You have done well describing the error message and what you have tried
to resolve your problem, but I see no indication of what game you are
trying to play and what multiplayer server you are trying to use. It
probably wouldn't hurt to provide system specifications, operating
system version, firewall settings and version and DirectX version. Much
of this information can be viewed in the DirectX Diagnostic (included
with DirectX and many versions of Windows)after running the various
video accelerator, sound accelerator and multiplayer communications tests.

If you are attempting to use MSN Game Zone you might try inquiring in
the games.zone forum/newsgroup on the same site or news server this
thread is located on.

Robert:

Thanks for your response. I am trying to play Chess on Windows XP Home
Edition 2000 with a Pentium (R) 4. Even when I disable the Firewall nothing
works. When I enter the Registry, the Room file is missing. After I re-create
it, the file disappears again later. The patch created to replace the Room
file does not work. If you have any ideas I would appreciate them.
