    Very little chance for Windows 95 games to run under Windows 7.

    The programs are too old and the option COMPATIBILITY MODE will not be applied on such old programs.

    Every Windows has built in programs to access programs written for older windows os, but that program has a limit and will not cover Windows 95 under any consideration.

    So forget about those older games.

    Hi..

    As windows 95 games are the older one's .

    you might face the compatibility issue in playing them in windows 7


    Some of the games whose graphics , resolution is good can be played

    such as Road Rash , Mortal Combat and some other .


    Thank you..

    Hi, Friend

    First of all check Whether the games installing or not.......most of the times it does not support the Windows 95 Games..... because Windows 7 is the Advance version than Windows 95....... and it must shows the compatible error

    and if the game installed properly without any issue

    then simply right click on Shortcut of the game and choose Properties

    then tap on Compatibility ....tab....and choose Run this program in compatibility mode for option

    then choose windows 95 in it ....and click the OK button

    after that play the game

    And if you are unable to install the Games ..with the Normal procedure ...try to follow these
    First go to the location of Game and right click on Setup file
    and choose TROUBLESHOOT COMPATIBILITY .....
    then click on Try RECOMMENDED SETTINGS option
    NOW click the START PROGRAM button.........and follow the instructions
    after the completion of installation ...... click NEXT button from the program compatibility window
    after choose SAVE THESE settings for this program option ....and then close the Trouble shooter

    and again if not helps....simply download the latest version of that respective games and install them

    ALL THE BEST!!!!!!!!!

    Hello,

    Not many games of Windows 95 is compatible to Windows 7. You can use them on windows XP.
    You have to find Windows7 Compatible games otherwise there is much you can do. You can use
    torrentz to findout any such games at any time.

    Bye,

    Its very difficult that a windows 95 game run in windows 7 .

    The main problem here is compatiblity issue of a 16-bit game with 64-bit operating system
    I suggest you that you should first intall a 32-Bit windows 7 on your PC that can most Probably run your windows 95 game

    Install the game:
    1. Right click the installer.
    2. Click on "properties" then Properties window appear
    3. Select "compatibility" tab.
    4. Select "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
    5. Select "Windows 95" and click ok
    6. Now again Right on installer and Click on "Run as Administrator"

    To run the game:
    1. Right click on game shortcut on Desktop
    2. Click on "properties" in pop-up menu and properties windows appear
    3. Select "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
    4. Select "Windows 95" and click ok
    5. Now again Right on installer and Click on "Run as Administrator"


    IF IT DOES NOT WORK

    * Download Virtual PC from Link below

    * Install the Windows XP in Virtual PC
    * Use the Previous Install and Run steps to operate windows 95 games in windows xp It will Definately work

    Now a days , most of the people use Windows 7 and Windows 8 , although very few use Windows XP as well.

    Most of the software , are compatible for these versions only. So you might feel difficult to use Windows 95 software / program because there will be
    compatibility issues.

    Even if you want to use , then you can install virtual windows 95 in windows 7 , if you can find VM Ware for Windows 7.
