Is it the game icon isn't launching the game or are you trying to launch the game in DOS? I mean you're probably better off launching the program from explorer. If it's not running set the compatability options back to 95/98 and it should be ok.

No problem, I usually play old pc games too so I know how much of a pain this can be to figure out.

I found the best solution for DOS is to burn it with fire

Why not use dosbox?

Because in windows vista/7/xp it's just not needed and you can set the compatability options back to 95/98 and it'll work fine? Especially for games.
