    I have a disc I need to watch for work. It says it needs windows 95 to run it. It is old interactive courseware. I have flip4mac installed. Is there anything I can download to make this thing run.

    I also have windows Vista and 7RC but the disc wont recognize when i insert it.

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    So if it is interactive, it is a program right? So it won't work on Mac OS X at all. I know XP can run programs in compatibility mode, but if it's not showing up that might not help. Maybe copy the disc contents in Mac OS X onto a USB and see if it can read it in Windows then?

    If you need to watch it for work, does it not seem reasonable to get your work to provide you a Windows 95 facility for watching it?
