Installer is probably using older 16bit code (inside)

Sometimes older games will work on new PCs but the installer won’t. I’m guessing it is the installer here.

Two options
1) install Virtual Box on your Windows 10 pc. Then install WindowsXP to VirtualBox, then install the game. Kinda of roundabout but will work.

2) old games ported to newer operating systems?
