have you tried compatability mode

as i have had this game running on xp

1.. Right click on the shortcut to the program.
2.. Click on Properties.
3.. Click on the Compatibility tab.
4.. Click on Run this program in compatibility mode and select one of these:

a.. Windows 95

b.. Windows 98

c.. Windows NT 4

d.. Windows 2000

5.. Under Display settings, check mark the mode that you think that is best:

a.. Run in 256 colors.

b.. Run in 640 X 480 screen resolution.

c.. Disable visual themes.

Click on Apply.Click on Ok.Double click on the program.

try windows 98 compatibilty mode!

unless you have already tried that]

like i said it works on my xp machine

What is the full error message please?

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.

Good luck.

cm01_02.exe has encoutered a problem, close the program blah blah blah.
then asks me if i want to send the error report to microsoft to help them solve the problem.

so if i take 1 slot of ram out, it might work????????

i doubt that!

all computers are different ,even if they have the same specification, they will have a differnet configuration.

it probably will never work on your system but may work on others.

thats computers for you

it works on mine and i have xp.

doesn't matter if you have xp home or pro they are both the same,in terms of what the game recognizes.

not a very helpful answer but i feel there is some truth in it..

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
