No such luck on this end. When I double click my SETUP.EXE that is found on my CD, I get the following error verbatim: "The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32 bit) or x64 (64 bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher." I am assuming the above error is because I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. This is why I directly copied the CIV2 folder and CIV2.EXE to my hard drive and tried the Mastermind patch, since I thought that it was supposed to fix this issue. Still no luck. Thanks for the heads up!
