How To Run Windows 95 games in Windows7

Windows 95 games are the classics which were the first in the computer gaming industry. Pacman, Sonic, Prince of Persia and many others. Unfortunately many of the games can be downloaded online but the modern win7 cannot run them. In order to run them on win7 a DOS emulator called DOSBOX can be used. Its a opensource software and can be downloaded for free here

Installation of DosBox is simple. After the installation download any win95 game. I downloaded Prince of Persia – after downloading I unzipped and placed it in E:/princepersia1

1. Step Run the DosBox program. It will launch a Command Prompt like window.

run dosbox

2. Step Now you need to mount the E:/princepersia1. Type mount e e:/princepersia1

mount drive

3. Step Change to E: drive. You will now be in E:/princepersia1. Simply type E:

change DIR to E:

4. Step Now you are inside the E:/princepersia1 type DIR to list the directory content.


5. Step Type PRINCE.EXE to launch the game.

run prince.exe

6. Step Enjoy the Classic :)
