Default Dark Seed II, won't run on win7

Hello everyone.

Before I start explaining my problem, I'd like to adress that my technical skills are quite lacking, especially when dealing with older games. Therefore I'd ask for some more "detailed" explenation of how to fix my problem (if there is).

Anyway, I recently found out that on Abandonia you can download Dark Seed II and so I did. When I finished downloading I extracted the files from the zip in a Darkseed folder. In there I pressed directly the INSTALL .bat but a message popped up saying that the version of this file (INSTALL apparently runs the SETUP1.exe from the SS1 folder, so I'm reffering to SETUP1) is not compatible with my Windows version. I happen to have Windows 7 Ultimate.

Now, I tried to run the SETUP1 with all the compatibilities (from Win95 to WinVista), running it with 256 colors and as admin. Also I tried running it with DosBox, but It told me that I needed Windows to run it. Searching for previous threads with similar solution failed too.

Thank you in advance for any help!

Hi and welcome.

Under DOSBox you will need to have an installation of Windows 3.1 inside it, to be able to run Dark Seed II.

I recently bought Dark Seed II (new) and under XP I had to alter the screen preferences from the desktop, as from the icon didn't seem to work.
