I own a CD of Star General with both, the DOS and the Win 95 versions.
With DosBox the DOS version runs perfectly well, but I can't run the Win 95 version under XP.
Can anybody help me?
Is there a difference between the DOS and the Win version?

I think you can only play over the internet multiplayer under the windows version. Also the largest size maps are only available under the windows version as well.
Hmm, I have Star General too, let me check.

edit: well I can't find the cd right now (I am lousy at having the cds where I can find them, but I did install and play the game a few weeks ago. I still have the game installed and from what I can see I have used the compatibility options on for the executable.
The options I have are Run for windows 98/me, disable visual themes, turn off advanced text services. Also remember to first install the patch since it fixes a few things that need to get fixed.
If you are still having problems just post them here.

Thanks! It works!
But I have no sound now!
For all the others: I had to put the setup.exe from the CD in compatibility mode, too to run the installation.
