Game won't start

HI all, ive been playing this game for a while now. However i stopped a week ago and decided to start again today. Problem is the game doesnt start up at all. I pop in the cd, hit start game but i get nothing. I have 1.3 and its worked fine until now. Directx is updated and video drivers are fine. Any suggestions as to how i can fix this?

Do you have any thing running in the back ground? Have you added anything to your PC since you last played? Think if you've changed anything at all. Also, do you start your game from the CD? Or direct from the desktop? If you do the latter, see what happens.

Try a re-install. Most odd this. Un-install the game and select the 'repair' option.

If you have any mods installed that use XML files, it's possible that there's a syntax error in one of them; sometimes the game refuses to start when it can't parse an XML file.
