    Hello !!

    I want to know how does this game work on WinXP !!!!

    When i try to play, it gives an error message : "It's not a 32 bit application...." (or something like this).

    I tried the "compatibility mode" to run this as a Win95 software, but it did not work.

    I have heard something about a 4.44 patch that fix this problem, i have already tried it but it didn't work with the same error message !

    It's driving me crazy !!!!!

    thanks !!!!

    Search some of the NFS websites out there. At one time there was a hack to make NFSHS work in Win2k and XP. Sorry I dont have a link to it but I know it exists.

    seeya : HD has nth to do with the incompatibility...
    It's the OS core system..(correct me if i'm wrong).
