Check the requirements of the software and see if your PC is compliant.

If the game requires the cd in the drive and its not there, the start will often fail. You can get small .exe files to replace the games original to enable running the game without a disk in the drive. There called nocd fixes and can be found at places like, and (all start with www). You just create a temp folder under the games install directory to put the original in, and replace it with the fixed exe. Always keep a copy of the original so you can put it back when upgrading the game to a newer version and be sure to get the correct version for the game your running. Usually you can right click the games exe and select the version tab to find out what version your running but not all games allow you to see this info so its trial and error time.
