So i am on a bit of a retro kick and want to buy some of those old PC sims I either had or wanted, the big box, chunky manual versions, so I am willing to buy the games but only if i know they work so I am getting ISOs from abandonware sites to try before i buy.
Now, Janes Fighters Anthology, Longbow 2 and F-15 installed fine but the later games, F/A-18 and USAF wont even launch the setup.exe, a bit of research seems to indicate I am out of luck if I cant use an earlier version of windows. Setting compatability didnt help. seems late 90's and early 00's windows games are the worst to get running.
If anyone knows how to get this working on recent versions of Win10 or has an installed game folder I can borrow please let me know. I did look in the FAQ above but the link for the install/reinstall guide is broken for me
