Warcraft 2 quits to winXP

  1. Help! I get the black DOS screen and then right back to windows. I think this is a problem with the 'General MIDI' file, but I don't know how to fix it. I tried running the windows legacy program, set for win95, that didn't work either. I've run all the patches, no luck.

    Thats funny, I have War2 and it runs fine in Windows XP.
     
  4. First make sure you have the Warcraft II BNE Edition which supporst WindowsXP. If you are trying to make the original Warcraft II release to work on windows XP, try DosBox. Just google it.

    Hey I wrote a tutorial about this so go check it out if you want.

    Just clicking and dragging the war2exe file over the dosbox will bring up a cd error for some people.
