What is the exact error message you receive?
What are the specs of your PC?

I remember Oregon Trail and Carmen Santiago from my days.
Many years ago it was to run om 95/98 computers.
If you purchased Oregon Trail 5th edition then it only runs on "System Compatibility
Windows 98/2000/Me/XP". Oregon Trail 5th edition.
You can get it to run on XP but theres some work involved. Read Here and Here
The System Requirements for 5th Edition are XP and Vista.
I would say that to install the 5th edition you need to "emulate" windows 95.
So what I have found is that it will not run on a windows 95 unless it is a original copy.
I have not looked at Carmen Santiago but it is probably the same.

Can you post a screen shot of the error message? please
To do this, get the error message on screen > press the print screen button (Prt Scrn) > open Paint > click edit > click paste > click file > click save as > save the file.
Once you've saved the file reply to my message > scroll down to attachment editor > click browse > browse to where you saved the file > click open and then click upload. This will upload the screen shot so I can have a look at it.
Which Carmen Sandiego game are you referring to as there are at least 18 of them?
Also can you post your PC specs?
Belarc should work OK on Windows 95, download it, install it and it should display a html with your specs. I only need the operating system, processor, system model, memory module, main circuit board and drives categories, the rest I don't need.

Right click over the shortcut and click properties, this will display all the properties of the shortcut.
What does the the target line say?
Does the folder it links to exist?

For instance, I found the one I own of Oregon Trail.
It is Oregon Trail 2 and states on the box it is windows 3.1 and windows 95 compatible.
