Hi
My bro bought this game and i thought it looked great, so i have orded it and am awaiting delievery, in the mean time i dl the demo version. I am really worried now as i get the error message "cannot find Shell32,dll:SHGetfolder pth W and a device attached to the system is not functioning" when i click on the demo exe file.

It is really realy annoying me.

I have re installed windows, searched around on the internet and the only references i can find point ot the age and version number of the shell32.dll file.

I have win98se and i have what i think is the most upto date shell32.dll file number.

But even if i didnt i have no idea how ot update the file as windows says it needs it and is unalterable in both normal and safe mode!

If any one out there has cracked the problem i would be very very graatefuil if you could drop me and emial to let me know how you solved it.

Thanks
