I installed the game and the patch....but each time I click on the desktop
icon , it brings up the creature guy pic then sits there for about 20
seconds then up pops a msg that says "cd/dvd emulation software
detected...blah blah blah"

I have the cd in the drive and have not emulated this game at all....any
suggestions greatly appreciated.

Read the message again. It says emulation *software* detected, not
"emulated this game". I'd say you need to uninstall that lamer cheater
bullshit software you've got installed, and things might work.

What patch?

This would not happen to a version of Windows, would it?
Windows 95?
Windows 98? Second Edition?
Windows NT 4.0?
Windows ME?
Windows 2000?
Windows XP?
Which Service Pack, if any?
