Problem trying to play PREY

I'm trying to play the game PREY and it won't even start up. I keep getting this error. Any ideas.
using ARB_vertex_buffer_object memory
using ARB2 renderSystem
found DLL in pak file: C:\Program Files\Prey\base\game00.pk4/gamex86.dll
copy gamex86.dll to C:\Program Files\Prey\base\gamex86.dll
could not create destination file

My PC is a Dell 9200. 2gb Ram, Dual 186ghz, 256mb ATI X1300 Pro.
I have downloaded the most upto date drivers and still no joy. The game states that it does support my graphics card.

Hi citadel,

Just before i install the patchs, could it be VISTA causing the problem

It could, you never said you were using Vista and theres no way we could know this as Vista has its own Forum.
Does Prey run under Vista is the question and as I use XP I don't know the answer.
