These very old games often won't work on newer operating systems. Windows 2000 onwards (built on Windows NT) are very different operating systems to Windows ME and before (built on DOS).
Dosbox is a great tool for running some older games like Warcraft 2 that run in a DOS environment.
If this game requires Windows as a platform rather than DOS, you will have to search for a Windows 98 emulator or install Windows 98 on a VMWare image and run this in VMWare player.
