Default FW won't run

I recently had to reformat my hard drive and reinstall everything. After I reinstalled Fantasy Wars, the game automatically started up and ran fine. However, now, when I try to run it by clicking on the shortcut--or by going to the folder and clicking on the exe file--I get a message telling me to "Please insert DVD of 'Fantasy Wars,'" even though the DVD is in the drive.

My computer specs:

Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6400+ 3.21 GHz
4 GB of RAM
ATI Radeon HD 3870 Display Adapter

Does anyone have any idea what I can do to resolve this?

Thanks

An update: I reinstalled the game several times, but it continued to fail to recognize that the DVD was in the drive. Finally, I reinstalled, but without applying the multiplayer patch. It runs now.

What am I missing without the patch?

The patch is for a different version of the game. Once you installed it the copy protection on the exe changed to some other version of the dvd.

You probably aren't missing anything.

Thanks a lot for replying. I hope you're right about not missing anything without the patch.

Now, if they could only finish Elven Legacy!
