    "Doesn't work" is not very informative. Do you get any error messages?

    Right click the shortcut you use to start the game, and select Properties. Activate the Compatibility tab, and select Windows 98/Windows ME. Then click OK.
    If that doesn't help. you can experiment with the check boxes in the Compatibility tab. For one of the games I own, ticking "Turn off advanced text services for this program" worked.
