Windows 95 in Wine

Post by Mr_Sweets » Wed Jan 13, 2021 9:17 am

Hey everyone. New member. Trying to figure out how to successfully run Windows 95 in wine? I keep getting an Windows 95 only error when the game loads unfortunately. Is this even possible?

Run winecfg and you can set the Windows version used there:

Thanks jnewman. I tried that and The problem I have is Windows95 is not listed. Oldest selection available in Windows XP.

Is there an “older” version/engine of wine I should download that would have that Windows95 as an option? Any other thoughts?

You need to create a 32 bit wineprefix to be able to select Windows versions older than XP.
