Hi black454,

Exactly when do you get this error message? If it is when you try to run the program then it could be that the CD is required to be present in the same drive that was used when you installed the program, even if it is simply to validate that you do indeed own a copy of the said program.

I had this same program on my computer when I was running xp pro and never ran into an error message.
