At the time I loved everything X-Files in the 90s and early 00s so I had to get this game. I found it ok, loved the graphics at the time and got engrossed in the X-Files universe. I do think the series has dated badly now, but it did have it's moment, long before the identities of Mulder and Scully were swapped around and the characters messed around with too much. Great at the time.

Finally got this game to work on Windows 10. Firstly you need to install QuickTime, and version 6 worked for me with very little fuss. Now download each iso file and put them all in one folder. Then double click or mount ISO disc 1, then find the setup.exe and right click it and change its compatibility setting to Windows XP. Now launch setup and the install shield will start, this could take a while so be patient, when it starts select full installation, which means you won't need to swap discs in game, an error message told me incorrectly that I did not have enough hard drive space but just select ignore to get around this. The game will now install and at various points it will ask you change disc, and to do this press the windows key to return to the desktop, then unmount/eject the current disc and then mount the disc that is required, return to the installation and confirm, although sometimes you may need to repeat this for it to be accepted. Once installed open the game folder and find the X Files game launcher, right click it and change compatibility to Windows 98, and now you can launch the game. Barring the odd minor glitch the game should work but it's best to go to options and select 'best performance' and then gradually alter the individual graphics settings to see what you can get away with.

The game was released on PS, PC, and Mac in 1998.
I tried to run the PC version of the game but could not.
A better option would be to download a PS version of the game.
You can downloaded the PS rom of this Xfiles game from Cdromance or other rom site. Also, you can use the ePSXe emulator to play the original PlayStation game.
Lastly, I suggest that you also download the PS2 rom of the game X Files: Resist or Serve from Cdromance as well. This game was released in 2004.
The PS version is set during Season 3 of the TV show and the PS2 version during Season 7 of the show.

To get this to work on windows 10, download the DVD ISO. Also, download QuickTime 7.6. Install QuickTime. Double click on the ISO, go to the English subdirectory, and run the setup.exe file with compatibility mode for Windows XP. This should install with a few 16 bit errors. Now double click on the DVD ISO to open it, and then run the X-Files program All should work well. Because you have the ISO open, the program assumes this is the disc. And you won't be prompted to flip the disc.

Got the DVD version just fine, however none of the autorun/setup.exe want to work in win10 even with Quicktime installed and compatibility mode enabled... any ideas?

This version works great on Windows 10. Needed to install QuickTime, but everything else works right. I have this game on ps1, but there are glitches when playing it on the ps2 or ps3. This version works great so far, and is really fun if you are a fan of the show or FMV games.
