It's a pretty old game have you tried running it in compatibility mode?

Becuse you copied the install folder onto your system and installed it from there then the path will lead back to that folder instead of to the disc drive. I remember there was an issue with it and as far as I know the unofficial patch solved it… at least on my old windows xp game rig but it’s been some time since I have fired that sucker up.

The patch lives here: http://www.cncnz.com/hosted-projects/command-patch/the-first-decade-unofficial-patch/

Perhaps a simple query, but any scratches on the disc that might not have been there before?
