Hello all,

I just have a question : If there is a way to make Vgs running under Windows 2000 pro ? because when i launched it under Windows 2000 pro it tells me that Vgs only works under Win98 and 95 !

Thx for the help ! :cool:

There's an experimental P4 patch for VGS 1.41 at www.aldostools.com. I don't have a P4 so I can't confirm it works but it's worth a shot.

aldostools has a dump of vgs demo that reportedly runs under win2k, check it out over there. it's a demo, so no savegame support.

why don't you try a dual-boot setup instead? :)

Whoops! I think I was thinking of the P4 discussions when I wrote that reply :p

VGS only really works in Windows 9x on a x86 processor (and originally on a Mac). And since there aren't going to be any updates it's doubtable that the situation will improve. It's one of the few reasons why I still keep Windows ME around

Regarding to Miki_Kaoru's post:
The demo that he/she refers doesn't work on Windows 2000, it "reportedly" works in a Pentium 4.

Another confusion of P4 with Win2K.

About the topic, VGS only works on Windows 9x/Me. I got it working on Windows 2000 using a Win95 emulation with Connectix Virtual PC. But it requires a lot of memory and VGS works slow.

XP RC1 doesn't run VGS either, even using the Win9x compatibility mode.

i will help with something......

the reason why VGS does not work with win2k is just because this is a net-based OS, what? shall you ask,the answer is that it is like winNT what means that it is developed to build servers at most, not to be used as a home OS.

I can advice you to upgrade to winME because it is more adecuate to your needs, unless you are a web builder or own a bank, trust me :D because it is in this case better than win2k

As far as I know windows me has no problem with cvgs.

And regarding original topic well aldo is an expert and his reply is right on target.

It has nothing to do with win2k being a "net-based OS", mostly because it isn't. :)

Here's the real reason why VGS doesn't work: One of the reasons Win2K is waaayyy more stable than Win9x/Me is that he does NOT allow any programs to bypass the OS when accessing the hardware. This way, it prevents the program from doing something stupid and causing a BSOD.

VGS doesn't work because of this. It uses some strange way to access the CD-Rom, but Win2K does not allow this kind of access.

By the way, I reccommend you NOT to upgrade to WinMe. Win2K's stability is worth it, even if a few programs don't work. One other thing, starting from Windows XP ALL Microsoft OSes are going to be based on NT/2000.
