    I had no problem at all running project 64 in windows xp, but now that I'm on windows 7 ultimate, I can't get it to work. Everytime I start it, I get error code 8876086A. Then when I try to open a rom, it says plugins will not initialize. Can anyone please help me?

    Odd. It's workin' fine for me.

    Do you have hardware acceleration enabled? How 'bout DirectX?

    Try updating your graphics card driver and also make sure your directx is fully updated. Also assuming you have the same hardware you ran project 64 on xp as you do with Windows 7.

    Okay, I found 2 things that might be the problem...

    1) I need to update my flash player activex. However, my computer says I'm an admin, but I seem to have no administrative rights. Therefore I can't run the installer.

    2) My graphics card driver to be updated. It says "standard vga graphics adapter". It says the chip type is "ATI Radeon 9200". I do not know where to download the updates.

    Flash has nothing at all to do with project 64. At all. Period.

    The 9200 doesn't seem to have Vista/7 drivers. Who the hell upgraded you to 7 without making sure you have drivers for your graphics card?

    the 9200 drivers are issued by MS
    ati dropped support for it after xp

    I used to have the 9250
