenshot of your installation folder contents, or preferably from the Command Prompt do something like "cd c:\program files\max payne", "dir /s >files.txt" and send me the files.txt as an attachment.

Ok, coming in an email
Thanks, Jamie

Re: Installation fails with rlmfc.dll error
UPDATE: I've solved the problem!

Apparently, it's to do with a conflict between the SoundBlaster Live!, and the DirectX routines - Soundblaster live installs a file c:\windows\system\vmm32\vmcpd.vxd that is incompatible with direct x.

I regressed this file to the one on the windows98 disk, and everything seems fine now. - Also "dxdiag" doesn't hang.

The weird thing is, it's only certain aspects of direct x that were at fault - i.e. games such as half-life and blue-shift played without a hitch.

More information here:

and here:

You may want to add this to your problem FAQ/knowledge base etc.. especially as Max Payne is the only program I have that actually gets tripped up by this problem!

Cheers,
Jamie
