I have a new computer and reinstalled W & W, sat down in anticipation to play and... nothing. It won't start. My new PC has Windows XP, and I'm getting the following message when I try to run the program:

"The program you are trying to run requires a current Indeo codec.
To obtain a current driver that is compatible with this version of Windows, please contact the manufacturer at http://indeo.ligos.com."

So I went to the Ligos site and found that I can get the codecs I need by buying Indeo XP for Windows, but frankly I don't want to spend the $US 15, especially since I'm not sure if the game will run even after I get Indeo XP or what other effects (if any) Indeo may have on my system.

Can anyone help? I'm afraid I don't know what version of DirectX I have or what kind of graphics card, nor even how to find out. I know nothing about this new Windows.

Thanks!
