Chessmaster for Win95 won't install with XP

  Honrose 15:50 13 Oct 2008

Hi there

I have an ancient chess game Chessmaster 5000 for Win95 - I've tried to install it on my XP PC but it "hangs" when it gets to Installing ODBC software. Is there a way round this, or does anyone know of a "patch"?

AND if i can't install it, can i delete the ODBC file it's stuck on my PC?

Thanks, any advice welcome
