I had this same problem until I reinstalled XP.
>> Stay informed about: Same problem
How I got around it was ( if there is a desktop icon for the game)right
click the icon /select compatability tab. In the window "Compatability Mode"
check "Run this program in compatability mode for" box and select an older
version of windows.
(It worked for me selecting Win98)
Apply and Ok out.
Try running the game.
One querk was I could do this and instantly go back and uncheck the
compatability box and the game would play. But if I took the game CD out of
the CD drive? The next time I put it in it would come up with the error where
I would have to set compatability again. But as long as the game Cd stayed in
the drive,even through reboots, the game would play.
