Doom and Quake CDs on Win7 64bit

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just bought boxed copies of Doom and Quake at a car boot for a fiver

I thought that I'd install and play a few hours. It seems that I cannot install them under 64bit, compatibility mode doesn't work either.

Can anyone help me run them from actual retail CDs through DOSBox?

Should I just install them on Windows XP Mode?

You could install them on xp mode. Should work no problem, only problem is that it runs in 16bit color.

You could try this guide too, it worked for some applications at work.
