Windows XP and Gearhead Garage

Most likely the first time you run GHG on Windows XP, you will get this error:

error spawning Gearhead Garage

error ID:0.

To fix this you need to go to the updates page


and download the Windows XP fix. For it to work properly you need to follow the install instructions exactly, when you do this it WILL work.

Also I've heard several other people mention that if you just right click the gearhead.exe file and set compatibility to Windows 98 it will work too. Possibly a simpler solution
