Al are you using WinXP ? If you say Win 2000 I wish you luck. If XP try compatibility mode. Do you have Direct X 9 installed ?

More wild guesses.

Did you both try starting it from the mech.exe in the games install directory?

You were right, Marc, that .exe was the only one which could open the game.
by skipping the intro panel, the game work error free now.

s, if you have a normal spwaw installation there should be a shortcut in the start menu for game manual. If not, look at the main spwaw folder and see if you have 'spwaw-manual.pdf' file in it.
This very helpful manual is worth reading *and* it gives instructions to play through the 9 tutorial scenarios that are included in the 8.2 version of spwaw.
