Question Problems Installing Game!!!

I bought Mechwarrior 3 today, a fairly old game, and tried to install it onto my computer. Everything seems to be installing correctly with no errors, however when i try to play the game, a message pops up and says, "Mechwarrior 3 has encountered a problem and needs to close." and at the bottom of the message box it asks if i want to send an error report or "don't send". I have tried un-installing the game and re-installing it and still the same results. Can someone please help?!

P.S. My computer by far exceeds the minimum requirements needed to play the game.

I also have had problems playing older games on newer systems. My guess is that its an old game meant to be played on older systems. Make yourself an older Good PC you should have the knowledge to make a decent oldie but goodie. and try that
