Right click on your Generations icon.
Click on properties.
Click on the compatibility tab.
Set the Windows compatibility to a verision of Windowsthat worked before you switched to Windows XP (I used Windows 95)
Click apply and close with ok.
This solved my problems so far. If it doesn't work the way you want it to. Try different verisions of Windows.
