  1. try compatibility mode

    right click the games executable set up file and select troubleshoot compatibility
  2. Things to try:-
    1). install available patches/updates
    2). run in compatability mode

    thing to note:-
    *the architecture of the pc changes over time and may have change to an extent where the game no longer runs
    *the game itself may be coded to run on specific operating systems and yours may not be one of them (I found this when I tried to run Second Sight on Windows 7)
