Game (Risk 2) won't run, even though it has worked

previously. It's one of my favourite startegy games, too. Risk 2 (or Risk II, as it's displayed on the box) by Microprose, from 2000.

Had it installed and working several times previously, but now after installation it freezes on the loading screen when I try to run it. That's all I can get, a static screen with music playing.

I haven't made any changes to my hardware for yonks, and I've tried to run it via the Compatibility Wizard or whatever it's called (using Windows 98, instead of XP which I have installed) but no joy. Would like to play it again..........
