    After reading the updates, I kind of doubt it. If you notice there is a compatibility update for XP as well as GeForce256. Meaning not only are there possibilities of software incompatibilities, there is also possibilities of hardware issues.

    I'm tempted to say the problem is a 16-bit installer and/or possibly 16-bit game. Since you have a 64-bit OS, the only possibility for 16-bit apps/games is a virtual machine such as XP Mode(16/32 bit environment). You might can get the game to run in XP Mode, it's worth a shot if you really want to play the game.
