Yes, it does.

But getting it to run with a decent FPS will take some work. I have to run it in Windowed mode.

I will admit that it may take some tweaking with your settings. Try running it in compatability mode. All kinds of stuff.

What error?

To be honest, no, i've tried to run this game on several different modern systems and it just doesn't work.

I was just playing it last night so yes. You have to do some real work but yes it does work.

Win 8.1 64-bit. Works....

This site might help you get the game running on modern systems.

Yes but it will be horrible.

The reason is everything is drawn with GDI which used to be hardware accelerated. There's no solution to this except to play the game on an ancient laptop with win xp or something.

I did run this on an XP machine with a Sempron. Works well. Though I never had any problems running it in Windows 8. Apart when for whatever, the month of march I couldn't get the game to run.
