    I'm not sure I understand what you're asking for. Why can't you just put the game into your DVD drive?

    Running VMware really doesnt work well under winxp.
    I have a dual core 2ghz Pentium w/ 3 gigs of ram, and running any VMware image causes my box to chug.

    You'd be far better off installing something like Xensource onto your box but thats a linux distro so you'd either need to wipe your current computer or get a new one

    hi all.
    iCore released virtual machine for Windows XP.

    from icore web-site:http://icoresoftware.com/use.html
    Try and play video-games without polluting your OSVideo-games installed on your Virtual Computer do not affect performance, privacy, security or anything else on other Computers.
    With icore you can have computer for games, next computer for work, another for children - on one coomputer!
