Is Art-A-Saurus bundled with this download? Been thinking of getting win3.x emulator and want to know so that I am able to get it and be able to get the soundtrack as well.

So, the issue is that while the game is 32 bit, the installer is 16 bit. This was common back then, the InstallShield v3 (the 16 bit) was cheaper to license than the InstallShield v5 (the 32 bit.) has instructions for how to fix this.

Someone help it won't let me install the game. I have a windows 10 computer! A popup comes up everytime I try to install it and it says "sorry install not available" Please help someone

Just a heads up, this cant be installed on a x64 bit machine. There is a workaround that MAY works but i can't guarantee it. I used this method on SimPark and it worked just fine but yeah, no guarantee.
The Trick is to install this game in a 32xbit environment, either trough a Virtual Machine on your Computer or a second computer or the computer of friend. Then you take the folder of the installed game, put it on a USB Stick or wherever and transfer it onto your "main" machine... For SimPark i was able then to play the game, may work with other games too. ... Or you just stick with the Virtual Machine .
