I downloaded a game called the curse of monkey island through a torrent.

i already own the game, but it was scratched.

Once i finished downloading it, It was of course in image file, so i ran it through daemon tools. Autorun worked and everything, but when i clicked on install the clock showed next to the mouse for a few seconds then it stopped and nothing happened.

Then i went into the main folder and clicked setup.exe and ran as administrator.. again nothing hapened.. Ive tried burning it to a disk too with no luck.

This game was released in '97. I doubt if it will even run on Vista. You can try compatibility mode

Short of running in compatibility mode for Windows 95, you could try an emulator. Note that depending on where you live, an emulator might not be legal.

I had a similar problem with Need For Speed Carbon, and what I found was the only thing it would run under was in compatibility mode.....Windows Server 2003... or something like that, it was a while ago. Maybe you could try that
