Does anyone know how to run this program in Windows XP Home? I've tried all manner of MS-DOS emulators but can't get the sodding thing to work.

I've had the program for ages but couldn't be bothered to play it - now i've got the full solution and a shiny new laptop, i thought i'd give it a go.

Thanks for any help or advice you can offer.

It does not work with XP. Strange - but true!

If its a Dos only program try using a dos emulator which runs in windows. I believe dos box is one of the best. Good luck there will be a way!

Umm... don't blame me, but what is "The Eye," somekind of game?

I wouldn't blame you, though there is for, it's the game by Queen Multimedia Productions and contains a lot of instrumental mixes of Queen songs, some of them are great!

To me, the easiest way is to create a partition on your hard disk and install win98. I understand people may look at the idea and be terrified by it, but it's easier than ever.

Peace,
Adam.

P.S. I'm not surprised The eYe doesn't work on XP, it's been almost 7 years since it was developed, yes?

I made it work on Windows XP SP2 using DOS Box 0.65.

1 - You have to transform your CDROM into .iso files.

2 - You have to mount these ISO using DOS Box.

That's all folks !

Enjoy !
