I'm a seasoned SQL Server developer and database administrator currently living in Boston, MA with me, myself, and far too much spare time.

I am currently seeking new employment opportunities.

Tried this before, and tried again. Screen remains black. Granted, the UI widgets are there. You can in theory, by luck, click around and get the game to quit, but everything is still black.

I've gotten it working before under Windows 7 64-bit in a VM (and have 17 other equally old games working fine). The problem is I don't remember how to get this one working, and Googling hasn't provided answers. There's just forum posts of "Oh, but it works for me". A second physical computer is not an option when VMs work fine. ALT+ENTER does nothing. The game's windowed mode is normally triggered under the options menu. The issue is either getting it to work while still in full-screen mode, or figuring out how to set windowed mode without having to do it through the game itself.
