When I try to play Final Destination I get this error: "Windows\System32\AutoExec.nt. System file not suitable for running MS-Dos and Microsoft applications.": This problem is caused by Windows XP service pack 2; it seems that this service pack occasionally erases operating system files that are required by quite a few applications to run. The problem is explained in detail on Microsoft's website They give a solution but it's a little complicated. I would recommend downloading and installing this fix. You should be able to download and run that file; it will fix the problem by installing the files you need. However, once it runs there is one other thing you need to do. To make that permanent, go into c:\windows\system32\ and make autoexec.nt, config.nt, and command.com read only, they will stick after a reboot that way. Otherwise Windows XP will delete those files thus making the problem happen again. I don't know why Windows XP insists on erasing files it must have to run, but there you go.
When I try to click on a button on a panel inside the game (the red and green buttons, for instance) nothing happens: The game requires that small fonts be turned on; if large fonts are enabled the game will not work properly. To see what your fonts are set to:
1) Click Start -> Control Panel. A window will appear.
2) Double-click the Display icon. A window entitled "Display Properties" will appear.
3) Click on the Settings tab. It should be the last tab to the right, near the top of the window.
4) Click the Advanced button (located in the bottom-right-hand corner of the window).
5) In the DPI Setting option, make sure that Normal (96 DPI) is selected. Any other value will cause problems when playing Final Destination.
When some movies are played, I get the error "Automation error: ClassFactory cannot supply requested class": This happens when the codec needed to play the .avi files in Final Destination are either not installed or corrupted. To fix this you will have to:
1) Download this game patch to your computer
2) Run the file (after it downloads) by double-clicking on it.
3) Make sure that the directory specified in the "Unzip To Folder:" textbox is the one where you installed Final Destination. By default, Final Destination is installed to C:\Program Files\Cyragon\Final Destination\. (If that is where you installed the game then you don't need to change anything.)
4) Make sure the "Overwrite files without prompting" box is checked and click the "Unzip" button. The patch will then install. Once it finishes the problem should be solved!
The walkthrough tells me to use a computer in the energy storage room that doesn't seem to be on, and it doesn't say how to turn it on: This omission is fixed automatically by the latest patch, which is available at the top of this page. Once you have installed the patch, open up Final Destination and go back into the solution for puzzle #4. The information you need has been added to the second-to-last paragraph.
