    THE PROBLEM
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    I've just been to hell and back with a copy of RE2 Platinum for PC. when I was playing the game,
    I would try to save. Then, when I wanted to reload, the program wouldn't read the save file! I 
    panicked for a about two hours, then I solved the problem. 
    
    
    
    
    THE SOLUTION
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Once you've installed RE2 on WinXP, leave the disk in the CD-ROM drive.
    
    1. Go to START/PROGRAM FILES/CAPCOM/RESIDENT EVIL2/RESIDENT EVIL2.EXE
    
    2. Right-click on the icon. Select PROPERTIES.
    
    3. Click the COMPATIBILITY tab.
    
    4. In the COMPATIBILITY MODE box, place a check mark in the box that reads "RUN THIS PROGRAM IN 
    COMPATIBILITY MODE FOR:"
    
    5. In the scroll menu beneath, WINDOWS 95 should already be the choice.
    
    I basically figured out that RE2 and RE3 are not compatible with WindowsXP. By running it under 
    temporary previous settings, you should have no problem reading your save files.
    
    Good luck!
