Default Unable to run TR2

Whats different nowadays that I cannot run the older games on a PC (Win XP Pro) that I've used since early 2000's, always played them on it.

First level was good, get "FATAL: Level 2 (D:\data\boat.TR2) requires a new TOMB2.exe (version 1582663) to run." upon loading Venice.

The tr2patch does not work either.

Thanks

===== EDIT =====

I didn't see the multipatch.

Venice is now loading.

Glad to k ow it's working now

Just wanted to let you know that there's an awesome community patch around for TR2:
TR2Main by Arsunt.

It fixes many bugs of the game and ports back PS1 only features (like reflections, etc) to PC.

It might not run on WinXP though (I think it's compuled for Win 10), but if you're curious you might want to give it a try.

Thanks for the information.

No Windows 10, only play TR on an 2002 PC with XP on it (this used to be quite sufficient).

So, does this multipatch copy all files needed to run games without the CD being inserted?

Answered my own question, yes it does, not sure if anything missing doing so, doesn't seem like it does.
