It should run on XP Pro. More often than not the problem is that you need to update your graphics drivers.

To find out what kind of graphics card you have, go to Start->Run, type dxdiag and hit OK . A new window will pop up. Go to the Display tab.

If it says your manufacturer is nVidia, download your drivers from here.

If it says your manufacturer is ATI, download your drivers from here.

If it says your manufacturer is Intel, download your drivers from here.

If that doesn't help, just describe the problem to me and I'll see what I can do.

Video card drivers and direct X ? (not like it would matter much having the latest one with TM but a must in general, if running MS anyways...)... if you get the black screen and sound then you're almost there though :) perhaps resolution, installation of files, TreadMarks version...?

Try hitting the F8 key when you can hear the music. That should show it in a window instead of in full-screen mode.
