    Windows 95/98 games on Windows 10 issues

    by brutal_moose ·

    Hello there, I am trying to install several Windows 95/98 games onto a new Windows 10 computer. They do not require DOS, they are CD games that can be launched from the desktop. I have gone to dozens of websites, and followed their instructions, but it still does not work. I get the same error for all of them. It says “This app can’t run on your PC”

    I have already tested every combination of the Windows application compatibility modes: 256 color, 16 bit, windows 95/98/xp/7, run admin, all that. I have also used the compatibility troubleshooter. I have turned off Smart Screen filter I believe. I was told this error comes from Smart Screen, but I think I turned that off in the Settings panel.

    I am here asking for a solution that does not include virtualizations, such as VMWare, DOSBox, or VirtualBox.

    Why is this error happening, and how do I install these games for my customer? How do I avoid not only this error, but all problems and errors that might occur? Thank you, I appreciate your help.
