I have installed Tomb Raider 4 - The Last Revelation, but it won't run. I have XP Pro, P3/700, 256M RAM. Creative Audigy audio, and Nvidia Geforce2 MX 400 video card. I've updated the drivers for sound and graphics cards, then re-installed DirectX9.
The symptoms are: it appears to install OK, but when invited by the installation dialogue box to 'play', the system reverts to the desktop and does nothing. The hourglass appears for about a second, then disappears. I've tried to start from the 'start | programmes | etc' route, but still nothing.
I've lodged an enquiry with Eidos.com complete with all the attachments required, but after 3 weeks, I still haven't had an answer. Their actual web site is not very helpful, but I've tried everything it suggests.
NB. TR3 - The Lost Artefact, also installed, works fine and is still being worked through by the kids! I'd be grateful for any tips'n'tricks!
