Actually, I got WOXL running on Windows XP, without any real problems...
Except game speed, of course. :wink:

But with some careful adjustments on process priorities and using a tool called SlowDown, or CPUStress from the MS WinXP Platform SDK (free, but only 400M complete Download :-? ), I was able to play on acceptable speed. (Got a 1.2GHz AMD, BTW)

Hope that helps. If not, post a reply.

PS: I usually play WOXL on my Laptop (750MHz P3 Mobile with WinME). WOXL runs like a charm on it. No need to adjust speed. Kewl.

Good luck, r007

Same problem here ...and my Win95 disc's back looks like a desert storm has gone over it :( no function!
But i will try it under XP. The only thing that makes me wonder is that the demo (that 6 MB-thing) runs fine but it doesn't help to change files so i can only race Gare d'Europe :(

in xp, right click the exe on the cd you want to run and go to the compatability tab and select windows 95 under 'run this program in compatability mode for'
