In case anyone is wondering, this game works fine on a Windows XP SP3 virtual machine in virtual box. I'm not sure about the versions here, but my old CD always worked fine.

You all should look into Oracle VM and running/installing 95/98 (You can install newer) and trying the old programs. Of course these old games wont play on a non-dos based operating system. Its not that the files are broken. You just need the old system or a custom emulator. (Search for it. So many step by step walk throughs. Doesnt take too long. ) Anyways. Enjoy. Im going to check out this and other games. Im loving the nostalgia.
