i've had a game called "AFL LIVE 2004" since the start of last year. and when i got it, worked fine on windows 98, but since getting XP on my computer has stopped working. It says it supports XP, but when i start the game, it loads the start up then comes up with the usual "AFLLIVE.EXE has encounted a problem...." well i dunno whether ive made myself really clear, but i hope someone can help. i've looked all over the net for a solution, but nothing.

You could try the program compatability wizard. Start -> All Programs - Accessories -> Program Compatability Wizard

sp2 means "service pack 2"
I had a second partition from which i booted for a while to play some old 95 and 98 games (Death Rally) awesome game :tazz:

So a second harddrive with 98 or a multi-boot option with 98 could help.
