Use Sun Virtual Box, then install the OS that works best as a virtual machine for the game, then install the game...

You should be able to run the PC version in DOSBoX. Or the Amiga Version in any Amiga emulator.
Settlers II ran fine for me under DOSBoX so i see no reason why the original wouldnt.

Fantastic Game by the way. Great Fun

Britlady52,

Depending on the graphic requirements you might want to consider XP Mode / Virtual PC. To learn more about XP Mode please see the following link: http://bit.ly/d8i7Sb

Thanks Jessica, Marcellis & Vampyrbyte ... all your suggestions were greatly appreciated.

In the end I chose to go with Vampyrbyte's solution - using DOS Box - and the game is now installed and up and running. (Oh those wonderful memories of the Amiga days!! I also have Smidge/Morton Strikes back installed too).

My thanks again to all - Stay happy - Terri :-)
