please don`t walk on the grass.

Ok so as far as I can figure it, this game is provided on this page in three formats, depending on the system you're using is the format you're going to download, for example if you have a laptop computer running windows or a desktop computer running windows you download the Windows 3.x version and then download the emulator that goes with your system to emulate Windows 3.x and then you load Windows 3.x on your emulator and from Windows 3.x you go to the directory you downloaded the game to and run it.
If you use any type of Windows and want to download the Dos version then download Dosbox and then from Dosbox you load the Dos version of the game and play it. If you have any type of Mac you download the Mac version and try it out there. If it doesn't run then Google "Amazon Trail Manuals and Hint tips" and look through the results to see which one gives you the configuration you need to run the game. From there just work with it until you find the right configuration for the game. As in everything it helps to know your system and be familiar with what you're using in order to be able to use the programs you download.
Aside from that, get to know basic commands of Dos to use Dos games, basic functions of Windows and Mac to play the games for those systems.
If you don't want to do any of that, then hire a tech guru to figure it out for you😅

.sit files are the zip files of the older (mid-90s-early 00s) mac OSs, you need an emulator to unzip and play within it, i suggest SheepShaver

Remember play'n this as a kid at the school's computer lab ALOT! Just wonder'n, I have a Windows 7 operating system... Does this game run on it OK?

jesse 2015-06-17 1 point Mac version

I opened the sit file with the program "The Unarchiver" but couldn't find out what to do with the img file after that. I don't know what program to use to mount it. I just downloaded the version for DOS instead.

I am having problems because the game is compressed as a .sit file. Can't find a way to open it

Hey :) Is there any chance I can play this on an iPad? I managed to download it using a zip app but I'm not sure how to actually open the game (if it's possible). Thanks :)

RS 2014-02-05 1 point DOS version

Too bad this one doesn't have the voices

fffffffffff 2014-01-17 -2 points DOS version

i just realised that we actually do travel in time in the game. that's why the people tell different dates

J. 2014-01-06 0 point DOS version

Yes, Dan, my bad.

Dan 2013-08-13 4 points DOS version

I have the CD version, and it ran with full functionality in Win 95 & 98. I lost sound & some game functions in XP. Even if you run it successfully without an emulator, the river and fishing modes will run too fast on a modern system. My preferred method is to run Win 3.1 inside DOSbox and play it there. That solves all sound and speed issues. You can also run Win 95 or 98 as a virtual machine inside Windows 7/8/Vista, or even on a Mac, at a reduced speed.
@Fred: This is actually the first edition of Amazon Trail. The second was actually an early-release version of the third.

@ Fred 2013-05-01 0 point DOS version

The version you're thinking of is Amazon Trail: 3rd Edition. The version they have on here is the 2nd Edition.

Dougie 2013-04-29 0 point DOS version

Wow. Every comment beneath this one is genuinely useless.

Defender 2013-04-14 0 point DOS version

D-fend Reloaded makes DOSbox easier to use.

rikka 2013-02-12 0 point DOS version

woow that is very nice

NACALAL 2012-04-30 0 point DOS version

You can run this on a WIN XP/2000 without dos box (I think)

Fred 2011-12-19 1 point DOS version

I remember this game having voice-overs. is there a link to a download that has the voice-overs in them?

EvLo 2011-11-18 0 point DOS version

guys just follow the below instructions

Deadbolt_Don 2011-10-31 0 point DOS version

there's no need to give up so easily. There are plenty of tutorials for DOSbox online that I've found very helpful. It's really not that hard.

gringo 2011-10-19 0 point DOS version

if you don't know how to run this game, then it's not the game you would like to you know what does the 320*240 resolution look like? do you know anything about DOS?
if all answers are no, then get back to your console dude !

DOSKING 2011-07-31 0 point DOS version

Use DOSBOX to play these games, people. Will not work without...

iphx 2011-07-14 0 point DOS version

i'm using window 7 and it said that it's not compatible. what to do? i wanna play this game so bad. i've been looking for this game since the last time i played in 1997.

legendman3 2011-02-20 0 point DOS version

Its 64 bit and just use dosbox to play these games :/ I use that and its just fine

Jordan 2011-02-10 0 point DOS version

For all those having trouble playing these games, scroll to the bottom of this page! Follow one of the links under "How to play abandonwares." You have to install a program called D-Fend Reloaded; there is a step by step guide provided by this website for where you should extract the .zip files so that you can play them. I'm on x64 Windows 7 and The Oregon Trail works excellently! :D

soldiergirl84 2011-02-02 0 point DOS version

I'm using Windows 7, and all I get is "cannot execute" and then it gives me the file path. What gives?

Anne 2011-01-19 0 point DOS version

Nobody's talking. ;A; The jaguar isn't talking to me in his deep, creepy, mildly rapey voice any more.

I feel a little betrayed by my childhood.

Still, thanks for uploading!

Jess 2010-12-26 0 point DOS version

I have Windows Vista and it won't install, and it said that it's not compatible with 62 bit?

childhood memories 2010-11-30 0 point DOS version

its freezing for me during the first little cutscene where it says "in your bedroom in peru" and theres a megadeth poster with a toucan superimposed over it... cant even get into the good stuff!

Nick 2010-11-20 0 point DOS version

How the heck is this supposed to play? I have it loaded, but get the to the main screen (pic 3) and don't get the icons on the bottom to start the game.

mikek 2010-11-04 0 point DOS version

i used to love this game when i was younger so i decided to try to play it agian

Okay, seriously. 2010-04-10 0 point DOS version

If you don't know what an "emulator" is, please look it up. Also, you must know basic DOS commands.

Crazyjew92 2009-11-19 0 point DOS version

Try running it on Dos-Box

amazon 2009-10-14 0 point DOS version

has anyone been able to play it on windows 7, i cant seem to play it because it says i need a different bit. A 32 bit.

Kerry 2009-09-12 0 point DOS version

Shorty 2009-06-01 0 point DOS version

What stinks is in the original game you could tel what the fudge you were canoeing on. here you can't tell if it's a whirlpool, a log or an animal...and the people don't have sound clips anymore...lame
