Q: How can I install Blade Runner on Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 (x64)?
A: I developed a new installer for Windows x64 which also contains all necessary patches. I provide it right here. The installer is in English, just follow the instructions. You have to register on this page in order to download the file – no worries, it’s for free and clean!
Q: I already installed Blade Runner, where can I get this great CPU Patch?
A: (Thanks to Aqrit’s DirectDraw Wrapper – http://bitpatch.com/ddwrapper.html) I also provide this patch here. Open the spoiler “CPU Patch”, click on the download link and extract all files from the .zip-Archive in your game directory. With this patch you can finally finish sequences like the shooting range or “the rat in the tunnel”.
In order to get pass “BLADE.EXE stopped working” error:
After every reboot, just remount the CD1 of the installation, re-open the installer executabile and proceed until language selection, CD loading and installation target path so you’re able to proceed with the install, BUT, just don’t proceed, leave everything like that and start the blade2012.exe to start the game. I don’t know why, but the error will not appear and you can play the game.
Don’t forget to set DPI scalling by Application under Compatibility for blade2012.exe before you start, on Windows 10 x64 (tested).
