  1. The command is -window. Right click on the shortcut to the game, go to properties, go to the Shortcut tab, and in target, add "-window" without the quotes after the text that's already there. Be sure to put a space between the original text and "-window" and it should work fine.

  1. I know that I could run it windowed on my XP Pro machine back when I played it, but I do not remember if I had to do anything special to do so. I believe there is a command line parameter that allows you to set it to windowed mode, though you have to specify the resolution you wish the window to be.

    I'll attempt to find it, but at least now you know what to look for.

  2. The official arcanum.exe has no support for -window switch. The exe file included in the unofficial arcanum patch by Drog Black Tooth (google it) however does have the -window switch "implemented".
