  1. hi there; i've got a new laptop with windows XP and installed the game; which was fine, but then when i went to play it, it states 'sorry, not supported on windows NT'. i managed to play this on my pc, which also runs on windows XP, but this won't. if it helps, im running an ATI Radeon Mobility X300, and my pc was a nVidia GeForce 2

    it's to do with the file format, the HDD in the laptop is most lilky set to be using NTFS which is a NT file format, whilst your PC HDD is most likly using FAT32, the game needs FAT32 for it to work hence why you gat the error on the laptop, there is nothing you can do except to get some kind of Partitioning software such as Partition Magic and Partition some HDD space on the laptop and convert it to FAt32.

    Did you try the compatibility wizard? Change the setting to win 98 that usually works for me if i get a Cannot run in WIN NT error using XP
