    I tried installing the game Mafia

    and got an error saying I needed a current Indeo codec from this site.

    http://indeo.ligos.com.

    and they say they want $14.95 them :eek:

    I managed to get round it by doing a repair install with the original XP CD then upgrading to SP1

    its a bit of dirty trick if you ask me
    all that hard work making a slipstreamed XP-SP1 CD for nothing

    GGGRRRRR !!!!!!!

    I downloaded (free) the win 98/Me/2k package and they run perfect with Windows XP...

    They probably put: "It is not certified for operation under Windows XP" just to trick you and pay for it. :mad:

    I needed the package for both "Mafia" and "Cossacks". And both of them worked perfect after I installed the Indeo package.
