    Problem with old game

    I recently received a copy of Dust: A Tale of the Wired West and when I put the game in, hit install, and then a window pops up and says "Setup is preparing the InstallShield Wizard which will guide you through the setup process. Please Wait" during this process, I get an error message that says "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel."

    The game is from Windows95, but I hoped it could run anyway. Help?

    Your best bet would be to run it in Compatibility Mode
    Under Win95.

    I too have this problem.

    I really really really want to play this game.

    Any ideas?

    The compatibility thing didn't work
