Hey all...my friend's son is 21 but is autistic and has ordered some games that are for younger children, but it looks like they are from the Win95 years. His computer runs XP and has NEVER been connected to the internet...same as you would for a 3rd grader. I have tried to install these 2 games using the compatibility feature on the properties tab, but I am getting a message that the file cannot be found, even though I am trying to start it from the explorer....so I can see that it is there on the CD drive.

Any suggestions or help would be appreciated as my little buddy is desperate to have these games installed asap!

You can give DOSBOX a try. I don't know if it allows Win95 games or not but it's worth a try.
