The problem could be the version of your Operating System is incompatible with the game; i.e. the game was made for a 32-bit OS, but you are trying to play it on a 64-bit OS. I'm afraid it won't work. I have a Dell Optiplex 380 PC with the 32-bit version of Windows XP installed and the game loads and runs fine. My advice to you would be to back up all your data, uninstall your current OS, then try loading the game after you've installed the 32-bit version of your OS instead.


Hope this helps.

If i were you, i would request for a refund. They should have taken it off the site years ago. They need to stop putting in old games that won't work on these computers anymore.
