I downloaded the Windows version. The screen briefly goes black and then the program returns to Windows. What gives?
It's a bit old (year 2003), works on Windows 7 but unfortunately It doesn't work on Windows 8 and Windows 10, sorry.
It's another project for me :)

I have tried compatability settings. Should it work with XP?

Yes, I it should run with no problems on Windows 95 / 2000 / XP / Vista / Windows 7.
If you coulnd't run it, check this walkthroughs made by the gammers:

Well compatibility settings don't work. Doesn't appear to matter what options I try. Here's the log:

STATUS INFO : @ 12:15:34 MSG : Starting Application IN : Initialization
STATUS INFO : @ 12:15:36 MSG : Terminating Application IN : Finalization

Mmmmm, it seems that compatibility mode isn't so compatible after all. I'll make several tests with different configurations and then I'll say something.

Compatiblity mode does work but is not a miracle "fix all" solution. I could use an emulator... Did you test this on Windows 10?
