Default Heroes of Might and Magic III (HOMM3) on Mini 1010 with XP Home SP3 - 05-24-2009, 09:42 PM

Hi all. I'm trying to run HOMM3 Complete on our recently bought Dell Mini 1010 with XP Home SP3, but no matter what I try (safe mode, all compatibility modes, different resolutions and graphics modes, closing all unnecessary background apps), I get an error reporting dialog at launch: "Heroes of Might and Magic III has encountered a problem and needs to close." I suspected SP3, so I installed the HOMM3 demo on a desktop with SP3, but the game runs fine.

HOMM3 is practically the first program I installed on the new machine. I haven't installed any other hardware or software. Has anyone else had their games crash immediately to error reporting dialogs and know of a solution? HOMM3 is one of my favorite games, so this is quite disappointing.

Update: HoMM3 still doesn't work, but I got HoMM2 to work by disabling the Intel GMA 500 Adapter.
