Hello:

In the game DEMO "Beachhead 2000" on the Introductory Screen,
when I hit the PLAY button, Internet Explorer should open a
page showing: BUY NOW / START PLAYING / RENEW LICENSE.

Instead, SCREEN resolution changes to a 640x480x16(hi color)
blank screen (DESKTOP resolution stays at 800x600x16) with
"Beachhead 2000" listed in the taskbar. After 3 seconds,
screen changes to (BSOD) with the error message . . .

"FATAL EXCEPTION 0E occurred at 0157:BFF85D82"



Checking game on a WinME machine (mine's Win95c), I noticed
(using "CTRL ALT DEL") the following . . .

[when on Introductory Screen]
Cool Windows Program

THANK YOU FOR ANY HELP, ADVICE, or RELIEF from this.
