    I recently purchased the game Monty Python's Meaning of Life,
    and whenever I try to install the game a message pops up that says that it requires Windows NT service pack 3.0, but my computer runs on windows XP! Please help me, I spent a long time trying to find this game.

    Same thing here. Here's what worked for me: Compatibility mode.

    Explore the CD and righ-click the Setup.exe file>go to Properties>Compatibility tab>Check the "Run this program in compatibity mode for:" > choose the "Windows NT 4.0 (Service Pack 5)" dropdown. Close and doubleclich Setup.exe again. It worked for me.

    TIP: THis is a handy little utility.

    Good Luck!

    Glad to hear it. Not that I promote anything but universal fairness, but you'll probably find use for the walkthrough after you begin banging your head into the wall... After the first part, the game gets really... um... non-sequiter not to mention bizzaro.

    Hmmm...
    Had no idea there was such a game....so this will be really helpful comment :rolleyes:

    So to quote (or paraphrase) from the flick:

    Pregant Patient on the gurney being rammed head-first through double doors:
    "Doctor!! What should I do!!?"

    DR: "Nothing!...You're not qualified"
    :D :p
