I installed it successfully and it appears under the virtual program files folder, and looks like it should work. But whenever I start it, the screen just goes blank. The disc stops spinning.

The CD is not needed with any recent patch.

Have you followed the howto on AppDB? (Set opengl mode and deleted the
