When I try launching NSF:HS I get an error msg. saying something about 'invalid export to Kernel32.dll'!
And I bounce out of the game (I don't even get in really...) What is that all about?

I've been in that situation before, it worked ok after I've uninstalled & installed it back on. Give it a shot.

Try right clicking your NFS icon and under target add the following to the end of the line only without quotes
"-d3d" and see if that helps.

try this: install NFS:HS as normal. Add a shortcut on your desktop that refers to the jfshs.exe file. In the shortcut, after the " you need to add -d3d0

So the shortcut should look something like this:
"C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Need For Speed High Stakes\nfshs.exe" -d3d0
Normally this would do the trick...

This sounds like your 3d card is not been detected
Make sure you run the /setup/3dsetup file first then try it again
If this does not work, get the latest drivers for your video card and try again.
