You need Vista or Windows 7 to run it. Also your cpu isn't capable either.

Actually it is compatible with XP but there's no way it will run properly on your hardware.

You can always compare on Can You Run It? - which offers a guide to how suitable your specs are for the game (I think there are other similar sites around that do the same too)

You didn't mention why it wasn't working though - a bit more information would be useful!
