The PC is running XP Pro Service Pack 3. The game designed in the days of Windows 98.Is there a patch or cure I can use to make it work?(I've read on other forums that people have managed to get it to work on XP)Also installed the Expansion pack "Livin' It Up" but that won't either.Thanks. Big Trev 23:53 03 Feb 2011 Thanks, but that didn't work. Any other ideas? This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
