Great! But the SNES version is bar none the best version! Still, Thank you very very much for uploading this! I loved this game growing up!

For those who cannot get the program running:
Open the POP.BAT file, not POPULOUS.EXE.

Try the Amiga version with a decent emulator.
Works for Me.

As another poster has mentioned, I can only run the keyboard editor, but not the POPULOUS.EXE file with DOSBox. Also, this game is currently on GOG, is this correlated?

I bought this game on origin and I couldn't even activate. Now I had it for free and it works.

The gog.com download is not free, so why is it there? This site is supposed to be about freeware
