    If anyone knows how to get this game working on XP I would be extremely appreciative. The game is called Constructor and is made by acclaim.
    If anyone can get this game working for me, they will be given rep every 10 days for the rest of the year!!

    Thanx in advance!

    I had this game donkeys years ago, never had it running on my XP machine but I've heard various sugestions and for some people they seem to work. Firstly there is a patch that you can download:
    http://www.acclaim.com/games/constructor/downloads.html

    It's also suggested that you try running it in Windows 95 compatibility mode (can be found by right clicking, then properties, and selecting the compatibility tab)

    *edit* You could also try a DOS emulator such as this, might work... ?

    Constructor was a great game.

    Your best bet is a DOS emulator like DOS BOX. I use it play old games such as Monkey Island, Pizza Tycoon, Frontier Elite II etc. on my Win XP machine.

    I don't see why it shouldn't work for you...
