I recently bought a new game (xp compatible) I installed the game but it will not open.

This has happend more than once with other games that were compatible. I've updated drivers, I have the latest version of directx, I just don't know what else to do, can you help?


This question was answered on April 4, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

After downloading, the game may still reequire the disk to be inserted.

Delete and re-install the game Open with the disk inserted.

Also the games may be compatable to XP, but may reequire a faster processer.

You have a Pentium II according to your profile,

That may be to slow for the updatablee games and may have trouble opening them up after a couple attempts.

But it is possible that they can do so.

Double check the requirments of the game and your hardware.

Including speed.
