I hope this is relevant or at least helps some people out who are trying to run TPM on a new 64-bit operating system.

First, install the game on a 32-bit OS [I installed Win 98 on VMWare Player]. When completed, copy the entire contents of the game directory to 'C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\The Phantom Menace' [Where C is your Windows hard drive]

Copy the entire contents of the reg file below [including 'Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00] into Notepad and save file as Phantom.reg


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC\The Phantom Menace]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC\The Phantom Menace\v1.0]
"Executable"="C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\The Phantom Menace\\WMAIN.EXE"
"Install Path"="C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\The Phantom Menace"
"Source Path"="Z:"
"CD Path"="Z:"
"Analyze Path"="Z:\INSTALL\SysCheck.exe"
"Source Dir"="Z:"
"InstallType"=dword:00000001
"JoystickID"="1"
"SoundCard"="TRUE"


Change 'Z' to whatever letter your CD-ROM drive is.

Merge the file once saved (right click the file to bring up the option). You can now run TPM.exe

Hope this helps
