Play Microsoft Multimedia Beethoven on Windows 8 CDROM

Specs: Windows 7
Run Multimedia Beethoven on Windows 7. What does it take? There seems to be some kind of incompatibility between Windows 98 and Windows 7 and later. I don't know about Windows 5. Is there any way to run this outstanding Microsoft software product, or is it now a useless piece of history?

I agree with T-R-A in #1

"You could try running Windows 3.1 inside a virtual machine and possibly run the software from inside Win3.1 again using vmware"

that way you bypass all possible incompatabilities

I don't know anything about Multimedia Beethoven (though I'm curious
to find out), but I'm wondering if it is just the installer that is incompatible.
A 16-bit installer won't work on a 64-bit computer. If it is a *VERY* old
program, an 8-bit installer won't work on a 32-bit computer, either.

And I'm also curious: What did you mean when you said "Windows 5"?

I think Windows 5 = Windows 2000.

Have a look at the comments on Amazon. One of the commenters explains how to install on Vista using Win95 compatibility mode. It might work for Win8 too.

Yes win-5 was often used by some as name for win-2000. Oddly there were suggestions to that the initial version called win-5 was slightly different, to the long standing win-2000.

win-5/2000 had a different version of ntfs to that of nt3x/4x... and one had to be aware of that item when mixing content - accessing ntfs5 (as in win-5/2000) from nt3x/4x.

Somewhere I have a load of stuff all about it; as I was at one time seriously into nt4x/win-2000. But that was a long time ago.

And yup... like its namesake Beethoven is tres vieux, sehr alt, very old...
