Others have no problems to get ZGI to work under XP. I do. Upon reaching the 100% mark the installation routine complains "w95inf32.dll not found". Which is in the system32-dir where it belongs. Does anyone have an idea what might be wrong with my system?

I haven't tried installing this game yet - but, have you tried putting the installer in win95 compatibility mode before you install?

It should work fine in the compatibility mode.
Make sure that you used it with both the installer and the *exe file.

It worked for me on XP/Pro.

Do you have that file?
It comes with Win 98 as well as Win 95.
I don't know if putting it in your Windows folder or your Windows\System folder would help. But it's a small file and wouldn't be hard to send by email if you wanted to see if having it made a difference.

Unfortunately the file is right where it belongs. Too bad... Guess I'll never be able to play it again until I reinstall Windows frown

Your file may be damaged. You can download one from the web. Go look for it in Google, I had to do the same thing once. When you get it copy it onto the old file and see what happens.
