I got Windows XP not long ago, so I feel your pain mate. I won't even bother telling you to switch the compatibility mode to Windows 95, as this doesn't work for anything, at least what I have tried.

I haven't had time to try this method, but it should work. When you use this method, I'm assuming you have a fast processor and plenty of ram.

1. Install Virtual PC on your computer. I've heard that you can find registration details on the net, but I am not abdicating this.

2. Install Windows 95/98 on your "virtual" drive.

3. While running XP, run Virtual PC and run Windows 95/98. Then run X-COM.

4. If you're using one of the early X-COM's then you will have to install a processor slowdown utility such as moslow. For slowdown utilities try

Hope this works  ;)

Glad to hear it worked out for you toast. And as an alternative, you can always download the Windows version of UFO from Fileplanet ;). Oh, and welcome to the boards!

somehow i feel that he was only here for the question....
"The Stun Grenade can be used to stun targets within a small area for a brief time. Larger Aliens may need weakening before they can be stunned."
