"The procedure entry point UT UnRegister could not be located in the dynamic link library kernel32.dll" This file is based in C:\WINNT\system32 on my PC

WinNT and Win95 have a very similar look and feel
but internally they are totally different.

Actually there a many discussions if or how old
software runs on Windows XP.

Note that Windows ME was the last OS where
you could expect Win95 games to run.

MS had decided to bring the NewTechnology
to the masses. That means: take the professional
base of Windows 2000, add some improvements
and make it compatible to *new* games and a
sufficiant pool of old software.

Windows NT is expected to be the worst case
of all to run a game designed for Windows 95.

If you have some old games which you do want
to keep alive it might be necessary to keep an old
Windows alive. There are a lot of recommendations
to use a clean Windows 98 Second Edition and not
Windows ME.

Check the package or the manual of the game
If the OS is specified as Win95 only, the game
might be that old when Windows NT 4.0 had
not been released yet.

If you find Win95 or 98 and NOT NT then
you can be sure it will not run under NT.

Sorry ...
