You need to try running it in compatibility mode.

:flowers:

Seeing as a lot of the Games for WIN98 were DOS Based, you could try downloading Free Dosbox from here?

http://www.dosbox.com/download.php?main=1

Worth a Try? I use it on my Computer, XP, for when the Kids want to play their old Games, it works well. It just emulates the DOS System that XP can not recognise now.

I used to have a dual Boot of WIN98SE and WINXP, just for their Games until I found Dosbox.

:thumbsup:

It would be helpful to know what the game is.
