Windows 7: Install 1996 app on Windows 7?

Install 1996 app on Windows 7?

So I've been searching around for a while and I can't find anything that works so far. I'm looking to install a really old video game called "Pool Champion" on my Windows 7 machine. Looking at the box it says Windows 95 or Windows's old.

Is it possible for me to install this onto my machine and if so how? I keep getting error messages with the standard user analyzer wizard.

Windows 7 32 bit

This may be your best bet:

DOSBox, an x86 emulator with DOS

The other possibility is running XPMode.

Alright, please walk me through the commands in that program. I can't get it to work properly. This is the CD as it appears in the drive.

If its a DOS-based game be aware that it will never run in Full Screen/might not work at all.
If that game is 16-bit it won't even work in any 64-bit version of Windows. Your best bet is to use XP Mode or a Virtual Machine

Alright, please walk me through the commands in that program. I can't get it to work properly.
DOSBox may not be able to fully emulate the game.

Virtual machine? Apologies, the majority of my computer usage are in work programs, excel, etc.
