I just bought 80 Days and there is no way it will start on my computer. I tried tweaking by uninstalling the game, cleaning up my computer files, defragmenting, and reinstallin the game. I also downloaded their patch. I am able to view the read me file, but the game will not start via the desktop icon, via Play while browsing the cd, or via Run. My HP computer is fairly new with all the available Windows XP updates, Direct X 9c, etc. downloaded. All other new adventure games run on this computer with no problem. (Am presently playing RHem 2, and was just getting 80 Days ready to play next.) Any ideas would be appreciated.
