MechCommanderGold Registry Key Win7 x64

Oct 25, 2014#1

Hey everyone! Just got back into MCG and managed to install it onto my Win7 x64 OS by copying the ISO contents. Works fine except I am unable to add custom solo missions through the MCXTRACT tool as I don't have the registry key required for it to work.

Does anyone have a fix for this or perhaps the Registry key so that I can start adding solo maps?

Please Respond!

Here is the registry key for the mission editor.
Apparently all the key does is point where the installation directory of Mech Commander is.

I have done some testing with no avail on Win7 x64. I changed the registry key to where I have MCX located, and it still crashes "MCEditor MFC Application has stopped working...". I have also tried using compatibility modes with MCEditor.exe (Win95, and Win98/ME).
My guess is the editor is trying to call upon some old library (function) that has been modified or abandoned in newer versions of Windows.

The only way I got the editor to work is running/installing it in a Win95/98 virtual machine.
