Probably IE issue. Doesn't support modern IE versions. It would probbaly require same code modifications as NHL04 to get working on modern machines as the base interface is mainly the same.

The game is a piece of junk compared to NHL04 so why even bother?

I don't know, I was able to run an unmodified NHL 2004 on my Windows 10 machine, which comes with IE11 and Edge.

Yes you might be able to run it and get to the menu but can't open / play a season, for example.

Well, looks like it's a lost cause if no one will help to get it fixed, shame, luckily i'm on Windows 7 on which i can downgrade my IE to make it run, but such a loss for those with modern OS. Trent, it might be piece of junk compared to NHL 2004 for you, but for guys like me, i enjoy NHL 2003 as much as NHL 2004 with it's colorful commentary, first iteration of Dynasty mode called Franchise mode and it's quirkiness in general. So for me that just sucks that i can't play it anymore if i decide to upgrade my OS due to the same self-destruct mechanism as NHL 2004.
