first we need your system specs (lower left corner) so we know what hardware you have. We also need 32 bit or 64? clean install or upgrade.

We also need to know if the game is 32 bit or 16. right click the executible file and go to properties, details

I think the OP should follow Sassa's advice, in this case.

Posting specs seems a bit unnecessary for this particular problem.

Sorry Ken.
