If you buy this not knowing it wont with XP as I did this is how you may be able to get it to run. Go to the setup.exe, right click, properties, compatibility, then check run this program in compatibility mode for and choose Windows 95.
I bought this only to find out, per the package, that it only runs on Windows 3.1 or 95. Didn't run on my XP. Tried it on an old machine with 95, still didn't run. Waste of money.
I had the same experience as the others. I purchased it for my kids and discovered after I bought it that it does not run on the newer versions of windows. Very frustrating!
