Is there a way to get privater to work in windows 98??? A friend of mine from school told me that there was a way but he couldn't remember? Any one know anything about it??? I am enclosing a copy of my autoexec.bat and config.sys with this message.

CONFIG.SYS

DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS
DOS=HIGH
DOS=UMB
FILES=50
BUFFERS=50
LASTDRIVE=K
DEVICEHIGH=C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\CPQIDECD.SYS /D:IDECD001

AUTOEXEC.BAT SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1
PROMPT $P$G
PATH=C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND
LH C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\MSCDEX.EXE /D:IDECD001

Actualy it's only the ones from the shortcut that Stinger will need. Under any circumstances don't change the originals in any way.

Nope, you can't run Priv under any version of windows. But Stinger will help you set up a shortcut that will quickly get you to DOS and let you enjoy the game.

Okay. Modify the shortcut in the following manner:

Config.sys:

DOS=HIGH,UMB,NOAUTO
DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS
DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\EMM386.EXE RAM 16384 /I=B000-B7FF
FILESHIGH=30
BUFFERSHIGH=30
DEVICEHIGH=C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\CPQIDECD.SYS /D:IDECD001

Autoexec.Bat:

@ECHO OFF
SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1
PATH C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND
LH C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\MSCDEX.EXE /D:IDECD001 /E

Chances are, sound won't work just yet; I also need you to post the contents of your Dosstart.Bat file, which you'll find in your C:\Windows directory.
