If the game is installed to C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86) then uninstall and reinstall to somewhere Windows doesn't consider a "protected" location. If the game is from Big Fish, the install location is an option in the Big Fish client.

You can also try making a shortcut directly to the game exe -- don't use the shortcut Big Fish makes -- and set the shortcut to the game exe to run as Administrator.

The game is from 17 years ago (year 2000), and who knows what Big Fish did to try to "update" it to run on newer systems. But it is certainly going to be different from the recent games they've published -- or any game made for XP, Vista or later as opposed to Windows 95/98.

Make sure to uninstall the Big Fish version first, as well as whatever QuickTime version may have installed with the game. If the QuickTime uninstaller prompts for whether to leave any bits of QuickTime behind, be sure to tell it to remove all of it. Reboot afterwards.

You can always write to Big Fish Customer Support and tell them that you couldn't get the game working right on your computer. I am sure they would give you a coupon code for a free game as a replacement.
