    anyone having trouble with character creation, I solved this problem by creating a new account. Dunno why it worked, but one of my girlfriends 2 accounts simply cannot make characters, while the other, on the same computer, works fine.

    The thing is, i've installed and successfully run maplestory on windows 7 on 3 computers (2 laptops and a desktop (my girlfriend's, borther's and sister's if you REALLY care)) but the computer i'm using now just doesn't want to run it. could be a specs thing, but this computer is so similar to my brother's that i doubt that's the case. Tried running in compatability mode for XP sp3, but havent tried vista sp2 or bypassing the website yet. anyway, I hope the first part helps some people :D

    EDIT: tried those two too, no joy.

    Ok i use windows 7 and Maplestory runs just fine. I disabled the transparency in themes section also I got rid of Norton (it sucks anyway) and I use Mcaffee. I have it like this on 4 other laptops and no issues with Maplestory at all. I hope this helps everyone.

    Edit: Windows 7 Home Premium AMD Sempron 2.10 ghz with 4 gigs of ram

    I don't know if someone posted this yet or not, but my problem is either i'm not right-clicking on the correct thing or I simply don't have the compatibility option because in any of the tabs at the top it says stuff like General, Sharing, etc but it never has the Compatibility tab. What can I do?

    PS Step-by-step directions would be wonderful because I totally don't understand computers

    okay I fixed my own problem, had to click on it before i right-clicked on it. anyways I found that when I went to change the Compatibility, it already WAS on Windows XP [SP3]. I clicked Run as Administrator, and I get the same *&#*^$ message that says:
    This program has known compatibility issues.
    Then it tells me to look online -__- no sh!t.
    So, i went and checked everything i could right-click on and change the Compatibility, put it all to admin and WXP[sp3] and it STILL doesnt work.
    I tried Vista (no SP).
    Doesn't work
    What the hell do I do now?!?!

    got it working with w7 ultimate. the trick was to give all the other stuff too admin rights and win xp (sp3) comp. mode: ASPLnchr, MapleStory, Patcher, Setup and unins000 on Europe MapleStory folder and in HShield folder to: ahnrpt, hslogmgr and HSUpdate. first time I tried to run it didn't work but after a reboot and new try it worked.

    -good luck BW

    Maplestory Issues.

    So, like so many on this particular forum, I decided I wanted to play maplestory, and play it on my brand new computer! Now unfortunatly like so many others as well, I have windows 7, and maplestory for some reason or other has a hate complex for this operating system.

    I've spent the last two days trying to figure this out.

    And I've read every page of this forum, and though everyone's seemed to have great ideas, that worked for them, I have to say that they have not worked for me. And I am beginning to think it is because I have "Window 7 Home Premium".

    It's been nearly a year sense most of these posts have been written, but I'm curious, if anyone has found a solution for this particular thing.

    1. Game downloaded with no issues. Though when I click to play, it pops up with compatability issue message, and the website it tells you to check when you "check for solutions" is the wrong website all together. NOW. I was wondering if anyone has indeed found a solution for this, or if I'm screwed and can't play the real Maplestory server.
    (Global). Let me know.

    Please and Thank you.

    I have never tried Maplestory so forgive me if this is worthless but I will offer a few thoughts ...

    OK, #1, I recommend for all games is do not install them to Program Files. I personally create a folder C:\Games and install to there. The reason for this is simple: W7 tries to protect the system by preventing programs, except installers, from changing "Program Files" folder (Admin requests etc required) and many games, especially pre-Vista games, write .ini files or install levels etc under their install folder. So number 1, create C:\games and then install to c:\games\maplestory

    #2, is to use compatibility settings. For some programs you even have to run the installer in compatibility mode but apparently not the case here. But where it is needed, you need to go into the installation folder (c:\games\maplestory if you used my suggestion) and you right-click on each program (.exe) file and under properties ... compatibility tab check "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and try XP SP3. In this case the executable is Maplestory.exe.

    #2b is Run as an Administrator and apparently this program may need that as well, although if you use my first suggestion then many games can be run without Administrator privileges.


    BTW, it should not matter whether you run Home Prem, Pro, Ult), etc version of W7.

    Thank you, Trainableman,

    Now, I can't for sure say if it worked yet or not because the game servers are down for update/ maintenance, but I want to add, that when I downloaded it, as you said, into a games folder, I did not get the "can't find Dll!" error I had been getting, so I think that's a good sign!

    I appreciate your suggestions, and I will update you on whether or not it worked.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    To let you know- I'm a little further now, than I had been, I ended up going to youtube, and searching up the problem, (It would pop up the webpage for nexon/ maplestory, so I assumed it wasn't yet working.

    Found this youtube tutorial, where I make sure that nothing is checked in the maplestory.exe properties, then make a shortcut, and once the shortcut is made, move it to desktop, open properties, and change the name in "shortcut" Tab, there's a catagory called "Target" add at the end, after the .exe (GameLaunching) and then hit apply and okay, and after that it gave me a game play pop up I haven't encountered before, and then it prompted the hack shield and is now patching! So I think it's working.

    Thank you everyone for your help. ^^

    No connection

    I've got the European version of maple story, everything seemed to work fine, even in windows
    7 mode, but when I wanted to log on, it said there wasn't any connection, and I had to retry it
    later...

    Tried the American version first, but I didn't know I had to get one from my own region xD, so
    it gave an error that I had the wrong server.

    You have to go to the hard disk drive then press the one with random letters. look for nexon press it, press maple. search for the file named maplestory then you're there. that explanation didn't really describe it right but i found it myself
