I am trying to install Railway Tycoon Gold Edition onto XP (new computer not upgrade version of XP).
However, although the programme itself has installed I cannot start from the play game screen. XP is telling me that CDFS is 0 bytes and the total size is 356mb.
Microsoft help seems to suggest a VB CD upgrade. Any other suggestions?

The Extensible Firmware Interface shell only recognizes the FAT and FAT32 file systems. The CD-ROM File System (CDFS) is not supported from the Extensible Firmware Interface shell. The EFI 1.1 specification does not define the support of CDFS.
To obtain access to the contents of a CDFS partition, boot into Windows. The CD-ROM contents can be displayed by using My Computer, Windows Explorer, or from a command prompt.
This behavior is by design.
You can obtain access to some files on a CD-ROM in a Windows XP-based computer from the Extensible Firmware Interface shell. This is because the Windows XP CD-ROM has two partitions. One partition is FAT and the other is CDFS. The FAT partition contains the Setupldr.efi and the \EFI\BOOT\Bootia64.efi files. The FAT partition is "seen" from the Extensible Firmware Interface shell. The CDFS partition contains all of the remaining Windows Setup files and is not seen in the Extensible Firmware Interface shell.
