Limnut's instructions helped, but the game's videos would stutter until I set the compatibility mode to "Windows 95", then it ran without hiccups!
I don't know of a way to view the game in a 4:3 aspect ratio though.

Hi from 2020 Dec,
I spent 5 hours trying to install the game and hopes this works for you.
1. Install Virtual CloneDrive
2. Run Setup.exe
If not working:
- right click; send to desktop (create shortcut)
- right click on icon; Properties; Compatibility tab; "Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP (Service Pack 2), Reduced color mode, Run in 640 x 480 screen resolution
3. If setup 32 not working:
Solution: go to Task Manager, on the details tab, right click on setup.exe and 'analyze wait chain', this may show you the program that is blocking the installation from continuing. In my case it was Evernote, I closed it and it worked again.

4. Install DirectX (old version) if you face an error after setting up
Head here:,DirectX%20errors%20should%20be%20fixed.

5. Restart computer
6. Run Setup.exe again

This is not a DOS game but a windows game hence wont work on DOS.

i loved this game so much when i was little, but math was not my strong suit, so i was really bad at it lol. now i'm downloading it as a senior environmental science major in college, and maybe i can finally beat it. this game rocks.

Hi, I have a hp laptop, looking for my son to play while schools out, I’ve downloaded it but it doesn't work, is it possible to download the whole game? Or do I have to try and find it on eBay and buy an external drive thing? Someone please help. Thank you.

So great to replay some old memories. Although not the strongest title in the series, still a must-play for any child going through 3rd grade!
Worked perfectly after installing Virtual CloneDrive to help it out

I loved these games as a kid, and I am wanting my daughter to be able to play them. I have a Acer Chromebook 15, would I be able to download this to it?

Hi, I have a hp laptop, looking for my son to play while schools out, I’ve downloaded it but it doesn’t say I have it anywhere on the computer, is it possible to download the whole game? Or do I have to try and find it on eBay and buy an external drive thing? Someone please help. Thank you.

Download virtual box and install windows 98.
Install the game within virtual box it should work.
Sometimes you can extract files from the virtual machine to make the game work on W7 or W10. I did this to get Sim theme park running on W10

To everyone wondering about the British accents, look at the download button, that's the British flag, so, yeah, this isn't the American version.

Kathleen Berger 2019-02-18 -7 points

Is there away to play this game on windows 10 and if so how do you do it?

Draggy 2018-12-26 2 points

I loved this game as a kid, and want to play it again now!
But I'm pretty sure they didn't have british accents, is there another version of the game?
If I find my old cd, I'll make an iso with it and upload it here!

Mr.Farmcat 2018-12-09 -7 points
