Right-click the setup file and choose the Compatibility tab. Choose Windows 98 and Apply. Try to install.

If it installs, then do the same thing to the shortcut to the game so that it runs under Win 98.

Then it looks like you need Windows 98 or ME. If you have a copy, you can run it inside XP in a virtual machine.

www.virtualbox.org
Or get the free Virtual PC from Microsoft.

No. The game says that you need 98, so that is what you will need to do if you want to run it. Or try exchanging it for the correct version if there is one.

is it a DOS game? Some Windows 98 games were in DOS so you may need DOSBOX to play it.

There are a few games/versions of Commandos.
Exactly which game are you playing...what is the full title of the game?
