Game worked great until I loaded it on my new build Windows 7 64 bit machine

I start out of course in Death of a Showman. I walk to the gate but the guard just stands there off to the left with his arms out to his sides looking like a scarecrow. He never approaches and there is no cut scene. I seem to remember getting info from the agency during the walk to the gate which does not happen either. I have reinstalled several times. Now I can not uninstall. I get a long error message when I try to uninstall:

>SetupDLL/SetupDLL.cpp (2526)
PAP:Hitman Blood Money
PVENDOR;Eidos (***IS_STRING_NOT_DEFINED***)
PGUID:A804B134-F03D-43FD-9BC0-DCD257AA1B22
$11.50.0.42618
@Windows XP Service Pack 1 (7601) BT_OTHER 0.0

(Error message has the right build and Service Pack but says XP. I'm guessing cuz Win7 wasn't born yet) Is there a patch or anything for this? Others seem to run this game on Windows 7 without issues.

Can anyone help me make the game work?

My recent new build machine:

Windows 7 Pro (x64) Service Pack 1 (build 7601)
4.05 gig AMD FX-8350 8-core processor
Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 motherboard
240 gig SS Asus BW-12B1ST HD
32 gig RAM
ZOTEC NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580

Thanks for your help
