The last version ran great but it was on Home XP.
The sound card is a Creative Labs Audigy 2.
I might be wrong, but it may have something to do with the Vista Program
Compatibilty Assistant. It detects if an older program is running and changes
how Vista deplos it (XP mode, etc.) or even blocks it.
To change the settings for a program manually, you use the individual program's
I just got the previous version installed. But the audext wasn't working. I
right clicked that file, clicked Properties, and the Compatibility tab. It
didn't work in compatibility mode for Windows XP, so I ran it in compatibility
mode for XP and and ticked the boxes for "Disable Visual Themes,"
"Disabled desktop composition," and "Disable display scaling on high DPI set-
tings" (just on a guess). Then it worked after I menu appeared that said the
Visual Theme reverted to Basic (I usually have Aero, etc., turned on).
So I have the previous version running on Vista except that some of the
sound is missing (intro dialogue except for the 1st thing 8 Ball says, the 1st
mission except for Misty's line....).
The same Compatibility tab gimmick might get the new version on, but I haven't
tried it yet.
