The other thing is that the disc that you bought is corrupted. You can download directx 9 all you want but that won't solve the problem. Get a hold of the manufacturer and see what they can do for you.

I'd try downloading it from microsoft and see if it works that way, you might even get better results with a newer version of directx.

Microsoft Direct X

Use that link to help you learn more about Direct X, and also find a suitable download for you. A lot of times, on disc copies of Direct X have problems. This may just be one of those cases. Either way, I'd download the newest version you can and install it from there. Every Direct X package has been backwards compatible. So worrying about a newer version being troublesome shouldn't be a problem.

It wasn't built for later versions of Windows. You will need to download the latest patch and troubleshoot the compatibility. Here's some information from Microsoft to get your Roller Coaster Tycoon working on Windows XP:

If you're running Vista or Windows 7, just right click on the file, then click on Troubleshoot Compatibility.

Unfortunately none you will want to go through to use it. I find that if I have a pre-XP compatible game, that they often run better under Linux with wine than Windows XP or Windows 7.

That said, Wine and UBUNTU are very easy to setup, are free, and come with a wizard that will walk you gently through the entire process. You can install it to a drive and even dual boot your system. I play World of Warcraft, Neverwinter Nights, etc. the same way.

No Disc in drive E


If you installed the game using a cd then let the cd remain in the drive when you start the game, If you installed it from the HDD itself you will have to mount it to the virtual drive and start playing.

Hope this solves the issue
