I have a version of this game that is around 4 years old. It may to be
causing a problem when being run on the same PC that is now converted to XP
as opposed to the previous system Win98se.

Does anybody know if it is likely that i will need to purchase/obtain an XP
version of the game please?
Thanks
Dave

Probably, but you can try to run it in compatibility mode. Go to the
Programs folder on the drive (C:\Program Files\[program
name]\[program].exe), then right click on the .exe file, go to
Properties, Compatibility tab, under Compatibility mode, check "Run this
program in compatibility mode for:", and select Win98/ME, Apply, OK,
give it a try.
