Default Help with an old game

Please don't mock, but while waiting for Halo 3, having enough cash for Bioshock and then Mass Effect, I've been finishing off old games; LOTR; BFME is done, and now I'm (dredging the bottom of the barrel) trying to run Blair Witch Part One: Rustin Parr. However when trying to run it, it crashes almost immediately to desktop with : "Failed, error 1"
Google has failed me, however my poor, elderly memory thinks there was a fix for this, but maybe not offical.
Any help much appreciated.

Cheers
