You might encounter audio issues with your old games.
Timer related errors can occur on computers faster than those of when the games were originally released.
Game Launch Issues:
You might encounter install problems.
- BAT file problems. XP seems to have problems when you just double click on some .bat files. So open up a command prompt and run it from there. Other times, old batch file may contain commands that are not supported by modern Windows.
- DO NOT let the setup check your system! This can cause the installer to crash. (Note since this is XP, only the installer itself crashes, but it won't let you start another instance of the Sierra installer until you restart.)
- Hidden setup. Sierra setup v. 188.8.131.52 has a problem in XP, where the setup window does not appear. Switch to Classic Windows Theme or use this tool.
line to some of your Sierra SCI DOS games' "RESOURCE.CFG" file.
