WIndows XP Pro.

I am trying to find a way to install older software, like stuff that came out during Win 95, on an XP based machine. I know you can tell XP to install it with 95 setup, but I have some older games that when you put the cd in, it pops up saying that it can only be installed on a computer with Win 95. Is there a way around this or do I need to duel boot my computer. Thank you, any and all help is welcomed.

So what is this 'stuff' ? If it's DOS based, you can try DosBox, an emulator for DOS under Win2k & XP.

Well yes some DOS based stuff but mostly Windows 95 software like games that when I bought them, said for windows 95. so now when I go to install then on my XP based machine it says that it can not install because windows 95 was not detected.

Most of those should work under the correct Win95 compatibility mode, as well as the DOS emulator. Give it a try.

OK TY I will. but one of the games I can not get to work is a game called "Driver". Every time I try to install it, it tells me I have to have Windows 95 in a pop up and then it cancelles out the install.
