    Hi. I've got Windows XP on my computer, and I want to run an old favorite game of mine, "Stay Tooned!" The game was made in 1996 and as such isn't configured to run on XP (I think it was made to work with Windows 3.1 and 95). I've already tried running the compatability wizard, with no luck. When I try to run the program, I get the following message: "Script Error: Handler not defined #fileIO".

    Is there any way I can get this program to work?

    Thanks for any and all of your help!

    If it's for Windows 3.x then no. 9x however maybe. DOSBOX is an emulator for XP to run old DOS games that doesn't work with XPs compatibility mode.

    I have the disc in front of me, and it says that there is both a 3.1 and a 95 version on it. It's not a DOS game, though, so how would a DOS emulator help...?

    I assume something that old would be as there were alot of games that was.

    Prehaps it's too old to run on Windows XP. If that's the case then the only way you would be able to play it is to have Windows 95 on your machine, but that's a complicated issue all together. I'm sorry that I can't assist you further.
