I just bought an old pc game -Admiral Sea Battles-
I've tried everything but it won't install, it wont let me choose options during the setup.
Can anyone please help????

At least fourteen years old, that game is unlikely to work on anything other than Win98, or earlier. You have not said what your OS is.

I have windows 7. Now would I have to get windows 95(thats what the game was design for) or is there a way to get it going on windows 7?

Doubt very much if Win7 will like it - I only have XP, but you could try in 'Compatibility Mode' if Win7 has that facility.

thanks. it wont work though. I think im going to have to install windows95. I dont know how to do that, do you?

I admire your persistence, I would have given up by now.

If you have a Win95 disc, it should be quite straightforward on its own - but I have never done a dual-boot install. So you will need someone else to come on and explain if it would be possible with Win7, and how to do it.

As I said - Good luck, afraid I can't help you any further.

according to this site it can be used with xp, not sure if it will be a safe download as i haven't tried it

A bit drastic isent itinstalling an old operating system for an even older game?You will probably find that your newer games wont then play.
