Danny,
    From the instructions Azam gave there was one thing missing.  When you right click the game icon, select Properties, then there is a Shortcut tab with the Run dropdown box.  Also you may want to go to the compatibility tab and set compatibility to a previous version of Windows and test.  Sorry for any confusion.  Try that and let us know the results.
