    Playing a windows 95 or 98 cd game on Windows 7

    Banned
    Hi guys.

    As above. I bought used copies of Risk & Risk II & want to play them on my Windows 7 laptop.

    Well I have hit a brick wall & the information I can find on the net doesnt work either.

    Has anyone found an easy way to accomplish this?

    Thanks in advance.

    there was a website for playing old dos games and red alert is available online thru browser have you checked the games can't be played on these?

    install 95 and 98 as a virtual machine.

    Try downloading Dosbox

    I'd go the virtual machine route if your laptop is not too old. Or create a dual boot system and install 98 on a separate partition perhaps.

    Try and run in compatability mode?
