Old Game Instillation (0xc0000142) error

Hey just registered,

I am trying to install a game that should be used on Windows 95. I have tried to change the compatibility to 1995, but to no avail.

I keep getting the error: "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application."

I have windows 7 64bit

Any idea what to do?

Thanks

Hi,

Windows 95 was a long time ago.........perhaps compatibility mode will not work. What is the name of the game?
