Hi, I'm aware this has probably been asked numerous times but having spent about 45 mins going over the forums here I havent found anything relevant to me.
Demo doesnt work(just for some variety in threads ^_^) It doesnt even open, it just errors as soon as I run it, heres me specs:
3.06GHZ pentium 4
512mb ram
win xp
GeForce fx 5200
I also have the newest versions of dierect x and the GF drivers and about 800 mb virtual memory. Help please :(

I have a similiar system and was able to get the game to run. It might be helpful if you could post the error messages.

I get the windows error report thing(incountered an error, needs to close, sorry for sucking, send error report). You want me to post whats in there or wouldnt that be relevant(I dont have the first clue when its comes to things like this...)

Any additional information about your system and the symptoms you observe could help in tracking down the problem.

For example: What version of XP (Pro or Home)? What sound card? Do you have dual monitors set up?

just a shot in the dark but have you tried updating your sound chip drivers?

edit also are you saying you have installed the demo and are having problems or have you not even been able to install it?

Latest drivers don't always mean best compatibility/stability (take the cat 3.8 and 3.9 for example), try using one version older.
