Microsoft Golf 3.0 Compatibility With Windows 7 on a 64 bit machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Has anybody discovered a way to run the MS Golf 3.0 game on a 64 bit machine?  I've tried the compatibility feature but it still won't run.

  • Thank you, Shrikant for the suggestion.  I was actually able to finally make the game work by installing a virtual machine and loading XP onto it, then installing the game on the virtual machine.  The owner of the game and machine was still very uncomfortable with Windows 7 as his main operating system and ultimately donated the 64 bit machine to the office and went out and bought a new 32 bit system.
