I have no idea what could be going wrong. I havent tried out Windows 8 yet. I was told to stay away from it for now.

But its certainly somewhat that will need adressing in the future. If anyone has any information relevant to the problem or what would be needed to fix the problem, it would be appreciated.

Hey Seeker,
I got the exact same Problem...
First after installing the game on Windows 8 64-bit it says ' this application can be launched with a release... 98/me/nt4.0/2000 .. '
And after installing both patches, It flashes for a second and then goes back to desktop. You can even see the Cossacks2-logo pop up in the task-bar for half-a-second.
I really hope someone got a solution for this.

If I were you guys I would either do a dual boot, or use a virtual OS.  That's the only way that I know of that allows the game to play. 

Here is some info.
