Port royale 2

To start with my apologies if i put this in the wrong section but after 3 hours of searching and reading posts i'm numb and seeing letters flying past

The problem is i have an original cd for port royale 2, now i think as far as i understood most other posts i could find, that it is normal that i get an error message saying this is not the right cd since i'm using windows 7. correct me if i'm wrong btw
Now i already bought another copy online from dotemu which worked about a year and a half ago. Now as far as that is right it doesn't work anymore since my drivers have been updated past a certain level and since the game is too old it just won't start up and will only be displayed in the processe running on the computer. Also setting back the drivers to a previous state doesn't work since even that one is past the level that still worked...

So now i can't use the one i bought about 2years ago and my original cd he won't even recognize and i read and found certain things about patches but i'm not eve sure if that will fix my problem...even if i could get the original game to work with for example a nocdpatch/crack...i'm guessing it won't run because of the windows7 and my drivers being to far up to date???

Anyone that can tell me if i'm completely missing the ball here and if there is a solution? I would be very thankful since i bought the latest version port royale 3, but that isn't near as good as the old one sadly enough

tyvm and i'm hoping someone finds the courage to read all this and has the knowledge to help me.
