REBEL2.EXE is the DOS version, the Windows 95 version of Rebel Assault II is called RA2WIN95.EXE and when you run the EXE it tells you to use RA2START.EXE (AutoPlay Launcher) to run the game, but the launcher doesn't work on XP :(

What I would like to know is if anyone has gotten RA2WIN95.EXE to work on XP and how they did it.

I got the Windows version of Rebel Assault 2 to work on XP. All you need to do is go to My Computer in Windows, open the cd drive folder the game cd is in, and double click the mouse on REBEL2. Then proceed through the game settings that appear. Eventually you will get to the menu where you can click on the option to play Rebel Assault 2. However, I noticed that the game ran faster on my Windows 98 computer than it did on XP. I am not sure if the cause is the different operating system or the different video card (older computer had ATI Rage LT Pro, new computer has Geforce4 Mx)

Which version?, Windows or DOS version.

The Windows version doesn't work because the launcher crashes when run on Windows 2000 & Windows XP and there is no way that I know of bypassing the launcher and attempting to get the game to work.

If anyone has ever gotten the Windows version of Rebel Assault II to work on Windows 2000 or Windows XP please reply here and tell me :)

The DOS version may work if you have VDMSound installed or try run it in DOSBox.

You can download DOSBox from:
http://dosbox.sourceforge.net

You can get the latest version of VDMSound from here
