Anyone got any idea how come i couldn't run my NFS 4 & 5 in my XP Professional. It kept pop up "This is not a valid Win32 Application". As for NFS 5, it just crash on the loading screen. Can someone help me to solve this problem?. Thanks a million.
well... thanks anyway. Any car racing games to recommend that are suitable for XP Professional? I got a couple of them but they hate XP and prefer ME. Izzit due to the NTFS file system or the OS platform?
Could you add NFS 3 to that list as well.
I saw a thread about 3 weeks ago about altering the setup.exe switch so it installed with the 9x/ME kernel as opposed to the XP Kernel as norm, but not sure this works as I dont get back to my XP Machine til Sunday.
Can get the Game to spin the CD on some of the compatibility settings. But no game. Also the game wont run on an ME Machine I have, I am not sure why. Would DirectX have anything to do with it. It uses directX 5 and the machine has directx 8
It didnt fix my problem getting the game to run. I tried all the compatibility modes and none of them helped. How come it works for some peopel and not others ? Could it be my Video card, Gforce 2 gts pro
First, NFS 4 won't work on xp at all. It's a proven fact. Somehow need for speed 3 and 5 work just fine. I have NFS 3,4 and 5. 4 doens't work in any mode. So, i'll move on to NFS 5 PU... all you need to do is rename or delete the file Gimme.dll from the directory to which you installed the game. When you found it just rename it something like gimme.bak or something. That's what I did and it worx great now. Happy racin'.
Im talking about need for speed High stakes, not sure if thats three or two, I think it two. isnt Three is Porche unleashed ?
Anyway I cant get need for speed high stakes to work, has anyone been able to get this one to work on XP ?
if so please please tell me what you did to get it to work, and please dont just post that you got it to work, if you had problems what did you do different?
Ive read most of the post on here and tried a few of them to no avail. Im about to consider going back to 98se and toss Xp on the shelf unless I get the games I like to play to work.
After all, Ive spent alot of my money buying softeware games and hardware to play the game in opt performance, so it doenst make any sence to waist all my investment over a Operating system that wont run half the old games I love to play.
Need for speed High Stakes is a very good game and I enjoy playing it.
Someone left a post reading that EA isnt supporting NFS running on XP. If thats the case, then I think EA is sadly mistaken not to. But then again why should they care, they made there money already
This is my system specks

I love NFS2.. been playing that with my P233 MMX that is equipped with on 64 MB RAM about 3 years ago... too bad the CD got scratch and died on me if not i would like to cruise pass those lamborghini with my McLaren... well i never played NFS3 as my PC couldn't support it anymore until now...
