Well, if you are really desperate you can always try the Microsoft
Application Compatibility Toolkit. It has an entry for Dungeon Keeper 1 and
2, so there is a good chance you can get it running. Unfortunately it
doesn't seem to have been updated for Vista yet and the built-in fixes don't
always work, but its a try. Running the MACT is a little tough to figure out
but it allows the system to ignore (essentially to turn on and off) old
features that no longer function. I've used it with some old games and got
them running but it is kind of a hit-and-miss process. Looking at the
built-in fix, it appears that sound is a major element of what they were
solving. You might try running the game without any sound at all and see if
it will run.
You can download the MACT at:
Hope that helps!
