I dug up an old game I used to play on Windows 95 and 98 (I think) called Spaceward Ho! This is not 4.0 for Windows or for the Mac. It is Spaceward Ho! with a minimum requirment of Windows 3.0 or greater. I'd love to play it again, but alas Windows XP doesn't like this little application. I've tried all the standards stuff:
- Compatibility mode in windows 95, 98/me, NT, 2000 emulations, 256-color mode, 640x480, disable visual themes, and turn of advanced text services in numerous configurations.
NOTHING WORKED!! :-)
I'd like to be a cheap buggar and not buy the newest version that may or may not work on my system. Has anyone else run into an error similar to:
-An error has occurred in your application.
If you choose Ignore, you should save your work in a new file.
If you choose Close, your application will terminate.
WINHO caused a General Protection Fault in module WINHO.EXE at 0005:3C71.
Choose close. WINHO will close.
Anyone who includes terms similar to or generally meaning:
-It's too old to run
-It's a compatibility issue
-It was a stupid game anyway
will be summarily disqualified from any points assignment unless accompannied by smiley faces and a working solutiion.
:-D :-D :-D
