Issues fixed[edit]

Game installer won't run on 64-bit versions of Windows[edit]

Use the InstallShield 3 Setup Engine to get the setup running[citation needed]
While the game executable is 32-bit, the setup.EXE installer is a 16-bit executable so it will not natively work in 64-bit operating systems.
To remedy this, download InstallShield 3 Setup Engine found here: [1], place this file in a writeable folder with the rest of the application install files and run it instead of setup.EXE
