Have you tried running in compatibility mode

Right-click on the desired .exe file, and choose 'Properties' from the menu.
Select the 'Compatibility' tab on the resulting dialog.
In the 'Compatibility mode' section of the dialog, tick the 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' box. Leave the operating system selected as 'Windows 95'.
Click the 'OK' button, and then try running the program again. If you still have no joy after that, you can try ticking various combinations of the boxes under the 'Display settings' section and then running the programm again
