      what problems are you running into?

      I haven’t tried these games, but as far as I know you should be able to run the DOS versions. Try using the DOS box within Windows, as well as rebooting to DOS. (But if you reboot to DOS, there may be some drivers you need to install to get the games working.)

      Tell us what exactly the problem is, and maybe someone can help you get these working.

      You need a file called mouse.com in your DOS directory. You may already have that file on your computer, take a look. If you do, you need to edit your autoexec file (use Notepad) — add this line:

      C:\DOS\MOUSE.COM

      I think (but am not sure) you could also get it working by typing ‘run MOUSE.COM’ from a DOS prompt.

      If you don’t already have mouse.com in your DOS file, you can find it online, or I can upload it here later (I had to do this on my own computer).
