Anyone has any idea of running this game on newer OS?

The compatibility mode didn't work when I tried it.

Well of course you can't run it natively on Windows 7.


Get DosBox and it'll work quite fine though.

You won't be running DOS games on Windows 7 without using DOSBox... and I've yet to find a DOS game that won't run in DOSBox.

Do you have the Windows 98 collector's edition version or the DOS version?

DOSbox is your friend.
