After reading the Theme Hospital thread, I went on the lookout for any other good abandonware games that are now free to download.

Transport Tycoon Deluxe is good if you like strategy games, and this one is patched to work in Windows:

why not ask the people who made it, was published in 1996, and this thread is 3 years old.

Hello,
I didn't manage to start Transport Tycoon Deluxe because a "dplay.dll" is missing. What should I do?

Try running it in Win 7 in XP compatibility mode (find game directory, right click on exe file, select compatibility mode and change).

One thread, one question please, I have deleted the other thread which duplicates this query.

I have tried it but it is not working. It starts and as soon as it enters to the main menu, it crashes and the program closes.

Then it's probably not going to work in Win 7 then, lots of games don't, especially games that were made for Win 95, even with an XP patch.

You could try loading Win XP into some virtual OS software within Win 7 and load the game into that.

You may have some luck with this

You can import the graphics and sound from TTD to make it work almost exactly the same, IIRC.
