Which OS are you using?
CFS1 appeared about the same time as Windows 98 but also worked when run in Windows 95 mode...
I run it in Windows XP but I've also added some older .dll's to the Windows system folders for some of the extras to work.

My old cfs1 didn't gave me problems installing it on win7 64 pro.
I did as ozzy said and it runs like a charm.
Dont use it that much, but there are some missions i like to review once in a while 8-)
