I recently bought an old copy of discworld 1+2 and broken sword. None of them seem to work in XP and i was wondering if anyone had any ideas?

The go into start - programs - Accessories - Program compatibility wizard.

Select the game you want to play and then choose an operating system you would like it to run under. Try Win 98 as 2000 is very similar to XP.

Through experimentation you shuold get it to work.

Also check you have the latest drivers for Graphics card and soundcard just incase.
