Windows 7: PLEASE HELP!!!master of orion 2 windows 7

Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1

Everything says to install the program on a computer where it works. Unfortunately for me that computer was tossed over a year ago because it didn't work any more. So how do I get the dplay.dll file?

Windows 7

I'm having the same problem where Master of Orion 2 won't even install, and I would try jeffbg51's suggestion, but I honestly have no idea what you're talking about. I'm not very good with computers so I don't really know how to do any of the steps you suggested. Could someone please explain this to me in a much more simple fashion please?

A simple Google search for dplay.dll and I found it.

Windows 8.1 64 bit.

Old thread, I know, but I couldn't find any info on getting it to work on 8/8.1, so I did a bit of experimenting.
Compatability mode for XP SP2 and running as administrator seems to make it work. Also, dplay.dll and dplayx.dll are both found on the MOO2 disc. Hope this helps someone!
