    what operating system (include the service pack/edition) are you dealing with here. you gave little, if any, information except "it doesn't work." does your system fulfill the game's requirements?

    the error report comes up with C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\e886_appcompat.txt

    It seems to be an application compatibility issue.

    Have you been able to play this game before this error came up?

    Review the system requirements for the game and compare with your system settings.

    If this wont solve your problem try to update your display card driver.

    Please let us now the results

    Have a good day

    Mr Gaz u told us that the game was working with windows me so that its clear that this is an application compatibilty issue

    try to run the game that Windows Me compatibility mode.

    to do this right click the Game's exe file in the game root folder then select Compatibility tab then select

    "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"

    then select Windows Me in submenu and then click Apply

    it may help u to solve your problem
