Christian, the program is probably calling for something called "base memory." Is it giving you a line something like "program needs 580 free" or something similar? Are you running with Win95 or 3.1? If you are running 3.1, shell out to dos and type "memmaker." This will free up some memory for you. If you are unsing Win95, try "restarting in Ms-dos mode." See if this helps. With a little more info, we may be able to get your game going...

OK! Here's exactly what the computer tells me:

"You do not have enough memory avilable to run this game. If you have any resident software loaded please remove it and try again."

First start up in MS-DOS mode and type mem /c /p at the DOS prompt to ascertain the available DOS memory. Then remark out  the drivers that you don't need from your config.sys and autoexec.bat (eg. REM C:\videCD\mscdex.... )and reboot your machine. By doing this you should be able to free up enough base memory to get it going.
