You need to run the game using DosBox or VDMSound. Same applies to its setup program.
Don't bother trying to run it in pure Windows, cause that ain't gonna work.

You can get VDMSound from our programs page, and most recent version of DosBox can be downloaded here.

Don't forget to read the program readmes - I know most people don't give a damn about these, but when dealing with emulators one should ALWAYS familiarize themselves with the documentation.
