Simcity 2000 won't install. 16-bit installer. My attempts at a manual install failed as the game will not run if not registered in the OS.

Obviously. But it's nearly impossible to tell if an installer is 16-bit until it's run. Even if a game is 32-bit it may still have a 16-bit installer. And the game's age isn't a sign, either. I was able to install Oni(1998) and Shadow Man(1999) yet can't install Max Payne (2001).

I can't seem to install Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six, nor Rainbow Six - Mission Pack : Eagle Watch. Is this a known issue with Windows 7 and is there a workaround? ... Please HELP!!!!

Sonic Riders must be run in compatibility mode for Windows XP. I went with XP SP2 compatibility. Trying to run without compatibility mode set gives you a black screen.

Now, you may also notice that there is no title screen music in this game. That's not an error. I checked my Gamecube copy of the game and it also lacks music at the title screen. Go figure. And for whatever reason, Sega didn't add an "exit game" option to the main menu, so you must either run in windowed mode or use Alt + F4 to exit the game. Poor, poor move, Sega.

Now THAT would be a compatibility miracle
GZDoom - News

GZDoom will play Doom, Doom II, Heretic, Hexen and Strife on modern PCs with numerous upgrades, such as high resolutions, better lighting effects, mouselook and other additions.

True, you could play vanilla Doom through DOSbox, but why would you want to with these enhancements? If mouselook and jumping are that bad, disable them.
Hey, thanks for this
I appreciate it
