Problemtic sound deompression sofware for My First Amazing World

\015 We have an old copy of DK multimedia My First Amazing World Explorer with which we gave our children many many happy and instructive hours. We now have a grandchild whom we want to introduce to the "Amazing World" Previously it worked fine on my old Win.95 machine.I now use an Acer Aspire 3680 running Win.XP. On trying to load and run the program from the CD-ROM, I get the error message:[1058]:The sound decompression software has not been installed properly. Please run Setup and try again. The program will now terminate. [OK]I have read the Read-Me file chapter relating to (Win.95) sound decompression issues, and have checked all the audio codecs installed on my Win.XP system. All are "Working Properly". I have Disabled and then re-Enabled every one, and then restarted the system.... but the error message remains.Are you able to help me fix this to run under Win.XP? If I need a different (new) audio codec file, please send me the file or advise where I can get it.Very many thanks. Your help will be greatly appreciated.Kind regards\015
