  1. Try changing the Compatibility mode settings for the game. Right-click on the game's executable, select Properties, and the look for the Compatibility settings. Try running it as an older version of Windows.
  2. Thanks I have tried that but with no success.
    Any other suggestions?
    Thanks
  3. How old are these games exactly? You may have to try installing an older operating system in a virtual PC.

    The games are mid 1990's.
    I do not know how to do what you described as a virtual PC? Can you explain more?

    Thanks
  5. before we get to virtual PC's, are these games able to work in DOS?
  6. I am not sure?? They both say Win 95 cd's

    Do you recommend I try them in a program such as DosBox?

    Thanks
  7. If they are Win 95 only, they won't work in DOSBox, but give it a try and get back to me.
