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.

I do not know how to do what you described as a virtual PC? Can you explain more? Thanks Score 0 Herr_Koos November 19, 2010 6:00:59 AM before we get to virtual PC's, are these games able to work in DOS? Score 0 rockman_01 November 25, 2010 11:49:00 PM I am not sure?? They both say Win 95 cd's Do you recommend I try them in a program such as DosBox? Thanks Score 0 Herr_Koos November 26, 2010 5:56:18 AM If they are Win 95 only, they won't work in DOSBox, but give it a try and get back to me. Score 0 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
