Hey Jenny, thanks for that. That turned up 5 Uninstallers, but none for Runaway.
Since I last posted, I restored to three days ago (via the: Safe Mode command prompt only > scanreg/restore method) and was finally able to get the computer to accept the game.
So I was playing, and everything seemed fine until Chapter 2 where there are some sound files that are screwed up. Voices of people who aren't there pop up, and some dialogues go on with no prompting, and the subtitles stick as the dialogue goes on, ect. Twice in Dr. Oliva's (sp?)office the game crashed to desktop when I clicked on a certain question. So it's playable but buggy. Maybe just in this section. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Is there a patch, I wonder?
