I should also mention that I have about as much luck as… something very, very unlucky. I don't even know. Most of the discs didn't work, even when using compatibility mode. This is because some of them were strictly DOS, which is fine because it is a windows game. I remember the shareware disc interface being very much graphic and using the mouse.
Do you know how to use Dosbox? In case you want to play other old games that program will be your best friend. I can give you the basics if you're interested.

Also, many old windows programs might prove tricky to run in straight up Win7/Vista/8, but there are ways around it. One is to set up a virtual machine, and the other is to simply install an OS in Dosbox (I've in the past installed Win 3.11 in it).
