Exile III not starting


Recommended Posts

I am on windows XP, and exile 3 is not loading. It's just an empty window, and nothing happens. When I try to close it, it tells me that the 16-bit subsystem may be unstable, whatever that means. anybody know what to do?
I had that problem when I first "upgraded" to an XP box from my beloved 95 box. Amazingly, I did what the people say, and downloaded the latest sound drivers; it actually worked like they said it would.

Other factors that may account for my successfully running E3/E2/E1 on XP: on the shortcut properties, I selected run in compatability mode (W95 compatability). Plus I have found Exile is a bit less likely to crash on startup if you've "warmed up" the sound drivers using Avernum first.
