Um dunno if this has been mentioned or not.

I installed the Tomb Raider Multi Patch, but everytime I try to install still it comes up with this..

I have the same problem on mine. How do you install it in that mode though?

I've actually tried that method on many other programs. It's never worked on any or made a difference. What does it do exactly? Makes the program think your using XP instead of Vista? Or 95 instead of 98?...

Put it in compatability mode for Windows 98/ME. :wve:

Cool, nifty trick :)

A bit unfortunate it doesn't work for TR1, the actual game. But VDos32 is fine anyway ;)
