Did you restart your computer after install?
Do you have enough? R.A.M?
What operating system?
Which CPU?
How much R.A.M.

Some games are self-installed under the ProgramFiles folder, others install themselves as a separate folder. I should think either one will do, but you could play safe and uninstall the game and then re-install it using it's wizard.

Is there any other information included in the runtime error message?

Without the exact wording of the error message, my first guess would be there is something wrong with the game or its installation? Has the game EVER worked for you?
Regards,
John

Is this the original copy of the game? If not, then I cannot help you further, as you are in violation of copywrite law.
