I have old 16 bit games designed for MS-DOS 3.3 that I wanted to play. I
installed the games, but I receive error messages in Windows Vista (as well
as the Vista command prompt) saying that 16 bit MS-DOS cannot run in full
screen. Since this game does not have an uninstall option, I del *.* in the
folder that the game was created in and rd at the C:\> prompt. How do I make
games created before Windows 95 work in Vista? I run Vista Ultimate on a
brand new HP Pavilion system.
