Try stopping the explorer.exe process and see if it will run then. :)

Yeah I tried that. Thought it might work like Master of Orion 2 but it doesn't.

Try turning off desktop compesition in the properties for the shortcut.

edit: You could also try running it with admin rights.

For me, re-installing it a few times helped.

Windows 7 Home Premium x86
Found a fix

So with the suggestions and the fiddling around with different options I ended up making it work for at least an hour.

Right click on your shortcut icon of the game - go to properties

  • Compatibility mode: Set as Win 98/ME
  • Disable Desktop Composition
  • Set as Admin
When starting the game go in :
  • Advanced
    • Select Disable Movie
    • Select Play in Windowed Mode
Sure it's not full screen but you can max out your window so that is fine with me.

I kept pushing on this in the settings because when I ran the game in safe mode it fully worked so I figured I would fiddle more with it.

Found a full fix

Hello there,

I have been working on what actual requirements to get this game working and I have actually got to to work in full screen and on top with sound and everything.

You will need to firstly install the game, and then you will need to install the v1.2 patch that is normally what comes with the game.

you will also need to run the game in compatibility mode for Windows 98, and then you need to have disable desktop composition, and run as admin.
