DX-Ball Backward Compatibility Problem!

Anyone having problem with the classic DX-Ball game? I've also tried to play it in Windows XP mode but every time I start the game, screen goes blank with black. Pressing Escape returns to windows.

You cannot use the win xp compatibility mode with this because is not compatible with Windows xp.

Is compatible only with Windows 95/98/NT 4.0

Try to run the game in Windows 98/Windows Me or Windows 95 compatibility mode.

Try the above steps and post back.
