This message is caused by the compatibility option set for the game's executable. You can disable it. Be warned, however, that since this game is old it may not function properly or cease to function at all under modern OSes without running it with these options enabled. I haven't done any testing on this. Before doing this I'd recommend to backup your save files.
Locate the executable for the game (game.exe), open Properties, Compatibility tab and uncheck the options '''Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and 'Run this program as an administrator'.
As for the configuration dialog, there is no way that I know of that it can be skipped.
