      So you're saying I should uninstall the program and install an older version or install another version of Windows.This is odd though because this isn't the first time I install Elephant on Windows XP and I bet most of the users have the same version of Windows.Thanks anyway.

      Hey dany2391,

      please uninstall your current version of the elephant and install our latest release - version 0.90.

      It can be found here: http://elephant.pokerstrategy.com

      I`m not sure that this bug fixed in v 0.90. This is compatibility issue between Elephant & Windows XP with AMD CPU. I sent the letter about this issue at elephant[at]pokerstrategy[dot]com.

      If you say about PCs with AMD CPU then Win XP SP3 32bit, If you say about PC with Intel CPU then I don`t know. I just know that user had Intel CPU 2.80GHz & 1Gb RAM. So I think that he use 32-bit version too.

      Hi all,

      the latest release v0.90 runs fine using Windows XP.
      But in some occasions, in general when installing this version onto a freshly installed XP, without Microsoft's .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 previously installed, the MouseHookdll.dll located in the Elephants root directory can not be loaded and the Elephant won't start.

      As a hotfix just download and install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 (click) besides the already installed .NET Framework 4, while we're looking into the problem.

      Cheers,
      L

      Hi Larres,
      One user try to use this workaround but he install .Net Framework 3.5(not SP1) & then install .Net 4. This workaroun failed.

      Hi stanisluv,

      there is a bunch of changes implemented with the SP1, so please go ahead and try it using SP1 - that should work together with .NET Framework 4.

      Greetings,
