Due to not being able to use the installer on windows 64 bit systems due to incompatibility you can really struggle to run it and the expansions as well.

Well after not being able to find out how to get the expansions working with out the installer I went to work on figuring it out.

If you follow the instructions below you shall be able to play and run the entire game without ever having to use the installer.


Open up your Quake cd by right clicking on the drive containing the cd and selecting either Open or Explore depending on which windows you are using.

Next Copy the file Q101_INT.1 to your desktop and change to file extension from .1 to .zip

Ignore the error saying the file stopped unexpectedly deepening on which program use use to open zip files if any.

Now create a folder on your C drive named Quake

Now copy the contents of Q101_INT.ZIP to the c:/Quake directory you just created.

Expansions..............Scourge of Armagon + Dissolution of Eternity.......

Open up the expansion cd (Will for the purposes of this guide open up Eternity expansion disc first)

Copy the folder named rogue to the directory c:/Quake you create earlier for the main game.

now ignore all other folders on the cd (DOS, INTERNET, SP256, TEN) if it has any.

instead copy every other file from the cd execpt the folders in to c:/Quake/Rogue

Next we will install Scourge Expansion

Open up the Scourge cd and copy the Hipnotic folder to C:/Quake

Now ignore every other folder on the cd (DOS, INTERNET, SP256)

instead copy every other file on the cd except for the folders to C:/Quake/Hipnotic

..............................Now that's the game fully installed as it should be, but now we need to be able to run it in windows so we need a game program.

I like to use darkplaces which can be acquired here.


download the windows executable (first download in the list)

Once downloaded extract the entire contents of the .rar/.zip to the C:/Quake folder you created with all your expansion folders contained within.

Now navigate to your C:/Quake folder and look for the file named quake bat file.bat (may not have the extension visible and just be named quake bat file)

Now double click it and pick which game you'd like to play (Quake, Scourge or Eternity) and press the corresponding number to load and play it.

Enjoy Quake on windows 64 bit with expansions
