Sorry if this has been covered before, but has anyone had any luck getting Jane's F/A-18 running under Win2k? When I run the installer it just quits with a message that F/A-18 does not support NT4. Kinda stupid. At least games like Battlezone II and System Shock 2 warn me but then let me install them.

Yes, use the APCOMPAT tool from the support directory of your Win2k CD. It
will get you through the install then patch it up and all seems well to me.

What I did was copy apcompat to a temp folder on my hard drive, put my F18
cd in my cdrom drive, run apcompat, select the nt4sp5 choice, browse to and
run the setup on the f18 cd. At first it appeared to fail so I right
clicked on my task bar, opened the task manager, applications, and ended the
apcompat program, this left the language setup portion of the F18 install
program still running, I ran it and the game installed and runs fine in

You'll have to wait for WIN-Millenium to be released; WIN-2K is an improved version of WIN-NT...2K was not made to support complex multimedia programs. Interestingly, this reality was absent in their WIN-2K marketing blitz!
