Alright, I have looked at all the ways I think to install this but nothing is happening. I download MagicISO and when I set the properties to Windows 95 it gives me this error message when I click on install.

E:/Install.exe is not a valid Win32 application.


Is there anyway I can fix this? I love this game. Thanks.

Hi Zavman,
Do you have a 64-bit version of Windows? As far as I know it's not possible to install 16-bit programs on 64-bit systems.

So I can't play this?

As far as I know, unfortunately not; technology has moved on I'm afraid.

Perhaps you can find an emulator or something?

I know C&C's official site had the game for download for XP,Vista its Free. Here are some download links : http://www.cheatchannel.com/cc.htm and in case that doesn't work here is a another one : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=542205
The only thing though is that you can't play it on the network or Internet at least I think so.

If this doesn't work you might have to get C&C the first decade.

Yes XIth, if you read the rest of the thread you'll see that we have step-by-step guides to downloading and installing the free version of C&C, plus guides to enable network and internet play ;)

Ehh... C&C is 32 bit. It's just the installer. And with this tool you can unpack the SETUP.Z archive from the CD and have a fully working C&C95 without needing the installer:

Even includes a GUI ;)
