Open Dictionary CD files for Win 95 in Win 7

November 30, 2011 at 00:50:06
Specs: Windows 7
I have an old CD dictionary (Windows 3.x and/or 95) which I can not open with Windows 7. Is there any way to do this (directly or indirectly) since I need this dictionary?

Probably you do need the application associated to the CD that anyway may get problems to run under Win 7 if so old as designed for Win 9X or Win 3X (in this case a 16 bit program).

If Win 7 is 64-bit and the old dictionary software is 16-bit, you cannot run it directly or in compatibility mode. In this case, you may try using a virtualization program.

If your Win 7 is pro version, it comes with its own virtualization program and xp mode.

Please see this document for further information.

What happens when you try to open the file that starts it?

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
