Hi shmegg,

Most likely.  If you have trouble installing then this is what to do.

1)  Run this from the Run box: regsrv32 c:\winnt\apppatch\slayerui.dll
2)  Copy the contents of the CD to a folder - I use c:\Installs\{name of game}
3)  Create a shortcut to the installation executable in the same folder as the game.
4)  Right click the shortcut and select the Compatibility tab - check Run in Compatibility Mode and select Windows 98.
5)  Run the install from the shortcut.
6)  When it installs if it will not run, find the game executable (.exe) and do the same thing as the install - make a shortcut and run it in Compatibility Mode.

Hope this helps.

Also do a search for VMDSound and install that to give DOS SoundBlaster support!

Searchon the W2K cd for the file apcompat. Copy this to your desktop. It will do the same as what Netman66 said.
