I'd google "moo2 DPLAY.dll" and see what solutions are listed on the Atari forums.

I think it's been re-named dplayx.dll since Vista.
You can find it here: C:\Windows\SysWOW64

I also found the reference below for the same problem. It suggests copying the file and naming the copy dplay.dll

The first link when googling goes to the Atari forums, and the thread explains how to get this older game working with Windows 7 - both 32 and 64 bit versions. There's more to it than just copying/renaming a file - it appears explorer must be terminated, and the complete instructions are provided.

VMware Player?

Have you considered using VMware Player?
I think that it is still free (you may have to sign up though).

VMware Player - Download.com

I created an XP VM and installed my (old) games in it.

And copying dplay.dll to the orion folder, per post #7, also didn't help?

The Windows 7 XP Mode may also help get this game working.
