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!!!
