i had this problem with my windows XP, i think it's somehin to do with service pack 3, cos zeus worked fine on my old pc which was service pack 2.
anyway i've jus worked out a way of gettin the game to work, the only catch is i've seen so far is that you dont have your map while playing an adventure jus a picture of all the gods. so if anyone works out how to get the map it would be cool to know
what i did was i used my old laptop which has an older version of xp pro on it an installed it on there, made sure it worked okay.
then i opened my hard drive an there should be a file named 'sierra' on there which is the master of olympus zeus game, jus literally open your harddrive an look for that file, then copy that file onto a memory stick and copied it into the hard drive of the pc that it wouldnt install on. literally jus open your hard drive and paste it there. then when it's done open up the 'sierra' file, open 'master of olympus - zeus' and then jus click on the 'zeus' icon. make sure you open the larger icon cos that is the shortcut to the game to make sure it's worked. you can then copy the shortcut an paste it on your desk top.
