Try changing compatibility settings for the install file to Windows XP. Also tick the "Disable visual themes"option.

Sometimes Windows 7 and vista are picky about older games. I know I had medal of honor pacific assault on my vista box, couldn't get it to install at first. What I finally had to do was go to computer, right click on the dvd drive, then click open. Once you do that, find the setup file. Right click on that, and tell it to run as administrator.

Compatibility could be a factor, but also could be that the User Account Control settings are kicking in, and that the game wants to be installed by an admin.

True, I forgot about the Administrator part. Some older games required Admin level access for installation, which was readily available in XP. In Vista and 7 however, you don't have admin rights by default.
