I can install the games using the sierra setup utility, and that puts the games on my start-programs bar. But when I run them they don’t do anything. Usually a black window will open and then minimize and close. I know about the compatibility settings, but even switching qg4 to win98 and 256 colors won’t allow the game to run.

When I go to the Sierra folder on my c drive I can’t find any executables to drag into dosbox. I only see icons, screensavers, hep files, and something called sierraw which does nothing. I don’t know how to get any more specific really, I was just wondering what steps other people had to go through to run the games.
