I have read the other post on this topic, and I am having a similar but somewhat different problem.
I can't install or play the game on windows xp.
The install program just stops, after I click install from the autorun. When I end process for the setup it says that the Win 16bit Subsystem may be Unstable, and lets me click ok to quit or cancel to keep running.
I really really want to play this game as I just bought it.
I haven't been able to find the Official patch for this game either.
I really need help with this as I have searched the web wide, and still have the problem.
Oh and i have also already tried all compatibility modes etc... for these items.
