My first thought is the compatibility issue and to solve this: 1) Go to the .exe setup / main .exe file. 2) Right click --->> Properties --->> Compatibility. 3) Set to run in win98. See if that makes a difference. try that, tell me if it works. If you try it and it doesnt then I'll try and think up something else.

It doesn't run in Win98 as it is yeltongue.gif It is a DirectX problem. Click Start -> Run and type "dxdiag" (without quotes.) Go to the Display tab and click "Test DirectDraw". If everything checks out, try re-installing an older version of DirectX over your current one. It certainly won't hurt your current installation, and I have found that sometimes this solves DX-related problems.
