the bluestack it isn’t compatible with my windows vista ultimate… can anyone help me to figure it out or release new version that can be suitable with windows vista ultimate…
Why must i download 5 games before i can use bluestacks
It is because some of the versions of Bluestacks have gone premium in some countries. It either asks for money or suggest you to install some apps before using it.
I can’t run Bluestacks on Windows 7 Ultimate x32. It stops before the green bar fills up.
What is your system configuration especially RAM and Graphics card?
–Processor=Pentium(R) Dual-coreCPU E5800
–System type: 32-bit OS
Graphics card: Intel(R) G41 Express Chipset
Try updating your Graphic card drivers, .NET Framework and Direct X.
I tried updating my graphics card, but it says its up-to-date;
My .NET version is 4.5.1, is there a newer version needed?;
And, it seems I don’t have DirectX installed yet, should I do so?
Yes, install it.
I just found out that DirectX is pre-installed within Windows 7. Run > dxdiag
My Graphics card (or is it a Display Adapter??) is an Intel(R) G41 Express Chipset and its up to date.
What now? 🙁
I would suggest you to increase your RAM to 4 GB.
Thanks for the replies. I guess I can’t run this on my own PC. It worked instantly on a Windows 8 PC, but its in my workplace T_T. Thanks again.
Always my Pleasure, Singko. And thanks for your feedbacks. 🙂
