Works O.K. on my Windows 7. AMD system, but I don't like the old look. Uninstalled it. Thanks anyway.

Also got 404 error when installing from GGOD. After multiple installs and uninstalls, I even downloaded the file directly from ToomkyGanes.com and after checking with virustotal, did the install with same result. Did compatibility mode using seceral windows versions, but --no go. Final uninstall. Oh well, stuff happens. and you can't complain if it's free, anyway.

Installed and opened fine, but, like others, a couple of minutes in and it crashes with that error. Running Win 10 and ran compatibility tool to emulate win 7 but still same issue. Wish these games would be tested ahead of time on newer machines; even with win 10, it crashes.

According to the GameGOTD Archives , the game was given away 3 more
times in the past .

https://game.giveawayoftheday.com/?s=The%20Baker%20Street%20Murder

The game is very old .
Metacritic has it released at Nov 15, 2010

https://www.metacritic.com/game/jane-croft-the-baker-street-murder/

So , from personal experience , a good way to solve quite a few problems ,
is to set "Compatibility mode" to Windows XP.
It worked for me many times in the past .

I can't say anything about the gameplay because I did not installed it yet .
I will try to come back later .

Will not run correctly on windows 11. I installed it 3 times with my AV turned off. Ran it in compatibility mode for windows 7. It will open and load . About 2 minutes into the game it will just freeze.

Problems I'm afraid. When I tried to open the program I got a 404 error, but when I deleted that it went into the game. I played for about 5 minutes and then was ejected with:* I removed the program and started again, but exactly the same thing happened. If any body any ideas I be grateful. Thanks.

Sieska Cowdrey, the error 404 is easily resolved by running Game.exe instead of JaneCroft.exe.

Despite the archaic graphics, all the quest items are well drawn and can be found. So far, I have not encountered any attempts to deliberately hide such items. However, it's hard to call the game addictive.

Just FYI, if the game doesn't display correctly, for me everything was pushed to the right with half the screen cut-off, use the troubleshooter. Right click game icon and run "Troubleshoot compatibility". The first attempt didn't fix it but the second one, checking did not display correctly, fixed the issue for me. For the record, I'm running Win10HomeX64.

I've no time to play at the moment but just thought I'd put this up in case anyone runs into the same issue. Thank you to all involved for this giveaway. I look forward to playing later.
