I cannot get Command & Conquer for Win95 to install on my Win2000 professional. I know this doesn't seem like it would in anyway but I've managed to do it on Win98, WinXP, and Windows Vista. Windows Vista actually has an option in the Start, programs ... to run old programs. Anyway it always gives me a message that says: Windows 5.0 is currently running. The version of Command & Conquer is Windows 95 product only.
I love this game & now I cannot play it. Please help me guys.

patience, but post bumping for such an easy question is justified

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
