# 1 Star Trek - Dominion Wars
05-29-2011, 10:33 AM
After years of trying to get this game to play on a Windows XP system, I have finally succeeded!

It involved downloading a wrapper that "JiriDvorak" created and hexediting the main ds9dw.exe file to replace instances of ddraw.dll with the new ddra2.dll wrapper.

I can finally play one of my favorite Star Trek games again. If anyone wants the modded .exe file and the wrapper drop me a pm with your e-mail addy and I'll send it to you.

I have that game and even the CD is sitting in my computer desk hutch. I haven't even tried installing that game in years.

Played through the first three Fed missions and it runs like a dream.

Searched and found how to do it myself thanks to the leads you gave, OP.

But now I wonder if this will work with Starship Creator as well. I got DW because I played Starship Creator and Warp II came free with DW so picked it up for Warp II.

I can't find my Warp II disk at the moment even though I installed it a little while back but it had graphic issues so installed the first SC. And it has issues with being able to read things like missions or anything. Maybe a draw issue so going to try this fix to see if it works.

If anyone's looked at this thread recently and still has the modified exe file at hand, please PM me, for the life of me I can't get it to work...

Na, because of this thread I just installed the game for the first time in 10 years and been playing it perfectly.
