I know Windows XP has an option to run a program in compatibility mode. I don't know if 2000 has it, though. If it does, it would be a tab in the properties window.

I doubt that 2000 will have a support patch since they announced that windows 2000 will be cast aside and unsupported in the near future, much like 95 and everything else in between.

How exactly does W2k not let u install those old classics, I am not familiar? I assume you are in an admin level account, does it just deny you the ability to run the setup program from the cd?

you're correct, it doesn't let me run it from cd at all

it'll load the opening screen, but when you click install it says "fallout does not support this version of windows"

i tired looking on microsoft.com for a patch or something but to no avail, are there any freeware emulators like zsnes or DOSBOX that'll let me run it

fallout 2 wont run in dos so i'm screwed there

!@#%^&*(
stupid quick reply... well i had written a long reply w/ suggestions for your prob, but I must have taken so long I got logged out! @$#$%.
well hte synopsis of it is.
-I don't think what you want to do is a possibility. Dosbox is emulating something too far back and win98 is too recent to have an emulator for the next gen(I think) especially since XP tried to remedy this prob w/ built in compatibility fixes.

-you could try to install 98SE on a second partition/drive and use a dual boot screen for when you need to play the older games. This assumes you still have access to win98, I have a feeling it might not work on ME b/c that dropped a lot of the Dos/win95 (which I think is causing the problem) support too.

well i gtg to class so if you are interested in dual booting post back. I or I'm sure many other people here can help. That is, of course, only if you need help ;)

-peace

i was thinking about putting win98 on an older computer of mine but its technically my brothers computer so i'd doubt he'd go for that. He might be getting a new computer for xmas so maybe then

i've tired dual -boot before and it always gave me tons of problems

ps. im running 2000 not ME
