LAUNCHING THE GAME II

Problem:

Answer:


You try to start the game and the screen flashes briefly, and

you are returned to the desktop without an error message.

There are probably miscellaneous programs running in the

background that are interfering with the game and causing it

to crash.


Solution:

For Windows 95 users:

1. Press the CTRL+ALT+DEL keys at the same time to

open the Close Program window.

2. Click on a program so that it is highlighted, then click

on the 'End Task' button.

3. Repeat this process until only 'Explorer' and 'Systray' are

left in the Close Program list, then try running the game.


For Windows 98 users:

1. Click on the Windows Start button, then choose Run.

2. In the Run line type in: "msconfig", then push the 'Enter'

key. (This will bring up the System Configuration Utility.)

3. Select the 'Startup' tab, and turn all of the check boxes

off, except for the one next to 'Systray'.

4. Press 'OK'. When you are prompted to restart your

system, click 'Yes'.

5. Once your machine has restarted try running the

program again.
