didn't plan to install it right now, but check your registry:
start->execute type "regedit" enter
registry editor should pop up
look what's under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->SOFTWARE->Microsoft->DirectPlay->Applications and compare bop large to other working installs
especially check if CurrentDirectory and Path is set right

Edit: wait, you say SP doesn't work either, than why bother with wz?
in that case, beside stbof.ini I only know to check the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->SOFTWARE->Microprose registry folder

HTH :)

Had the same problem some days ago. As it turned out, it was some Anti-Virus update again...
