programme wont open

  castiel333 20:08 23 Feb 2006

Ive just installed a game called populous the beginning and when I try to open it nothing happens. I dont get any error messages all that happens is the power point comes up for a few seconds as though its trying to open and then nothing. I have tried reinstalling and running in compatibility mode (its for windows 95 98 and Im running xp) and I dont know what else to try. I dont know if this is relevant but the demo version Ive got works fine.

Have you checked the publisher's website for any reported problems and subsequent patches or updates?

Patch to 1.03 click here
you may need to register with fileplanet (not if you use firefox and bugmenot extension)
