Got it working with the results above but some button clicks throw an error like the minus button and the exit game button. tried a bunch of things but havent found a way around the issue. makes the game unplayable sadly

Also, make sure that the first sound is named "sound" then "sound1" "sound2" and so on. Mine was being iffy when clicking and I found I had to have the sound files in both /Car Tycoon/Sound as well as /Car Tycoon/ , so copy and paste the .wav files instead of simply moving. I have it running in Windows XP Service Pack 2 compatibility mode, and the only issue is the minimap is blackened out.

2021 Fix for all those trying to run it on Windows 10.
Download the original .zip for Car Tycoon and extract.
In the folder you will find a "setup.bat", double click that an it will extract the other folders.
Download the EN_Fix and move those in, replacing them
Now go into CarTycoon/Sound/
You will see a bunch of "1.wav" or "2.wav"
Use a mass file renamer (I used Advanced Renamer) and have it so it renames them to "Sound" with incremental numbering. Now go in and rename Sound01.wav thru Sound09.wav to not include the .wav
Move those sound files into CarTycoon/ (the .exe should be in the folder)
Run the .exe (You may need windows 98 or xp compatability)
It might flicker and you will need to just click on the task, but it should run now!

install using virtual drive, before running game; set compatibility for all users to win98 and tick the resolution 640x480 box. Enjoy

Same problem with win 10 It would just flash in the loading screen with a word "label" in the top left.

FYI - In order to run older games, you need to activate DirectPlay (Programs Functions for Windows Legacy Components)

I remember reviewing this game for the largest Danish games website at the time, Jubii Games. I wasn't kind to it. Probably the laziest excuse for a tycoon game I have ever seen.

Agreed with Jeffrey, had the exact same issue. Flickering small screen that said label on the upper left. Running it on Windows 10 with Windows 98 compatibility on.

I was unable to get the game to work. It would just flash in the loading screen with a word "label" in the top left.
