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.... .
(I tried dosbox and I just don't know how to work it, XD and I don't want to mess nothing up, is there any other ways to get quake working?

On the install disk you would find two files resource.1 and resource.dat. Copy resource.1 over to a folder say C:\Quake. Then rename it from resource.1 to resource.LZH. Now you can open this renamed file using a tool like 7-Zip or WinRAR. Extract all the files to the folder C:\Quake. You would find Quake.exe extracted from this LZH file. Double click on Quake.exe to play the game.

If you cannot play Quake.exe due to incompatibility, then you can use DirectQ. Just drop DirectQ in the same folder as Quake.exe and run DirectQ.exe. For more information visit this page.

Just googled this site : http://quakeone.com/
You would find much useful information there related to playing Quake 1 on Windows 7.
