And copying dplay.dll to the orion folder, per post #7, also didn't help?[/QUOTE]

I dont know where to copy it from. dplayx.dll is not in my win32 or the other file I was directed to. Or where do I copy dplay.dll from?

Carwiz was kind enough to find it for you.

You can find it here: C:\Windows\SysWOW64

I also found the reference below for the same problem. It suggests copying the file and naming the copy dplay.dll
dplay.dll issues
Make a copy in the syswow64 directory, and rename it to dplay.dll. Then, for good measure, copy dplay.dll to the system32 directory and the orion directory.

I cant find the dplayx.dll file if thats what you mean by copying. I looked in system 32 and syswow64. I;m not sure if thats what you're referring to by "copy"

It's in SysWOW64 for 64-bit Windows 7. Check to see if you're hiding system files.

I just checked and dplay.dll is in the MS-VM XP. You'll have to have Windows 7 Pro or above to get XP free though.

Open up windows explorer and go to the syswow64 directory. In the search window type dplay. You should see three results. Can you see them now?

cool found the file copied and renamed and it works but it does look like there is more to it like disabling windows or something. Which of course I do not know how to do. I might try and play it like this anyway for now.

If system files are hidden, it won't show up.

Open Windows Explorer, click Tools in the menu, then click on Folder Options, View tab.
In the box under Advanced settings, click orb for "Show hidden files..." and uncheck "Hide protected..."

Update: Ok, you found it. You were typing while I was snipping.

Use the batch file you created, per the instructions on the Atari forum. If you still have issues, you will probably have to play this game in a virtual XP machine - either using VM or XP mode (if your version of Windows 7 supports XP mode).
