This is the 1998 game, installs fine but it won't start. Instead (2) errors pop up:

- Basically says it can't find the *.exe file but it's there in the correct directory!
- Missing svrapi.dll file, have no idea what that is. Imagine it's not hard to find.

This is on my win98 machine per my sig. Anyone encounter this?

I run win98se and winXP dual boot, I just run the gog version on XP runs fine.
sorted a lot of problems that way, if the game didn't work on xp or 98, I would just install it on the other OS or vice versa.

I ended up downloading the missing svrapi.dll file and slipping it in the windows/system directory, the game works fine now.

Thanks all for getting back with me on this.
