Trying to run this game on Win-10 and XP gives the same error message : KNIGHTS.EXE
"The instruction at 00000000 referenced memory at 00000000
The memory could not be read from
Click on OK to terminate the application"

Tried all the usual compatibility fixes available in windows, single core only, and slowing CPU down with no luck so far. Game uses WING but I have that installed and checked with process monitor that it finds and loads those dlls.

This game is pretty interesting as it shows what the original Alone in the Dark 1-3 engine would look like in SVGA. The more common earlier Europe release of this game was Dos only without an SVGA mode.

How about BoxedWine?

ETA: The GOG version is "powered by DOSBox", so I suppose there will be no help there.

The GOG and Steam versions are the European release that was VGA 320x200 and DOS only. The US release includes those but also a Win95 SVGA version.
I remember the same memory '00000000 error' message in a few other win95 games years ago but can't remember how I got them to work in the end.
