Hello, all! Has anyone had any trouble loading Nancy onto XP? We have XP, but we get an error message saying "Your operating is Windows 2000 - Fail". How can this be? Does anyone out there know more than I do about computers than I do (i.e., On/Off)??

Thanks!
Goopie

Uh oh, Goopiekat, I have STFD too, but havn't got to it yet, so I wonder if I'll have the same problem on my XP machine.

Some games check the operating system on your computer before you can load or play them. Unfortunaly, some older games think XP is a Windows 2000 system. (not sure why). I don't know if there is a way around this. Maybe you should post this in the 'glitches' section instead of hints.

Have you tried changing the compatibility mode of the Setup file on the CD to Win 95 before using it to install?

Ummm....Jenny? How do I do that?! Change the set-up to Win 95, I mean?! I'm so computer ignorant, it ain't even funny....

It's worth a try!

Thanks -

I think what you do is browse to the Setup file on the CD using Explorer, right-click on the Setup file, and change its compatibility mode the same way you would if it were a file on your hard drive.
