You need to update your DirectX drivers.  You can find the latest drivers at Microsoft's site, but the game probably has them on the CD.  Look for a directx directory, and run setup.

I tryed DirectX 5.2 (comes with the game) -that didnt work
Then i got DirectX 6 which upgraded all the files to 4.06 and 4.08

Now my drivers are at 4.03 and 4.00 can that effect the game?
I tryed getting the upgrades for drivers too, but on DirX info screen they still show up as 4.03 and 4.00

There is a patch for mc that fixes some problems at microprose support. Also are you running a cyrix chip?

Go to start / settings / control panel / system. if you are using a cyrix, it will show up as CyrixInstead in the processor. In older versions of win95 it will identify as a 486

You must to following steps :

1 - Defrage Your Hardisk with Optimizing it.
2 - Then Try to uninstall the program
3 - Install it again

If Doesn't Work this mean that the library files doesn't compatible with Windows 95 32 Bits
