To my knowledge, older versions of MUGEN don't work well under Windows XP. There is an XP patch somewhere, but I don't know where.

The problem is nothing to do with mugen; rather it is a common error with XP.

 

What happens is the system deletes the autoexec.nt file, required for all 16-bit apps. so it needs to be restored.

 

1. Do a search for autoexec.nt on your C drive, you should find it under "Repair" folder I think its called.

 

2. Copy this file

 

3. Paste it into C:\Windows\System32

 

4. Right-click on the new file, properties, make it read-only (stops xp deleting it again)

 

5. Now your mugen should work.
