This is a new thread made for Hot Date. The latest expansion has problems with XP. Mine shows splash screen, then nothing. There is no hard disk OR CDROM activity. Also, in the system monitor, the game process never shows up, and under programs (system monitor), it never shows up as well. I have a dual boot so I can play on 98 for now, but I like XP better. I will be trying some application compatiblity tools later today (at work now) and will post the results later. If you read this and your copy works... please post your system and possible what drivers you are running (via 4in1, detenator 2x.xx, ect.) I know there are others who want to play.
