You dont say if you are 64bit or as I suspect 32. I doubt you will be able to run it. You might try running it in compatibility mode. Right click the installer>properties>compatibility>Choose OS.

Good Luck

Then I think that this is a game that you won't be able to use in Windows 7.

certain games might not compatible with windows 7 and certain built only for windows 7 like Just Cause 2. in this case you should try compatibility mode

Why not try a Windows 95 virtual machine, so that you can run the game in it?

This video explains a bit more - YouTube - How to use Windows 95 in Virtual PC. VHD included!

Hope that helps,
