I am not sure why people insist on leaving bad marks on a game that is a classic when they try to run it on their new PC. Its like trying to play a VCR tape in a toaster.... The catch is... you CAN get your Windows XP to play old games. Just go to Microsofts website and download the 45 day trial of their windows 95 emulation... it lets you play all your classic software. If you like it, the cost is very reasonable. And don't try using anything but bread in your toaster... even with a download, it usually ends in quite a mess.

Several reviews mention the difficulties of running the game in Windows XP, I encountered some difficulties myself...and here is how to change them.

Firstly, don't autoron the first CD when you first insert it, open up the CD, and right click the TLCTour.exe, in Properties, click to emulate running it in Windows 95. The game should now install and run fine. There are a few screen glitches, as it changes between the regular setting and the 256 colors of Windows 95, however, the game runs easily, without needing any downloads, from what I've seen.

On a side note, however, the game seems to rarely actually catch any fish.

In order to get it to install on Windows XP, you open "my computer" and right click on the cd and click "open". You'll then want to change the way it installs from "windows 95" to "windows 98/Windows ME". Then it will install and play just fine.

I first played Oregon Trail 3rd Edition years and years ago, and decided to buy it again. The game is fun, the graphics are different than any of the other Oregon Trail computer versions (not counting the iPad versions.) This one, in my opinion, is the most fun out of the Oregon Trail games. The music is livelier, the character interaction is more fun and realistic, hunting and fishing is a lot more fun - in short, I got the most out of this one. :) It should be noted that this is an older game, so you ought to make sure that it's compatible with your computer. I have Windows 7, and at first the game didn't install properly; my brother had to figure out how to install the CD's correctly before I could play them, and we're still having a bit of trouble, but that's more of a computer problem than an issue with the game.
I recommend this to any Oregon Trail fan; you won't be disappointed!

This was a great game, I played it back in 97-98. I purchased it for my computer recently only to find out that it does not work with a windows version newer than 98.

This version absolutely does not open with Windows XP. Might need 95, might be able to use 98.

I couldnt get this to work at first on my computer, HOWEVER after doing some internet research I found that you can run older games in Compatibility Mode. Worked like a charm for me and love playing this classic game! Choosing my team of over confident individuals to travel the Oregon Trail at a steady or grueling pace. Fishing and hunting, gathering berries. Watching as the cruel summer heat dehydrates my increasingly whiny team and farmer John is now ill with Malaria and his wife is dying of dysentry... but gosh darn it, we're going to make it to Oregon!

This is a 16 bit program. Unless you can virtualize a 16 or 32 bit Windows 98 PC on your own PC, it will not run. Order Oregon Trail, 5th edition,and follow the YouTube video on how to make "Oregon Trail 25th anniversary edition" work on a modern PC. I did, and it works on Windows 10. The same procedure should work for Windows 7, 8,and 8.1
