Cool ntvdm.exe not responding
I've recently installed this old ('96) game called Hodj 'n Podj and tried to run it. The introductory part works fine, but then it just freezes and the screen goes black. When I forcefully terminate the program, I get the following message: "you chose to end the nonresponsive program, NTVDM.exe. The program is not responding'.
I have Windows XP Professional with all the updates installed.
I googled this problem right and left, checked the Microsoft support pages, read a lot of forum threads, but in the end nothing I found on ntvdm errors seem to apply in my case.
Any suggestions are welcome.
Thanks!

p.s. I hesitated if to post this thread here on in the game section. ultimately, I think it's a windows problem.

Maybe it will work in the Compatibility Mode with, say, Windows '98. Go Start>Help & Support and key Compatibility Mode in as a search - it explains it all.

Thank you for the suggestion, Saga.
Ive tried that already.
I also run the Games & Multimedia Troubleshooter in Windows Help and tried most of the things suggested there: closed all other programs, lowered the DirectDraw Refresh rate, lowered graphics hardware accelerated settings etc. Nothing so far.
