I recently played "The Dig" (which is a 95 game) on an older computer which ran Windows XP, however it did not work on a newer computer which ran XP.
So basically, what you want to do is select it to run as a 95 game...or something like that.
When you put the disc into your computer, go to "My Computer" and find the game file. From there right click the proper file and select "properties" then "compatibility". Then your last step is to select the box and run it as a 95 game.
