Hi all,

thanks to Antares who provided this comfortable launcher many of you will be able to install and play Z Expansion in Windows 2K/XP/Vista.

Here is how it basically works:

1) Throw in your Z Expansion CD ROM

2) Start Z Expansion XP:

3) Select a target folder and click Install:

4) Wait until installation is complete:

5) Click the Start game button to play:

This works as easy as it sounds. However, some of you might experience certain issues based on the specifics of your system. These may be discussed in this forum.

Thanks again to Antares. You can find the launcher in the downloads section of the ZZone.

Best regards,
George "Zod" Lewe

Luckily, I had a quick lookie since Antares big thread on zxp expansion has been deleted? (why?)

Anyway, for anyone who needs 1.6:

Lazy123 I did give direct links because of a promotional forum script. If users will download directly, it will not help return the host. I ask you to remove the direct link. Version place Zod on this forum - v1.6.3

You can refer to a thread forum -

If the new version goes, I will try to publicize it Zod, so that the forum will always be fresh version

Changes v1.6.3:
- Corrected the loaded order levels
- Added check "compatibility mode"
- Corrected a little flaw, which could not show error messages
- Cleaned installer (removed unnecessary code)

Hi all,

waddaya mean, I didn't leave a link. I wrote that you can find the file in the downloads section of the ZZone.

So go to the ZZone, click on Downloads, then navigate to folder "Z and Z95", in there is a folder called "Upgrades and Patches". And there it is...

Also see link above in previous post.

Best regards,

Actually, all things seem to work, but... I am using Vista, and when I try to load it, the DEP (Data Execution Prevention) thing shuts it down... because it sees it as not safe. I have tried to make an exception, but the ntvdm.exe that is required cannot have DEP switched off for it, so...

Any ways around this?

Thanks! :cheers:

I see no connection, ntvdm a Dos program loader. What is the connection between Windows and Dos software? No.

Since regular Z runs quite nicely in XP with DOSBox it is unlikely...
