I'm willing to bet that this program 'Scumm VM Quick and Easy' (http://quick.mixnmojo.com/) is exactly what you need to fix your problem.

I have the exact same problem as quackpack, and I can't get Scumm VM Q&E to work! Help!

> I can't get Scumm VM Q&E to work!
What's that mean? Any error messages?

It says:
ScummVM Q + E.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

It then asks you to send Microsoft an error report

Thats never been encountered before, must be sumt on your system.
Try the CMI Launcher (http://quick.mixnmojo.com) instead. A new version of which will be out in a week or so.

Just a question, when you downloaded ScummVM q+e, did you press the button called 'Daily Build' to make sure you had all the right files for it to work?

But yeah, just use the launcher if all else fails.

I downloaded the new ScummVM q+e (v 1.3.5) but when I click on its logo that error message appears.

The CMI launcher doesnt help the problem - it still happens playing windowed or full screen and also whether direct sound acceleration is full or basic.

I have downloaded the old ScummVM q+e (v1.3.2) which does open. I have clicked "auto update" as well. However I sill cant get it to run CMI, although I'm not sure I'm using it right - for path I put:

C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Curse\

Is that right or should therre be more on the end?

Wahey!!!! Its working!!!

It turns out my problem was the same as that of NFS_Rogue which was being discussed in "Curse of Monkey Island won't run properly"

In fact he had the same problem with scumm VM too:

" I downloaded the scummvm thing but when trying to get it to work windonws xp home ed. wouldn't let me open it and get the daily build thing. It just gave me the small windows error screen saying do you want to send a report to microsoft.."

His suggestion of using Abandon Loader 0.8 worked for me too!


Hopefully this will be useful for others too.
Thanks for your help everyone!

After several weeks of being at a loss, I was able to easily fix the skipping audio problem with CMI & WinXP by right clicking COMI.EXE and setting the compatibility mode to "Windows 98 / Windows ME". The game ran without an (audio) hitch after that.

Hopefully this will save someone some unnecessary headache. ;-)
