Hi there I just got this from another post (Kudos to RobMesander) Apparently the Full Screen error I was getting can be fixed by runnind command.com rather than CMD (which is what I was using) in XP Mode Try it out!

Old game, 64-bit compatibility issue
Hey there. I'm trying to install this old game that ran on Windows 95/98. The problem is that it's incompatible with my 64-bit Windows 7, so despite running the installer using Compatibility Mode, it still doesn't work. Is there any way to get it to work?

does game compatibility depend mostly on hardware?
i see so many people having problems with games that i'm not experiencing, so i'm wondering if compatibility is more hardware based? gta iv, left 4 dead, unreal tournament 3... i just install them and they play. no compatibility mode or anything. but others struggle to get them to work. i guess...
