Insert the recovery CD into the CD drive or DVD drive.
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
At the command prompt, type the second command, press ENTER. If you are getting messages relating to any of these other files, then do the same with the other 2 commands.

1. expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\config.nt_ c:\windows\system32\config.nt

2. expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\autoexec.nt_ c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt

3. expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\command.co_ c:\windows\system32\command.com

CD-ROM Drive Letter being the drive letter for the CD-ROM.

Start or install the program. If the issue is resolved, do not complete the remaining steps. If the issue is not resolved, go to the next step.

Start Notepad.

In Notepad, type the following entries:



dos=high, umb
device=%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\himem.sys
files=40

On the File menu, click Save As.
In the File Name box, type Config.nt, and then click Save. Close the Config.nt file. (It should save in My Documents)

On the File menu, click New.
In the new blank document, type the following entries:


@echo off
lh %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\mscdexnt.exe
lh %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\redir
lh %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\dosx
SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 P330 T3

On the File menu, click Save As.
In the File Name box, type Autoexec.nt, and then click Save. Close the Autoexec.nt file. (Also should be in the My Documents folder)

Start Windows Explorer (Start, All Programs, Accessories, Windows Explorer). Locate the Config.nt file (in my documents).
Right-click the Config.nt file, and then click Copy.
Right-click the System32 folder (it is in the c:\windows folder), and then click Paste.
Locate the Autoexec.nt file (in my documents), right-click the Autoexec.nt file, and then click Copy.
Right-click the System32 folder (in the c:\windows folder), and then click Paste.
Try Installing or running the game again, it should work.
