you could try an emulator... on my mac I use a program called DOSBox to run old DOS games - there might be a win95 emulator out there.

If it's an old windows app, try using the compatibility options (right-click on the exe), and choosing win 95/8.

Sure, right-click on the .EXE file you are running, and chose the compatibility tab, where you will see options of running in compatibility mode, and which OS to be, um, compatible with.

Some games won't work unless you give them admin privelleges too, which is an option on that page. Good luck.

I bring the old Pentium 122mhz out of the cupboard and load the games I want to play. Then after the hour it's taken to do that I load the game up and go make some food. Then after its loaded 15 minutes later, I get to enjoy moving my red pixel into the blue pixel and back again.

Fuck yes DOSBox. I still play Worms United fairly often thanks to that.

try vmware... It is like a virtual machine. You do need key code for older os...
