What works

The main menu, sort of

What does not

Installing, however the installer does not work on windows 7 either. Copying the game folder from the DVD to the hard drive is enough for starting it, but then the patch cannot be applied because the corresponding registry entry is missing. Using a Windows XP virtual machine I was able to install and patch the game. But then only the main menu would show up, and only when enabling the virtual desktop. After starting a new game (which remains black) and clicking blindly, I can hear the dialogues, which seem to end prematurely. The original DVD is not detected by the copy protection, so I had to perform further actions.
