I also have a problem running Graduation. I downloaded the XP patch (which has 2 items) but don't really know where anything is supposed to go (into which file or folder) and thus have no clue what I'm supposed to do (computers aren't my forte...obviously). I tried clicking on them but get an error with one and the menu of the game with the other (but I can't play)... I tried clicking on Start_E but I'm asked which application I want to open it with (as it doesn't appear as exe). FYI: I'm on Vista...not XP But in an ideal world what works on XP should work on Vista right?
