wowexec locks up on 16 bit game program setup
Posted on 2007-11-23
I have upgraded to Windows XP SP2 several months ago. I am now trying to install some games on the PC via CD. These are older games which all ran fine under SP1. Now the the install locks up and in task manager I see "wowexec" indented. This has happened with several games include Arthur, Crayola, and Lego Stunt Rally. I am on XP Pro and have tried running the programs in Windows 95 compatibility mode. I have reviewed the similarily titled question "wowexec.exec locks up on 16 bit game program setup" here on experts exchange but it did not solve the problem.
Note: I also reviewed the autoexec.net and config.nt files (and they were correct), per MS KB 324767
Thank you in advance.
