    I am playing Wizards and Warriors from Activision on Windows XP. There are aspects of the game that arent working correctly, such as clicking on buildings etc. I read a tech file that said that was a common problem with people playing it on w2000 since it was desgined for W98.

    I have tried the compatability in the properties, didnt work.

    I downloaded and installed VMware so that I could run W98 @ same time as XP, but I cannot get VMware to recognize my Win 98 CD. It keeps telling me that there is no bootable cd in the drive.

    Is there anything else I can try to play this game?

    Hey glad you got it working;
    as far as the VMware you gotta tell it where your CD ROM is.
    I thinkyou have to update the VMtools. But the VMware you gotta install an OS before it can work. VMware is an enviroment; its an empty box. So you gotta fill it with an OS, just as if you were to buy another computer. Its a good tool if you wanna mess around with your computer; but is afraid to mess it up bad.. so i hope that works.
    (even though it sounds like you got your game working) this is just for further references.
    :)
