I forgot to mention that the video card is actually an ATI Mobility Radeon 9700. The driver is version 6.14.10.6396. I looked at ATI's website and they list the Catalyst Windows XP 4.5 as the latest so I'm not sure why device manager says I have 6.14 drivers.

I am going to try dosbox later, though according to the review this game is for windows so I'm not sure if it will work in dos.

Well, the yellow sun icon (second executable file in the directory) should be the one that is supposed to fix the graphics problem of ufo.exe (synchronize the stripes). So if that one doesn't work for you, then you have a problem, yes, and I would suggest dosbox

That's just the problem - whenever I try to run it in Dosbox, it just says "This program cannot be run in MS-Dos mode".
Now for a little problem of my own. I'm running Windows XP on a 1.8ghz+ Athlon with a GeForce 2 Graphics card and 512k of memory. When I double click on the UFO Defense.exe I just get a garbled screen - no playability there, yet I can still click on things. The second (With the sun icon) plays perfectly right up until the point I choose to "Begin mission" and press "Ok" at the briefing screen. The program immediately exits to Windows.

It doesn't work with Windows 98 or ME either, I get exactly the same error.

This sounds like a case of using the weong EXE..
but since you seem so sure you are using the right one..
and if people never read anything for themselves...this is the
WINDOWS VERSION!
