I am trying to install the game on my Vista machine and I keep getting Prompt.dll inpage error. The only way that I can even get the computer to see the disc in the drive and try to install it is by using the compatabilty wizard. I have tried to install it using Win 98, ME, XP modes with administrator on and off. I have disabled Visual themes and I still get that error.

So does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to get this game to install and play on a Vista computer?

Thanks for any and all help.

Well, I’m at a loss my friend – but give this a try. If it doesn’t work, you may have a bogus disc (i.e. copy) and the game won’t recognize the copy when you attempt to play:

This is the install instructions for Orion Pirates on Vista, but it does give tips for bypassing Vista defaults so this game would work, I would imagine the same tips (1-12) should work for you - lets hope.:)

Vista sucks, wait for Windows 7... I've heard from a reliable source that it is exceedingly compatible with old software (more so than XP). :eek:
