Gaming questions for windows 7

Hello everybody here. First I must say this. I don't have Windows 7 yet. I have it soon when I get new machine as present. I registered here because I need some info about compatibility issues in Windows 7.

Question 1:
At your list these game work in 62bit only: Battlefield Series, C&C Series. Do they work in 32bit also?

Question 2:
How about 16bit programs in 64bit OS. Any problems here.

Like:
Syndicate(OLD PC game)
Wolfenstein 3D(OLD DOS Version)
DOOM 1 and 2(DOS ALSO)
S.W.O.T.L (DOS ALSO)
Axis and Allies(Win 95)
Duke Nukem 3D
Destroyer command (WIN 95)
Deer hunter 4(WIN 95)
Unreal(WIN 95)
Trophy Hunter 2003(WIN 95)
Steel Panthers :World at War
Delta Force Series
Steel Beasts(WIN 95)

List goes on and on. Any luck with these programs on 64bit?

There are some useful FREE emulators. Like VDMSound, Abandonloader and others. Maybe these will help me here.

You will not be able run most 16bit programs natively. The only way you can be able to run them is through a Virtual PC (ie. Virtual XP Mode). Windows XP Mode - Install and Setup

Question:

I don't know anything with those emulators. But Running those games with DOSBOX or Virtual XP Mode will likely work. Hopefully, someone will reply to you sooner if anyone does know about those emulators.

I have problems: Now I have new machine but it has Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit os and Windows Virtual PC requires Windows 7 Professional OS. Is there emulators that I can use in Windows 7 Home Premium?

Well, as Influx said, DOSBOX is probably your best option for running pre-XP games on 7. The only game on that list that works for me fine on 7 Home Premium is Unreal Tournament. If any of the games you like run on older Macintosh software, I suggest Basilisk II or Sheepshaver (I can give you some links once I get off a phone and on a computer.)

Sheepshaver is Mac software. No go. I use PC software only.

Sheepshaver also requires Mac OS to function. No go again.

I cannot believe that people still sit around playing all of these old games.

WHY NOT PLAY THEM??? They are good games. Enough said.

Question:
Can VDMSound emulatonr run on windows 7?

When I start installing games I will report here and tell what happens. Trial and error is best way to try this.
