Someone gave me this game as a birthday present. Unfortunataly the installation does not even start under Windows 7, Compability Mode does not help with that. It is a Windows 95 game. How can I get it up and running again.
The installation for Frogger 2 is likely a 16-bit application, which are not supported on 64-bit versions of Windows.
Unfortunately, this only leaves you two options: Find if someone has written a 32-bit or 64-bit installer (this has happened for Grim Fandango and a few other games) or use a Virtual Machine.
Having said that, Virtual Box's Direct3D support was limited to DirectX 8 and 9. Unfortunately, this means that older titles do not work on it.
VMWare Player appears to support DX7 and earlier, but it has a somewhat intrusive signup process even though it's a free app, which involves them annoyingly sending you an email newsletter.
I finally figured this out. Compability Mode will not help even if one gets the game installed it still crashes. Windows 95 Virtual machines also seem problematic. Instead do this:
Now when starting the Virtual Machine
Everytime you want to play the game
It will run windowed but look as if it is running in full screen mode. Have fun! :D
