try d3dwindower, simply add aranock.exe in it and launch! I still get two error msg when i exit the game for some reasons it says the game crashed.

also i've found these posts:

DXwnd - Worked like a beauty. It says it couldnt allocate enough memory and performance would suffer greatly, however as long as I maintained an 800x600 it ran just fine.

You might also need admin rights / XP mode (on D3D and/or the game itself) to get it to run properly.



D3Dwindower - Couldnt get this thing to work.. no idea how everyone else does.

These may or may not be of use to some people. *Note I havnt tested the links but I have heard of all but Glide these and they do work usually with some fiddling.

3DAnalyzer - did not work for me.
DX Open GL Wrapper - did not work for me.
Glide Wrapper - did not work for me.

The D3D Windowing software is simpler to set up but may not give you as many options or flexibility (if you need or want it).

The Virtual PCs (Microsoft  Virtual PC and Oracle VirtualBox) require more setup/installation steps but do emulate a complate Windows XP machine on Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 platforms.

I run all three on my Vista machine.  I am not able to test them under Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Below are the download links.

This runs under Windows 7 Professional edition.
It says that is may not be supported under some versions of these operating systems but does appear to work.  I have a version that runs under Vista OK but I have not tried to download this version to test it.  With my Vista version I was required to have the Windows XP installation disks.

Oracle VirtualBox

This will allow you to install and run many versions of Windows or Linux.  Note that you do need to have an installation disk for the operating system that you want to install.

I posted a video link of how to make it work in 1 of the topics, and also posted the steps to it.
