Inside the extracted folder, go to:

Oregon Trail 1.2\OTWIN32\OREGON32.exe

Right click OREGON32, go to Properties, set compatibility to Windows 95, then run. Sound will now work. I use Windows 10.

Penso que o problema com o Windows se relaciona com a versão. è necessário para correr a versão de 64 bits

Treselle 2021-08-26 0 point

Some of us made it first time but Jed and Sara died. I was good with it though. They were a scroggin' together within a month we set out. Jed was my friend and Sara my wife.

Simply does not work on Windows 10. Windows gives the error message that this game can't run, I've even tried in compatibility mode but to no avail. Guess it would have to be run in an emulator or something.

Who knew it was possible to get dysentery before doing anything?

oregonlovah 2020-01-02 0 point

(FOR CHROME USERS) to play the oregon trail, when the game is downloading, right click link on the arrow, then when the menu comes up, click "Open When Done, so chrome opens the oregon trail for you!

I play oregan trail on my little tablet I enjoy the game

Joe 2019-07-02 130 points

I remember this game with music at the landmarks, does this not have it as a feature?

Me 2019-05-29 2 points

I should have done this.
- Open the OTWIN32 folder. Save a copy of OREGON.INI to your desktop just to be safe.

- Open the configuration settings file OREGON.INI. It should open in Notepad.

- There is an arrow symbol at the bottom of the text that should not be there. Just delete it.

- Close and save the file. When you run OREGON32.EXE, it should run with full sound. :)

I had lots of fun playing this game in middle school. It was scary sometimes...but mostly it made me think about decision making.

Kim 2017-05-12 0 point

I can get sound to work by running in Windows 95 compatibility mode, but the screen size is small, and no way to maximize. I am using Windows 10, 64bit.

Trail Guide 2016-06-14 16 points

To make it go full screen, select the "Run at 640 X 480 screen resolution" option, which is found under the Compatibility tab. Also select "Disable visual themes" if you want to save your games. My machine is Windows 7 32 bit, and Oregon Trail 1.2 needs to be run in Windows 95 Compatibility Mode. Happy Trails!

Jason 2016-05-03 0 point

I got it working in Windows 7 64 bit by setting 95 compatibility on the icon. However its a very small window, and ALT TAB doesn't make it go full screen. Are there any other tricks you guys know of to run it full screen?

AniTendobros 2016-03-07 -2 points

Just drag the .exe file for the game to DosBox, and it works fine. If not, right-click on oregon32.exe. Then, click on properties. Select "Compatability", and select Windows 95. Just open it up.

Retro1^ 2015-10-19 0 point

For 64bit use DOSBOX. Simply Drag the Oregon Trail exe are dos file right into DOSBOX. Your game will load with no issues. Im using the same method

zeya69 2015-08-28 1 point

lets hope it works for 64bit! Thanks for the download!!! :)

Trail Guide 2015-08-26 1 point

To get the music and voices to work properly, you need to run oregon32.exe in Windows 95 Compatibility Mode. Happy Trails!

Heather 2015-08-14 -2 points

KT said to delete the arrow in oregon.INI. however, there is not arrow there for me to delete and the sound does not work when playing the game. The music files is just below oregon.ini and oregon32.exe and play whenever I open the files in windows media player. How do i get them to play in the game as well as the character's voices?

This is exactly the same version of Oregon Trail I had on my home computer when I was in elementary school! I'm SO glad I found it. I'm also using Windows 7 and got the sound to work by doing the following:

- Open the OTWIN32 folder. Save a copy of OREGON.INI to your desktop just to be safe.

- Open the configuration settings file OREGON.INI. It should open in Notepad.

- There is an arrow symbol at the bottom of the text that should not be there. Just delete it.

- Close and save the file. When you run OREGON32.EXE, it should run with full sound. :)

Happy trails, kiddos!

Pinky 2013-07-04 -1 point Windows version

I got this version to run in Windows 7, by running the game as mentioned above, though the music and voices don't play. The rest of the sound effects work just fine though! It's awesome to be able to play this game again!
