Got a fresh copy of Mafia for my laptop. When I try to run it on Windows 8 a pop up appears called compatibility assistant which says it's adjusting the compatibility. But still won't run which is odd because it installed perfectly.

Tinkered with it using the compatibility trouble-shooter and almost got a result but now when I select it I receive a blank white window with a three z's header and a text box saying generic error

That's strange. I have mafia on my windows 8 and I don't have any problems. Maybe try to run it with admin mode.

Try adding the Mafia game.exe to your Windows DEP exceptions list. It should work fine.

I think if the above solutions doesn't work then you must need to install a fresh copy of window 8 or purchase/download another copy of Mafia.

Here i have successfully played it on Win-8.1

Me too! I play Mafia 1 on Win 8.1 PC, in Compatibility Mode and it works! I have the game from the internet, and there are no problems with it.
