I get an incompatibility message when trying to install BreakThru! by Spectrum Holobyte on my Windows 7 machine. I have tried the troubleshooting. Is there some kind of emulator I can use - it worked fine when I was running Windows XP.

If this is a 16 bit game and you are running a 64 bit OS, then it won't run. So, if you went from XP to Win 7 x64 and it's a 16 bit game, it will not work. If it's a 32 bit game, you can try changing the compatability mode of the program to XP.
