why do you want to reinvent the wheel, when xcomutil already has it?
seriously, some tips which might help
1.) read the <***> manual ( or any readme.txt file that comes with xcomutil )
2.) try to search the internet, starting with xcomutil FAQ
3.) run cmd ( start->run ) and then run xcomutil, not just click on its .bat file
this way you can see some error messages, which should be helpful
you can even try to search for this forum
dont just give up, after only one try
you are older than 2 years child ... right?

i've tried fixing it and running as older type windows but no go
this leaves me with a much more limited selection of changes, many of which i think are great but no improved tanks
so i was looking for alternatives or a standalone patch
thanks for the help though

XComutil should be able to work on any PC platform, but perhaps it's not agreeing with something on your PC configuration. What version do you have? The CE edition or the Dos version played under Dosbox? If you're using the version purchased from Steam (or similar service), then you'll have both.
About the tanks - from my recent experience I (well, we - there's a bunch of us playing the same game) found the default Gas Cannon Coelacanth to be quite a valuable tank early on. Had to replace it a few times but still a magnificent vehicle for scouting and it even killed more Gillmen than our individual troops at various terror sites. What I'm saying is that it's a pretty good machine even without the enhancements. Better than UFO's cannon tank - though I'm starting to appreciate that machine a little bit more recently too.
The Sonic Displacer on the other hand is a veritable powerhouse of a vehicle. Well worth the money and zrbite to build.
