Unable to load W95/W98 programmes on XP.

I converted to XP Pro a short time ago, and I seem to be having problems installing my 'older software'. Programmes that I had no bother installing on W95/W98se/WME, now seem to refuse [in some cases] to install onto XP. What can I do to correct this problem.

Jester - Don't seem to get any messages, they just do not install. Tried Add/Remove--Run etc.

The type of programme would be the 1998 "Titanic, An Interactive Journey" by Europress. With usual System Requirements: PC 486 DX 33 or higher,8Mb Ram, Double-Speed CD-Rom,256 colours,Windows 3.1 or Windows 95/98.

Looks like a car boot sale job, or return to WME/W98. I have a full slave H/D with WME, but wanted to use XP.Microsoft XP doesn't seem to be doing me any favours.Since I installed it, I have had numerious problems with older equipment, and some new devices as well.

Tried the compatibility way, only to have warning message 'InstallShield Engine EXE has encounted a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience'.

Thanks folks, will green tick it now.
