Welcome to Geeks to Go
Playing the game should not be a problem. Its more than likely an issue with the OS that was available at the time and the fact you ate trying to run the game on Windows Vista.
- Right click the program icon
- click properties
- click compatibility
- check the box next to "run this program in compatibility mode for...
- Select Windows XP Service pack 3
- Click Apply
- Try the game.
If it doesn't work again then work down the list i.e XP Service pack 2, Windows 98, then try 95.
If after you choose Windows 95 the game still doesn't run then we may need to try something else.

If you can install the game you need to follow the instructions in my previose post on the desktop icon for the game.
You don't need to use My Computer.

Also try installing it again. It may detect a previous version and remove...that's if you can get it to install.

do any of the other games install at all?
Also you said it won't let you install, is there another message that pops up?

Ok can you run the setup from the disk?
Click My Computer
Right click your disck and click open
Then try and locate the setup and right click and choose Run as administrator.
I know there can be issues on Vista with older Auto run features and running each individual setup should help.
You will need to select the setup for each individual game separately.

What the error your getting this time? Is it just the box that pops up quickly?
Just to ask how many folders are there on the disk?
If there are 3-4 can you do a print screen of each folder and then attach it so I can see the contents?
- Go to My Computer, right click the disk, select open
- Click the Print Screen button
- Click Start,All Programs, Accessories, Paint
- Paste the print screen in there
- Click File Save as
- Save it as Print screen 1
- On your next reply under the box were you type your reply click Choose file
- Navigate to the file you just made
- Clck Open
- Repeat thart for each file
- Once you have selected each file click the gree Upload button
