    Playonline wont boot after FFXI install

    My computer works fine, my girlfriend wants to join FFXI and her computer is more than enough to run this 10 year old game, she has a Netbook here are the Specs:

    1GB Ram

    1.67GHz Intel Dual Core Processor

    Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 (GPU)
    ---------------------------------------------------
    Playonline does operate without FFXI being installed, however once I install FFXI ( main game) it won't boot up for some odd reason... any reason behind this?

    Thank you!

    What OS is the Netbook running? if windows 7 I think you'll have to download a patch.

    Also could be the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator.

    If it's not the Intel G.M.A., Could be a problem with the FFXI Config on a new installation. I had a laptop that didn't want to play the opening movie would crash every time so I had to disable it.

    Question lies... Would that be the cause of PoL not booting up at all? :/ PoL works just fine without FFXI installed.. when its installed its begin a ******* lol :P

    Just googled the problem and someone with the same exact issue with the same exact Abyssea Collection. had the solution, that revovled around using the Vanadial Collection PoL 2008 version of PoL and that did the trick for him.. perhaps this is the light that I needed? hmmm

    And by "netbook" you mean laptop? Because they're very different entities.

    My husband had a netbook that wouldn't boot FFXI properly either. It's been quite a while since I tried it, but I do remember going through all the install process, but the game simply wouldn't boot at all after installation finished. The netbook should have been fast enough to handle this 8+ year old game, but I think there was some issue with the graphics/display that wouldn't allow the game to work.

    All the regular laptops we've had run the game just fine; 5+ year old Vaio and 8 year old Toshiba running WinXP, new i5 Win7 HD laptop, even our MacBook running BootCamp Win7; only the netbook has had trouble.
