Help reviving cubasis on Windows 7

Hi
A friend would like my assistance in reviving Cubasis music software for him.
It is a digital audio workstation from 1999, intended for windows 98.
He likes a certain feature relating to using a mouse moving over a timeline to trigger percussion/instruments
I know it was intended for an Atari ST computer, but it evolved to PC as well
but can anything be done for him today on a modern windows 7?
He gets the following error message, attached,  once installed and trying to open
We have the entire CD-ROM content

Thanks

He said those are all good, but all end up pointing to a purchase of a modern equivalent.
He is interested in running the 1999 version of Cubasis, somehow.
Thanks

It is foolish to run old, no longer supported software. Besides it not running properly on current OS's, you risk compromising your system because that old software will have accumulated security holes that haven't been patched with security updates etc.

You may want to run it under a virtualization solution on Windows 98 but the results will be mixed.
If your friend is using midi interfaces then the virtualization is not an option.
If he uses only a sound card then you may have -a kind- of success.

To be honest I wouldn't try to make it work, it is very old and highly risky to invest time when the odds of making it work are low.

Great and thanks for accepting our answers! Let us know what he decided (the new versions are not so expensive if they are for lite use as I saw in their site).
