Lex, the program likes to run on at least a P III > 350 MHz and you say that you are using a P II @933. I think a typo has been made...) Let's say that if you are really running a processor in the 900MHz range and not having the luck, you may want to back up to an earlier version of the Nvidia driver and maybe an earlier version of Direct-X as well. At one point, until I get my drivers figured out, I was doing better with a 64 MB video card than I was with a 128! I am using the 128 card now, but still find the earlier Nvidia Driver works. You can go to www.driverguide.com
and log in after getting a free account. Look around for Nvidia drivers and try several. You may be surprised.
Best of luck.

(Sure, I am using a PIII)

I changed the card to an ATI 9200 with 128 MB.
Same effect !

I tried another computer (Dell 8250;3.06GHz;ATI 9700 Pro 128MB;XP SP1;Direct X9.0b).
Now the program is running, but in steps of some seconds the screen flashes black for a short time.
