Does anyone have the KQC and been able to get it to work properly on Windows ME?  I want to play KQ4 and 7 so bad, but it's not working! :(

What sorts of errors are you getting?

Just for the record: Windows Me sucked. >:(
So, I just went straight from Win95 OSR 2 to Windows XP. ;D
Don't know if KQC will work on XP, but if it doesn't, I've still got the Win95-pc. ;-D

   [Just for the record: Windows Me sucked. >:(
So, I just went straight from Win95 OSR 2 to Windows XP. ;D -- Copycat]

   I agree Windows Me was poor.  However, in my opinion, Windows 98SE rocks because it is still supported by Microsoft and it doesn't need the most powerful computer.  New games still support it and many people still use it.  In addition, it is expensive to continue to upgrade frequently.  Windows 98SE runs most of the new hardware and the underlying code is 9x which is more closely linked to DOS than the NT (Not There --- people used to joke --- read it in a book about Microsoft) code which is what XP is based upon.  Unfortunately, we will all eventually have to upgrade and I may skip the XP radiated product and go to Longhorn which should be in stores by 2006 when 98SE bites the dust.  (Alas, this will be NT based -- they say more secure --- we will see.)  If you have not guessed it yet, I enjoy computers very much and have some knowledge about how they work.  I remember learning Basic programming which my Dad taught me when I was young.  I could work with computers as a career but I would rather work with kids because they keep me young and I do not want to be tied down to a desk.  Thank you very much.
   The King's Quest Collection will work with 98SE because I have it and it works.   :)

You must have a different KQ collection to me.  I only have 1 - 6 in it...  Odd.

There's (at least) two KQ Collections, one with KQ1-6, and one with KQ1-7. I've got the 1-6 too. 8)

MS-DOS was a completely 'working' product. So, since Windows95 is closest to DOS (apart from Windows 3.11, which was only a shell on DOS), it's the best working product. :P
My Windows95 can recover from a BSOD, Windows XP (home) can't. Therefor, Windows95 rocks. Now, if you really want a working product, you've got to look away from M$ and onto a Unix-taste.

Are you running KQC in DOS or Windows, and does that make a difference in regards to sound?

Run into a problem now. :P I kind of need the music in order to hear the dragonettes' song in Etheria.

Any solutions to getting the music to come back?

Do you have absolutely no sound or just no 'voices' (in this case the singing)? Also, what soundcard-type are you using? Is it embedded on your motherboard or is it a seperate card?
