hey there, i have this problem with championship manager 01/02, yes i know its old but i like it better than the new one, anyway to the point, i have windows xp pro, p4 3.4 gigz,1GB DDR333 RAM ati 9700 all in wonder VPU. anyway when i install the game, i can not run it, everytime i run it, a problem occurs and asks me to send the problem (cm01_02.exe has occured a problem...)
I had this problem too, it turned out to be a problem with memory, some games will not run on xp pro if u have more than 512 mb ram, there was a patch on the Eidos web site , but i never did manage to get the game to work, ended up buying CM4.(for xp)
I also tried running in compatability mode but that didn't work either.
My son had similar problem when I changed to XP. Not much help I know but, eventually, I deleted a .dll file and it worked. BUT I cannot remember how we arrived at this .dll or which one it was. Maybe this will jog someone else's memory
