After installing the older game, have you tried running it in compatibility mode for one of the older versions of Windows?

I believe to run it in compatability mode, all you have to do is Right Click the program (or the shortcut I think) and click Run In Compatability Mode.

Now, this doesn't work on all games but should on most.
