Ok, I know that windows has that emulation thing where you can set the game
to work in a previous version of windows... has that ever worked for anybody?
I accepted that some of my games would not work on XP but now after getting
SP2 games that did work do not. One such game is UFO: Enemy Unknown (Xcom
UFO Defender for those of you in the US)

Any help would be appreciated.

go to the folder that its installed to and right click EVERY thing, go to
properties, and check all tabs for a box that says "run capatability" or
something like that. and then change it to what you think might make it run.

SP2 does cause issues, i just uninstalled it and rather then using IE i
started using netscape to block popup and spyware.

Also, if you cant install the game, do the above steps on the CD. I couldnt
install magic the gathering cause i wasent using windows 95 (was and still am
using XP) and then when I ran compatibility on the CD and its programs, I was
able to installl MTG.

Wish I could give you more exact info on how to run compatibility but my
nazi school locked down the computers so I cant right click to pull up the
compatibility menu.
