Which Operational Art of War game is it? And which version of Windows are you running?

Okay, right-click on the game executable, and select 'Properties'. Go to the 'Compatibility' tab. Set everything up to match this image:



Hope it works! Let me know if you have any trouble.

It starts up, but it crashes immediately. Flashes a black screen and poof, the process is gone as well

Have you tried running it in DosBox? It might be a bit new for that, but it's worth a shot.

It's a Windows game so DOSBox doesn't help (unless you install Windows 9x in DOSBox).

I'd try using DxWnd:
