    Thank you for the response. Unfortunately, no matter what compatibility settings I try, I always end up with a message telling me that "Quicktime has been installed incorrectly. The program will continiue, but videos will not be played". Immediately after that, whether I click "Close" or "Break", the program shuts down. Are there any other things I could try, or can I only hope that DK release their patch again?

If you were able to install it, you may be able to go into the program's folder right click the exe, go into properties, and in one of the tabs there should be a run in 98/me/2000 compatibility mode, check that box, click apply and ok. If you can do that, the program should run properly.

That's all I can think of that might help.

I own the DK Multimedia "My Amazing Human Body" CD, version for use with Windows 95. I am unable to use it with my Windows XP operating system. I understand that you might offer an upgrade...


In your case..the fix is to run the program in compatibility with windows 95..
Insert the disk ..and after that if it let's you install it is great ..Install it ..and after that click on the icon (right ) choose compatibility ..and in there tick the case that says "run this program in compatibility mode for : " and choose windows 95 ..
If it do not want to install it at all ..repeat the same thing with the execution icon on the disk ..
Insert the disk ..than in my computer folder..locate the cd icon ...click right on it ..select compatibility ..than tick same case...to run it as windows 95..and will work ..
In case the feature is not available cause the program is on disk and can not accept properties changes...click right on the icon of the cd ....choose explore... and it will reveal all that it has inside..
Copy all files in another folder on your hard disk ..in a location of your choice ..Than the properties will be able to be changed..and repeat the operation I says ..Locate the executable icon ...click right /properties//compatibility ..and select to run in compatibility with windows 95 ..and there will be no more issues..
