Starfleet Command-Orion Pirates won't run

I was able to install SFC Orion Pirates but while loading the game to run, I get the following message:

Unhandled Exception!
tPerformanceCounter::TimeSinceStart
tThreadPool::Heartbeat
tSfcApp3d::mHeartbeat
tMyApp::mHeartbeat

I'd appreciate any help.

Try running it as Administrator and running it in compatibility mode for Windows 98.

SFC Orion Pirates won't run

SlasherIT,
Thanks for the suggestions. However, I use a dial-up connection and it would take
6-8 hours to download each driver. Is there a faster way?
I have DirectX 11. Isn't that the most
recent vers.
