Yes I did. The ddhelp.exe thing which I already tried and found useless. And the typical "our titles were developed for Win95" line.
And yes, thankfully I am missing your point. Or perhaps dodging your point. I refuse to believe that a company is not responsible for ensuring that titles that they have created that are currently being sold off the shelf work with the current crop of OSs. It would take an intern to get this accomplished. And to say RS is an old game is ridiculous. It is a relatively new game in the list of games that LA has published.
