    Have you tried to run it in compatibility mode?

    If you right click the executable file and got to properties and then go to the compatibility tab.

    Within this tab, there should be a checkbox that states Run this program in compatibility mode for:, check this box and then within the the drop box select Windows 95.

    Give this a shot and let me know how it goes

    Chances are pretty small that it will run on Windows 95 at all, ever.

    Actually the game game out in 1998... here is the requirements:

    Minimum System Requirements:
    Windows 95 compatible system
    Intel Pentium 133 (recommended Pentium 200)
    4MB Video Card (8MB 3D accelerator recommended)
    32MB RAM
    4x CD-ROM
    DirectX 5.0 compatible sound card (AWE64 or XG-MIDI compatible recommended

    However it would probably be better and cheaper to get a PS One and the game...

    Anyways, you are on a Windows 7 64bit system... I don't think you can get that working on that without compatibility mode...

    Actually I don't think it will work even with compatibility mode. The game had issues running under 98 even. (Horribly coded port.) Best bet is probably an emulator like Virtual PC.

    If you have a PS3 or a PSP you can get the game on PSN for less than $10 if that ever decides to come back up.

    :) PSN did come back up and indeed the port was really bad... same for FF8. The only problem with Virtual PC is that it won't like having a 'virtual GPU'... at least I have never got a game to work in VPC. Only DOSBOX and old DOS games I can get to work.

    Well maybe not Virtual PC. Virtualbox seems to work pretty good though. And it's free. Kind of a pain in the butt to get it up and running though.
