Platform specific disc onto XP

Is it possible to install a software disc that is platform specific onto XP Pro when the disc says Windows 95/98?. It's a SoftKey Clipart disc....Thanks in advance....

Thanks Vog. I will try it when I have sorted it out.. It takes me a while.

I don't think this is the answer for my problem. The 'Windows Application Compatibility Mode' apparantly is for programs that are not functioning as expected and asks to click on the link to the program. My problem is that the disk I offer will not install at all... You might tell me different.
Thanks for your effort Vog.

click here and follow the instructions for 'How to test programs in compatibility mode' - B. I want to use the program in the CD-ROM drive

I have tried to follow the instructions and have gone as far as I can but I still get 'This version of Video for Windows does not run on Windows NT. I don't know what it means but I think I will buy a more up to date version of this clip art and save all the bother. Thanks very much for your help Vog....

Since it's only clip-art, can you just not open the clips directly, without installing the accompanying prgram?

Sorry for the late reply DieSse but I was called for my tea.... I really don't know what you mean. The clip art is on a disc I bought a couple of years ago.
