hello i have carnivores2 (a game) and it only works on the win98,win95 and ME operation platforms, the problem is i have 2 computers (1 winXP and 1 win2000pro) and i wonna put the game on one of them witouth making a second partition to install 95,98,me. Is this possible, by for example a virtual computer like the macintosh computers use so they can use the winapplications? or is there any other way ?

edit: and before i forget, hello people cause im new here :stuck_out_tongue:

Have you already tried running it?
Most games should be no problem under Windows 2000 and even less chance on problems with Windows XP…

To unlock compatibility mode in Windows 2000 (SP4) go to Run menu and type

regsvr32 %systemroot%\AppPatch\slayerui.dll

Then make a shortcut to the executable. If the CD won’t let you install, make a shortcut to the installer on the CD. Right click the shortcut and now there is a compatibility tab, where you can select Windows 95/Windows 98/Windows NT4 SP5 mode.
