Default Windows 8!

I've just downloaded Ace Ventura from the ISO section. However I can't get it to install under Windows 8 64-bit. Natively running setup from the Image (mounted with Windows as 8 allows you to mount isos) and in compat mode for Windows 95 and running as Admin it says its not designed for this version of Windows. (Even running ACE displays the same message.)

Running it in D-Fend Reloaded as a Windows profile it says that setup is a MS-DOS program and should be ran in DOSBox.

However running setup in DOSBox and mounting the image under it the screen goes blank then I get returned to Windows saying that DOSBox is having a few issues running. I'm running the latest version of DB.

I'm at a loss on how to get this running...anyone? Also I put it here as no doubt Ace will not be the only game to have this problem.

(Edit: Claw also complains about a 64 bit system and wount run even after setting the compat settings.)
