The American Contract Bridge League(ACBL) has a
bridge game scoring program(ACBLScore) that is
available in two formats (Windows and DOS). DOS is
the most commonly used version but we have
experienced some problems that we can not explain.
One solution would be to install Windows 95 in place of
Windows XP. One club has a computer running
Windows 95 and it runs very smoothly. We are
wondering how to install Windows 95 on a computer
running Windows XP because Windows seems to
always reject installing an older version. Is there a
simple way to do it or must the computer be sent to a
windows maintenance store.

Pick up an old, working Win98Second Edition Machine. Win98SE is by far better than 95 as far as Programs, Windows Software and Hardware.

You should be able to acquire a fairly good Win98 computer for around $50.00, if not free.
I don't know about bridge Clubs :-) but a member could have one laying around collecting dust..

There is nothing to learn from someone who already agrees with you.

You'd need to format the drive in the XP computer and then do the install. But as Bob mentioned you're probably better off finding an older computer. You don't describe your XP computer, and although you can install 95 or 98 on it, it may be difficult to find drivers to set up the hardware if it's a somewhat new PC.

Or if all else fails, you could run the appropriate version under a Virtual Machine running Win95 or DOS.

Look at the links below for two methods to run your program.

I wouldn't recommend installing Win95 on a newer computer.
