As the title's thread says, I can't run Ys VI on my laptop. This is what happens:
- I install the game in the directory "C:\\FALCOM\\YS6_WIN" - When I'm going to run it, it does nothing. It's like I'm not even running the game, and also it doesn't pop-up a new window with "Error!" or saying me why I can't even run it.
It's the Windows 7 version (22.214.171.124) and my laptop also has Windows 7 (as it says the thread's title ). I can play on this laptop Xanadu Next fine and every Ys game that XSEED has released on Steam to date.
I also tried Doppiapunta & co's English patch and still gives me the same error . Any suggestions guys?

Well, I have the Ys VI XP version, and the problem Matron is having sounds exactly like the problem I had running XP Ys VI on Windows 7. Doppi's patch wouldn't work at first either. I used Falcom's support patch 126.96.36.199. falcom.com/ys6/support/s_prg_02.html Then it worked and I was able to install the English patch properly. Like Korzic said, I also use Japanese mode.
I know we have different versions of Ys VI, but your problem sounds just like mine, so I thought I'd make this post to try to help. If this doesn't help in some way, I'm unsure of what to do. Keep trying, though, I didn't give up, and found a solution that worked for me. (on windows 8 as well) Perhaps you could even try e-mailing Falcom about it if nothing else works.
Hi it sounds like what happens to me on my laptop when i do not run it in Japanese Unicode mode it acts like nothing is even there i get no messages or anything saying i cannot run it. Just to make sure have you tried changing your laptop to these settings? it may be all you need. All the japanese falcom games seem to require it i do not have any of the steam releases only the authentic PC import ones and they all need it

I'm so glad I did that writeup. I was proud of it. I don't usually write about technical things like that, since I lack skill in that area. But it came out of trying to get Ys VI to run on Win 7 for months.
I'll never forget sitting at a Kinko's computer late one night. I decided to search for new Ys stuff for no particular reason, and saw that Ys VI was coming out. There was a screenshot of Adol fighting the first boss, and I totally freaked out! It was then I decided that it was finally time to get my first computer. Matron starting this thread has made me want to play it again now. Rules VI.
