    OK, couple of things on this one...

    It does work. (Got it running on mine currently...)

    The main problem is the POL viewer. But, luckily, there's a fix for that as
    well.

    Go here...

    http://www.playonline.com/ff11us/dow...l?pageID=media

    That gives you links to a "special" version of the PlayOnline Viewer that
    you have to install... (And it's important to read the instructions on how
    to install. It took me three tries before I figured out what I was doing
    wrong...)

    Here's a brief version.

    1.) Download the special POL installer.
    2.) Install that downloaded POL file.
    3.) Install FFXI. (This is the tricky one that I missed... Bascially,
    you'll start with the FFXI installation, NOT the Playonline installation. I
    kept trying to install the "old" version of the POL software on top of the
    one that I had downloaded.

    If this doesn't help, let me know.

    Actually Final Fantasy XI came out about 5 years ago, roughly.

    Check the other message, just have to upgrade the Play OnLine Updater, and
    the game will work.
