since upgrading my computer to windows xp home edition with sp3, it won't let me install or run old pc arcade games that are 16 bit. are there patches for these games ( galaxian, galaga, donkey kong, pacman, and mspacman) or is there a way i can get these old pc 16 bit games to install and play on a 32 bit or 64 system like xp w/sp3 or vista. email me at [email protected] if you have any answers or solutions for me. lee

Sounds like they were DOS games. Try DOSBOX.
