I put in the CD and select Install but nothing happens. If I right-click setup.exe and run as administrator nothing happens. I'm using Vista 64bit. Anyone know how to get this to install?

Also check this to get the game running after you install it:

^^^ That didn't work. Nothing happens when I enter it in run. When I shut down the PC after trying to run setup a message pops up saying it didn't install properly. I then select install using recommended setings and another message pops up saying it can't be installed on WindowsNT due to a DirectX 6.1 limitation. I'm using Vista Premium 64bit.

Anyone know how to fix this or am I wasting my time trying to get this to work?
