Marble Drop!

I have a game that someone given to me called Marble Drop. I try to play it but it says it can play on an 64 bit system As this game is VERY old 1997 it don't work on Windows 7. I'm not really sure on how I can install or play the game on windows 7 anybody have ideas they could share?
Thanks

You can try running it as XP compatible.

Or, you can install a virtual computer on your system and install the XP operating system there.

Will not run in compatible mode and have no clue on how to set up a Virtual Computer.

Windows XP Mode - Install and Setup

A game that old should run in that no problem.

True it it doesn't. It says the system does not run on 64 bit system with it being 32 bit.

?

XP Mode when run in a VM as shown in that tutorial is 32 bit. You're confusing XP Mode with Compatibility Mode,

Compatibility Mode

they are not the same thing at all.

I put the CD in the drive. Then it says to me.

That as far as I got. VM will not run this CD.

XP Mode doesn't use a XP disk to install. If you follow the tutorial there are 2 (now 3 with the update) downloads to install and use XP Mode.
