Trying to run a DOS game on Vista home premium 64-bit.
I am trying to run jazz jackrabbit, keeps giving me an error message telling me to check whether the software is designed for 32-bit or 64-bit... Anyone know how to get around this?

the game jazz jackrabbit can be downloaded here:

---(by the way, is it legal to download a game from this site? The game is over 10 years outdated...)
Never mind... the first episode is shareware...

Shareware distributions are fine. Distribute them until the cows come home.
Just because the game's 15 years old doesn't mean it's out of copyright, it won't be out of copyright for the best part of the rest of the century.

Not all older software runs in modern day environments. You may have to use a copy of Virtual PC, install some form of DOS into that and use this game in there to play it.
