Hi does the c: drive mount correctly?

Hmm..when I try to run Quest for Glory the C drive mounts and it attempts to run the scidhuv.exe, but then the exe gives me the error "Couldn't install video driver! Script#: 0, IP: 0"

Is Windows XP just not compatible with this particular game?

I was really hoping you could help me...
Everything in the game works fine but when I open the status screen (the screen where your heroes attributes are displayed) the game always crashes on me!!!
Any help would be great...
