Hello, I'm trying to install QUAKE1 onto my windows 7 laptop, Dell, all up-to-date, no virus, or spyware to interfere, And I pop in the Quake Disc, and I click install and this pops up all the time

Message I get while trying to run Quake.

The program or feature "\??\E:\DEICE.EXE" cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit windows compatible version is available.

I tried the Windows Resulotion to try to make it 32bit but that did not do no good, and i went under to set the game for compatibile to Windows 95/98 and still no changes is there anything i can do to get this classic game running? Thanks, And my nephew he has windows xp and we install it on there but he just gets a black screen with the noise but no graphics, So Hopefully I can get it running on mind.... Thanks....

Nicole....

Quake was released in 1996 and written to run in DOS. To run this in Windows 7 x64 you will need a DOS emulator. There is a freeware version available from DOSBox.
http://www.dosbox.com/
Quake is listed as compatible with the latest version of DOSBox.

You should have no problem finding someone at their forum, with Quake, to help you with installing a running DOSBox.
