It couldn’t hurt to try.

Sorry, I accidentally put that through without finishing. I know you can right click on the program and change the compatibility mode, so for for Windows 98 or whatever those games are you can select properties when you right click and change it in the compatibility tab. If it freezes or does not load properly, try going to ‘Input Settings’ and click in the text box ‘Turn off advanced text services for this program’. My windows 95 games will not play on XP even after trying both of these things, but I haven’t dealt with Vista so it could be different.
