MINIMUM PC REQUIREMENTS
386 33MHz Processor
4MB RAM (8MB for Windows 95)
4MB Hard Disk Space
2X CD-ROM Drive
SVGA 256 color 640x480 Video Card
Windows compatible Sound Card
I highly doubt it will run in Win7. XP mode is the farthest it will reverse back to.
If you wanted to take the time to do it you may be able to install 95 in a virtual box and run it from there but I wouldn't guarantee it would work.

I bought a old Compaq desktop from a pawn shop for $25 simply because it would boot up. Since i am a packrat i still have a lot of the old hardware to keep this old computer running. I use it as my game desktop and music storage. Since i have every Myst and similar games i love being able to play them on this computer. The compaq is running XP SP3 and runs the games with no problems so far. You might look into doing it that way. I have a lot of hardware i could sell cheaply if needed, like memory sticks, graphics cards, soundblaster cards and quite a lot of the software needed to run the old hardware. Something i have not tried but may work is using windows 7 professional. Where i work they use the pro version because it will run windows XP compatable software. This allows us to keep our old SCADA system running at our plant. It may work on the games also. Just a thought.
