Old games on a Vista PC?

  Sara K 18:07 14 Feb 08

I have a Vista 32 bit PC bought last year.

I have many old PC games for Windows 98 or 95 or earlier.

Some don't work at all. Is there any way to still be able to play these old games on a Vista PC?

Try them - you won't break anything!

If they don't work at first try altering the compatibility mode. If that fails - car boot sale!

If they are DOS games try DOSBOX,

I've just been playing DukeNukem and the original Doom again.

Thanks again.

I didn't even know about the compatibilty mode. I had success with the first game I ried and it didn't work before.
