## Running old carmageddon on windows 7 64-bit?

I downloaded a free version of the first carmageddon game and apparently it is only compatible with Windows XP service pack 2.

I am running windows 7 64-bit.

I've read that there is a trick to getting it to work.

Could anyone help me out?

I have DOSBOX but I don't know how to use it. Someone told me that DOSBOX was the key to getting carmageddon to run on my OS.

Could you perhaps walk me through this?

I have no idea how to use DOSBOX.

What I'm saying is that DOSBOX loaded when you ran the game program. It was packaged in. There was nothing to do.

You can buy this packaged option, but it will be $10 http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/carmageddon_max_pack  Quote by Greg Bernhardt What I'm saying is that DOSBOX loaded when you ran the game program.

Oh.

I installed a free downloadable version of carmageddon on my ipad. Although the graphics aren't that great and the controls are iffy. It would be nice if I could play it on my computer instead.

I do have an old laptop that runs windows XP. I might be able to play it on that.
