Furthermore I cannot run sof2 at all nor Prey nor ReturnToCastleWolfenstein nor can I even install QuakeII. Most of the problems are with OpenGL. Most of these failures end in the OpenGL window stating problems with finding bits and pieces of GL. With GLview I can find each of the "failed" files.

Maybe the problem is with xp64 but before I tear this really blistering fast wonderful cpu balancing system down and go back to 'multicore ignorant' xp I want to know if anyone else can successfully run any of these programs on an 8800 with even xp.
