    I found some very old game that I played in the past. Here is the link to the site when you can download it for free:

    I'm not good with computer, so I have to ask you for help. I have Windows XP, but it's working (probably) in dos, but I'm not sure at all. How can I run this game from Windows or any other way? Thank you for any help. Adam

    Have you installed it yet? If you did and it won't run, have you tried R. clicking the program's icon and choosing Windows 95 from the Compatibility tab?

    Yes, but it still don't want to run. Black window showed for a moment and disappear one second later. Maybe it's something more serious...

    Check out the program "Dosbox". It should emulate older DOS-based operating systems. That may be what you need.
