Why not use compatability mode in WinXP? If you right click on the
executable (TRlog.exe) then go to properties. Select the compatability tab
and select Win95. You can even run the program in 256 colors or 640*480.
There's a couple other boxes.
I'd experiment with this, but I don't have a rig that will work with TR.
