Cannot Open Older Downloadable Program on Win2000 OS
Posted on 2003-02-21
I am unable to open a 5-year old legitimate game-type free computer program downloadable from the TVLand website. It worked on my Windows 95, and I think Windows 98, as well. It is a simple but amusing Mister Ed the Psychic Ask the Soothsaying Horse game. The program, still available today in both Windows and Mac, downloads but the Win files won't open from the Zip-It self-extracter on my 2000 system. (Another friend today also had the same dead-end.)
If this a 16 vs. 32-bit problem, is there any easy way to get it to work? No one is supporting the page, as it is very outdated (years) and probably forgotten. I have no idea of the author and I am unable to read the url; although I can insert it into email via the aol "favorite places" heart icon. Don't see the url in temporary internet files, either.
This is a very charming little game that I would very much like to have back for its nostalgia value. Thank you in advance for any help with this issue.
