I've had this not work straight from the cd. It was the reason i had to stop playing the games way back in the day. I downloaded it from steam and also own the original game cd. I have switched my compatibility run, changed to administrator settings, ran it from different places. simply cannot get it to work. I am aware microsoft's site says windows isn't compatible, but the old version was. any ideas???? i've been wanting to play this game for months!!!

I Recently had to get a New Computer. SAME Specs/Everything but Chip ( a 2.5ghz in place of a 2.2 is the ONLY Difference). Running Windows 7. Bought my Copy From AMAZON. Running a GT520 NVidia. Game Ran Perfectly before the New Computer. Again Only Difference is Speed of Chip. Now I go to Open it and play, I get
"unable to initialize graphics system".I have gone into Properties and Tried Changing Compatibility. I have Tried Changing Screen Resolution. I UNinstalled and REinstalled it and still get the "Unable to Initialize Graphic System".

Not Steam. Got a Digital Copy from Amazon. They No Longer have it >:( (they owe me a refund or a new digital copy!)
Specs in Original Post. I Changed No Settings from the First Computer to the New Computer. Again the ONLY Difference is the Processor Speed went from 2.2ghz to 2.5ghz.
Got a GOG Copy, wants me to Insert Disc. I DL'ed it, Unpacked it, Launched it, It Ran, Closed it, Went to Relaunch it... Insert Disc.

Have to have AMAZON Set up a New Digital Copy. The Copy I purchased from them is "No Longer Available". My GOG Version also is Messed up. It Loaded and Played until I exited out and tried to Play it again. It Now asks me to insert a Disc. Game is no longer installed.
