Are you sure the CD is inserted into the same drive you installed from? That is the most common cause of this issue (installing from say drive E: and trying to run from D: )

Run the game, and write down the exact words of the error message, then do a search with them at this site:

yeah i use daemon tools too. It plays the game faster than if u use ur cd drive, and it also prevent the cd from getting scrratched up and stuff coz it jst stays in the cd case! u hav to use daemon tools tho, because otherwise if u use other emulation programs like CloneCD or Alcohol 120% the game dusnt work properly. I tried playing it while i had Alcohol installed and the game went all fuzzy. i uninstalled alcohol it strtd wrkin fine agen. also, u dont need to install the patch if uv got the expansion pack (University) bcoz that has it inbuilt in2 it.
