Dungeon Keeper 2 Problems

I have installed Dungeon Keeper 2 on XP and applied the 1.70 update. My system is a Pentium 4 1.8Ghz with 512Mb of memory and GeForce2 graphics card. I've applied the latest XP updates from Microsoft.

Dungeon Keeper 2 either crashes out with no error after a period of time or hangs and has to be killed off. None of the compatibility options make it work. Some of them actually stop it working completely.

Does anyone know of a way of making it work.

I had no luck getting DKII to work in XP either, couldn't even get a game loaded w/out crashing, DKII is just too damn old.

I have a similar problem, that XP won't run Dungeon Keeper 2.
Also won't run in Win98...
In both cases says it can't find the Key CD_ROM (it is a legal copy).

I played around in the registry on the Win98 PC and removed the strings relating to Dungeon Keeper 2 (not the Dungeon Keeper II entries) and it then ran ......... ONCE played first level then it locked up PC and has not run again.

Playing with XP's registry does not help.

The CD-Rom path must be stored somewhere, but I cannot find it, and the registry entry for the path does not contain any information.

My kids would like to play it .on any platform so any help would be appreciated

Cheers

IT WORKS - Thanks to EA

Thanks to EA Games support. I have found the solution.

If you have DMA set on your CD-Rom drive then DK2 will not work
so turn it off for the game don't forget to reboot PC before playing.

If you have more than 1 cd-rom in PC, ensure DMA is off and if still a problem, uninstall and reinstall from the other cd-rom drive.

Hope it helps someone..... My kids are happily playing now
