    A few years ago I purchased a program called "The Jazz Pianist" and at that time I had an early version of Windows. I lost track of the file on changing computers (and to XP) but I find I have the two original floppy disks with this title on and I would dearly like to run it however most of the files have extensions MI$ or DK.and significant file (perhaps) are INSTALL (no file extension but properties show it is a BIN file) and JAZZPIAN.EX$ . The instruction on the Floppies says "Type Install from windows". I have tried clicking on these but they obviously need something more. I have also tried going to Command Line, changing to the CD drive where I have burnt all the files (see below) and typing "Install" but this is not recognised.

    Two other points: I have tried to find the program again on the Net as I would buy it again if I could but I can't.

    Also my floppydrive has packed up (actually I get the eroor message "insert disk in drive" which seems to be a common error) so using another computer I have copied all the files onto a CD,

    I can't attach a file as the extension is not of the type permitted as an attachment.

    Is there anyway I can get this program to run?
