Question about Sega Sonic & Knuckles Collection for Windows
I was digging through my house when I came upon "sonic & knuckles collection" for windows 95 + 98. When I put it in my XP, it worked fine until I ran the installer, because then it froze up and said that the "16 bit oporation had timed out, the win 16 subsystem may be unstable" I have looked all over and I can't find any thing. Do you have any idea what this means?
Some incompatibility. Try right clicking on the installer EXE and changing options in the "compatibility mode" tab.
Try to run as Windows 95, Windows 98, disable visual themes, advanced text support, run it on 256 colors... try everything - it could work. But since it's something made for an OS developed more than 10 years ago, it will be hard to get it working.
If it still won't install, then your best hope is to install a Virtual Machine software (like VMWare) and install a copy of Windows 9X on it, so you can run the game virtualized.
