    I have a Toshiba Satellite L500 - 1UU with Windows 7 64 bit OS factory Installed... I want to install a 16 bit windows 95 program which works on XP and Vista 32bit versions. I tried the compatibility wizard in windows 7 in Win 95, 98, XP, Vista settings but i get the message " out of memory resources". Is there a way around? Will i get same message if i install 32 Bit windows 7? Theres no drivers for windows vista on the support pages well.. Where will i get the drivers for Vista if theres no way around but to change my OS?

    Hi,


    Maybe, you should install Vmware with Xp environment to run Win 95 programs or look for Windows 95 emulators in Google

    If you have Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate, you can use "XP Mode" which is a Virtual PC running Windows XP.

    www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx

    If you dont have Win7 Pro, you can use another Virtualization program such as VMWare

    You could also try DOSBox if that program runs via a DOS Prompt, or install XP alongside Win7 (Dual Boot).
