What works

The game installs from the CD, installs the needed drivers to run everything. Basic navigation from the game DVD (the install, uninstall, playgame splash screen) works.

What does not

After the game and libraries are install, it asked for a reboot.

After reboot, ran the game and the following pop-up error window comes up:

Protection System Fatal Error:
