    Hello all,
    I hope I am posting this in the appropriate forum. My question is regarding some old games I have for Windows 95. I used to play these on an old computer I had and would like to play them again. I no longer have a computer with the Windows 95 operating system. Is there any way to get these game discs to work on my current computer which operates with Windows XP? Is there something I can download to get them to work or do I have to go to Goodwill and find a bulky used computer which has Windows 95 on it?
    Thanks in advance for any help!
    Heidi

    Dosbox should work or you could find a copy of Windows 95/98 and install it to an external Drive. shouldn't be to hard to find a Copy on the net given you know where to look. i cant just link it to you (See Note:)

    Note: while Microsoft no longer updates, maintains or sells the 9x OS, they still have an active copyright on the above products.
