NrmMyth I have just to add that compatibility drop-box never produced anything good in my expirience, so better stick with DOSBox. k:

The Fifth Horseman Have you tried the drop-box with Win 9x compatibility? If no, do that. Try Windows 95 at first.

As for "any other ideas" - get DosBox. 99% of the games up here work well with it. And don't even try the "I cannot be bothered" approach, it wont work.

Adam Yeah, I checked all the boxed, unchecked all the boxed, and tried all the different combinations. Any other ideas?

The Fifth Horseman 1. Right-click the executable you are using.
2. Click the "Compatibility" tab.
3. Figure out what to do with the options...

Adam I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to file names and uses and the like. I have tried downloading a number of games - making sure to only get the ones that are Windows XP compatible, and after installing, I keep getting the error message that the file name is not valid, and that I should check my PIF file. I have read that this has to do with compatibility, however, I don't know what to change in order to get these games to run. Please help, Thanks.
