The installer was written for the North American release. I won't guarantee it will work, but you could try saving the mask.exe from the new installer, then use the original installer on your disc. Replace its mask.exe with the one from the new installer. There are patches included with the new installer that won't be applied, but those may be language specific. If the EXE is compatible, at least the game should start.
