I just recently bought X-COM Ufo defense. It is supposed to be compatible with Windows Vista. No matter what file I click on I can get the game to install. Does anyone know how to install the game or have any suggestions for me?

Hi,

It seems there is a longer process to installing. Because the game was originally DOS you need like you say DosBox.

Now have a read through This is will tell you how to mount your disk in DosBox. There is more help for DosBox HERE if required.

The last guide will tell you also how to mount and run the game itself. Hopefully not to confusing :)

No problem glad to help :)

I actually installed it and played it earlier so you've made me go all retro :)
