    Argh. It's a Windows fault.. are you using WindowsME? Arcanum runs just fine on Windows 98, 98, and 2000...

    Maybe if you installed the newer version of DirectX first..

    Invalid Page Fault.. it means that one section of memory is being used by two separate forms of data. Do you happen to have Norton Utilities and Crashguard? If you don't, get it.. the WinDoctor and Crashguard are the two best Windows diagnostic and repair/preventative tools out there..
