I did all that but it still doesn't work (not the first time that I have tried it either).
One thing remains a mystery to me though. Setting swkotor2.exe to win 95 compability mode actually makes it possible for me to launch the game and create a character only to have it crash when loading the first level. Any other compability mode (including XP) and I won't even get it started, rather it crashes when trying to launch the game.
