Without a CD crack it's useless. It's just an installer, and the game requires a physical CD.
Therefore with a virtual ROM, the game won't work even on the following systems: Windows 98, Windows 95, Old versions of Mac, Windows Xp 32-bit, Windows 2000, Windows 10 64-bit. (I've tried all of it with my virtual copy, included VMWare and Virtual Box, didn't worked)

It unfortunately only worked with the physical CD on a VMWare virtual machine. I've been using a Windows Xp 32-bit Service pack 3.

You can install it, launch it, but nothing ever going to happen.

Oh, also forgot: the game won't run from a virtual CD-ROM. I tried everything (Daemon tools, mounting with VMWare or Virtual box virtual ROMs, Win10 "virtual ROM" with no luck.
The game only opens using the physical ROM.
Normally with a Virtual image, the game just runs in the background, and that's all. Without any error messages...

I forgot to tell; I have the EU/Windows version of the game.

I bought it, also I have the original CD of the game. If anyone can remove the DRM protection or has enough skill by making a CD crack, then I will send the .ISO from it.
Feel free to send me a message to: hdgame[at]

I'm a real person, not a robot.
