    code assertion failed (null)

    This error message is coming up when someone tries to install a game
    (operating system = XP)

    Can anyone tell me what it means and more to the point - is there a fix or
    workaround?

    (The game is said to be incompatible with XP, but installs fine on my (XP)
    computer and then runs fine using compatibility mode, but on another
    computer, it reportedly won't install - just gives the error message.)

    Hiya
    I have succeded in putting Riding star on my old pc which has Directx but my old pc is not very good so i am trying to put it on the xp but i keep getting the message code asscertion failed (null).
    it said on the cover of riding star not for xp so i guess it just does not work on xps.
