    If it'll run in W2K it should run in XP.

    Have you tried using the Program Compatibility Wizard and running it in W2K mode?

    If that doesn't work, then it may be a problem with the install of the game. Have you checked the properties of the shortcut to make sure that it actually points at the game's executable file?
