After I unzip it, I open a dos window, run the install, and all I get is "cannot start due to an incompatibility with 64 bit version of windows". Can you PLEASE, PLEASE help me? I used to be a computer guru, but I guess not anymore, and I LOVE this game!

Thank you all!

Compatibility mode likely won't work. With old 16 bit programs you likely will need to use DOSBox to install and run them, 16 bit programs don't work in 64 bit Windows at all.
