Have you uninstalled EMI before you reinstalled it?
If not, do this:
1. Copy the folder Saves to an other location.
2. Goto Start-Program-Lucasarts-Escape…-Uninstall …
3. Reinstall EMI
4. Copy your folder Saves back to its place.


1. Open Control Panel - Add/Remove Programs and remove EMI (But save the folder Saves before you remove the EMI.)
2. Replace the folder Saves.

It might be a good idea to start with a ScanDisc. Check my answer to Niko in The Harbor under Topic "is there a computer wiz…"

If you are using a Joystick/Gamepad try to run the game without having them physically connected. Then also reconfigure in the EMI so No Joystick is selected.
It might be an address conflict there.
If all fails, reinstall Windows. Kernel32.dll is a Windows "Control file" for the hardware and interrupts and something upsets the files sense for right and wrong! http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif

Let me tell you what have I tried till now,
fresh win98se
different Video Card
different Sound Card
different Computer!
Full installation, used no-CD crack
resolution 640*480 16bit
tried OPENGL 16bit
unload any unecessary program.
no gamepad (I don't have one)
applied patch 1.1 and without it

is there anything else which I could try?

Can you be a little bit more specific, so we can see if anyone else has had the exact same problem?

[list=1] Which video cards?
Which sound cards?
DirectX version?
What type of CD-ROM/DVD-ROM/CD-R/CD-RW were/are you using?
What type of processors are you running?

Also, check your DirectX settings, and see if all of your hardware drivers are "certified."

Well, it looks like the common factor right now is your video card: the ATI All In Wonder... which I've never trusted enough to get for my own 3D gaming. Even if that wasn't the common factor, I would still suggest that you use something else for a video card/3D acceleration.

Now, for your Celeron... I hope you're not running W2K on that with just 64 megs of RAM... It's generally a bad idea to run any W2K system with anything less than 256 megs of RAM. Actually, that's too small even for WinME. You really should have at least 128 megs of RAM for WinME (which your first system has).

However, on your first system, the possible conflicts come with you having two video cards: one that's built-in to your motherboard (and can't really be used for EMI), and the ATI. This has all the potential of making a large mess of your system, and the only thing you can do here is to disable the built-in video card in your hardware profile, if you haven't already done so.

Creative Sound Blaster Live... If you check under your DirectX profiles (there should be a diagnostics program for DirectX in its directory; look under "C:\Program Files\DirectX" or something similar), you'll probably find that the driver is not "certified"; not much we can do about that, though--Last I checked, neither Creator Labs nor Microsoft has released any updated drivers that would make it certified. Try checking thourgh Creative Labs' web site for updated drivers, and hope for the best.

I have not heard anything wrong with the CD drives you're using in conjunction with EMI, so see if you can run the game without the "no-CD crack"; this probably means you'll have to uninstall EMI first, though. So uninstall it, reboot, then re-install without applying the no-CD crack. But do this after you've downloaded and installed the updated drivers for your hardware.

Also, go to LucasArts' website to download the patch for EMI.

I have checked the problem with the 3rd computer, still the same error message

Duron 750Mhz
Ram 128MB
Video Card TNT2 VANTA 16MB
Sound Card Creative 128
Windows ME
DirectX 8

I'm coming to this conclusion that maybe my copy of the game is defective http://www.escapemi.com/forums/frown.gif
