    I recently reformatted my hard drive and upgraded to xp service pack 3. Since I did that I cannot get the game to open. It crashes after the opening credits.

    That did it! Thanks



    I had a play and got Windows 2000, the third display option from the left and I left checked the enable write combining box and the program seems to work as well (means less changes to do afterwards)

I had this problem and I went to the Program Compatibility wizard in XP.
Start
Accessories
Program Compatibility Wizard
Choose from list
Select Shrek 2 click next,
Follow all of the suggestions that they give. They will walk you through each step to try.

I followed each one and found that Compatibility mode for Windows 98/Me with 640x480 screen resolution worked after I did the display adjustments listed below.

I went to Display Properties, Advanced, Troubleshoot, slid the Hardware acceleration all the way to the left and unchecked the enable write combining box. I had to restart the computer after I did this, but now the game loads.

Cannot delete from computer, has taken 174mb disk space


I think this is how it's done for XP

Start; my computer, c:/ drive; program files; 2k games

Don't open the 2k games, or whatever the folder's name may be. Just click it once and delete it. If it gets sent to the recycle bin, delete it from there too.

Can't run 1701 Ad with Windows XP SP3


Use restore point and go back to before SP3. Wait a couple of weeks and download it again. They should have the bugs out by then.
