OK, I guess you're not running the proper shortcut that opens the game, but instead the one that browses the CD or something like that. First look if the installer created some other icon in the start menu or the desktop, there should be a folder with a few of them. If not, try to search for the actual .exe yourself in program files and run it manually (you can latter create the shortcut if it works).
