Oh heeeeelllll yeeeeeeeahhhhhhhh! Chip's Challenge! This was one of the first old computer games I played. My now-dead grandma had it on her old computer...

Oh well. Thanks for the memories of better times.

ZIP is an archive format. You have to extract the contents with WinZip, WinRAR, WinAce, the Windows-built-in compressed folders utility or the like.

I'm fairly sure he knows how to run computer applications. He's probably having trouble because he has Vista. If I try it in DOSBox, it says it requires windows, and if I run it outside of DOSBox, it says it's not compatible. That's the only reason I was looking at the posts.

If that's the case, perhaps compatibility mode will work?

Dosbox runs dosgames directly, not Windows games.

But you can run W3.x in dosbox, and in dosbox/W3.x most of the W3.x games, and as Chip's challenge is a W3.x game, run the game that way in Vista. It runs fine.

Fully detailed unstructions how to install W3.x in dosbox:

And yes, it runs very good in dosbox 0.73.

Default Problems running on Windows 7

Is there a way to get around the not compatible error? I'm running Windows 7 and can't seem to get around it.
