Check the game manufacturers website for possible patches that are available. I was getting the same message trying to play Rollercoaster Tycoon 'Loopy Landscapes' on WinME. I went to the site, jit-up the patch, works fine now.

many games will play in win 2k but a bunch still do not. try the website and download suggestion. another option is to dual boot. however you would have wanted to install win 98se first then win 2k since win 98 can overwrite files needed by win2k to boot.
