Ok dudes, my task is to run PoP: Sands of Time.

Just for info, when the game starts, it throws me out to the desktop (even before the videos) with the following: "The game has ended unexpectedly. View the Readme file for technical support."

Well i have to appoint that i have already played PoP1 in the past on my PC (which is : Durom 800mhz, 352SDRAM, GeForceMX440)

One dude told me to use 3d analyze to run the game, but i just can't launch it. No window or process is pooping up when i click on the .exe file. Maybe i'm doing it wrong. So - What should i do?
Please help me.

Si senior, i've read the guide. My problem is exactly at the end of page 1, where you need to click on the .exe file and get a window pooping up. This window just doesn't launch - nor the process. I've asked one of my friends to try it with the archive i gave him - it worked on his PC.

So then I reinstalled the Windows (cuz i had planned already, otherwise i wouldn't have done so) and - same effect with both PoP and 3D-Analyze.

And that is why i'm writing here ;).

Do other games start correctly?
Try start 3DA from the command prompt, and check if some errors appears

No Response from cmd prompt either - i've tried that.

But Yes - other games run properly. I've played tons of different games on this PC, though i'm not a super-mega-gamer. It's
just that both with my brother - we've had this computer for years, and used it a lot.
As far as i can say - it should run properly. Usually... I really don't know what to do, because everything else is fine.

Gosh, it worked with 2.31 ver. Screw me - i'm sure i tried 2.36b and 2.34 and both didn't work...
Well i apologize for my incompetence, But there is still a problem.
Now that i can run the program itself i need to make the adjustments for PoP1. Because without any of them, the game crashes the same way.

Ok so here's a little info i got on a few tries - With the "disabled rendering" check on, the game doesn't crash but i don't have screen either. Using "disabled lighting"; "disabled two sided stencil"; or the "Anti-detect: shaders & textures" modes doesn't change the situation from not using them at all.

So... there are a lot of possible combinations indeed - what do you suggest?

P.S - I'm using Windows XP Professional Lite version (tuned by a user, not a Microsoft original disc)
