Hi, when using this* installer on XP x64 it complains it might not work because I am trying to install a version not compatible with my system. Maybe it suspects SP3 to be the current SP for XP x64. This is not true, as XP x64 is related to W2K3 development, so SP2 is the most recent service pack. If you guys/gals have nothing better to do... well ;-)


Thanks for bringing a great game into the 21st century, but you will probably get no thanks from the girlfriends of the players ;-)
This task depends upon

The attached patch might do the trick, but I don't currently have an environment to build an installer so I can't test whether it performs the check correctly.

Does the attached installer not give the warning about the version? You might need to uninstall the previous version in order for this installer to run. You shouldn't actually proceed with the installation as this isn't a proper OpenTTD compilation.
