I know it's an old game, but why can't I play it? After I installed it I double clicked the icon but nothing showed up. However it said that nhl98.exe was running in the task manager. I repeated this and tried running it from the cd but nothing.

Weird...

Get a crack, check compatibility mode if you are running XP/Vista.

Has worked for me with older games.

Yeah, I couldn't get it to work either when I tried. Although I thought it was just because my disc was too old. :(

I miss the intro "Are you willing........ to donate.......your body." Lol :P

I didn't find NHL on that website. I think even with a NO-CD crack the game wouldn't work.

Maybe... Make sure to make a backup of the original exe.

Try setting the processor affinity to use only one core. Many older games don't like dual core cpu's. Also, try disabling any virtual drive software such as clone cd or daemon tools.
