DOS Gin Game (Ginking)

Posted: 10-16-2008, 08:06 PM

I have a 15-year-old DOS gin game called Ginking. I lost the instal
floppy disk years ago but have been able to copy the game from compute
to computer, until I get Vista. I copied the game to Vista but when
tried to open it I got this message:

16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem

This system does not support fullscreen mode. Choose ‘Close’ t
terminate the application.

Close/Ignore

When I close it, it closes. When I Ignore it I get the followin
message:

NTVDM.EXE has stopped working

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows wil
close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

I really miss this game. I was hoping to have it by Christmas becaus
on Christmas Day the King of Spades changes to Santa Clause all day
The original game also had Backgammon, Cribbage, and Checkers.

I'd appreciate any help I can get. Thanks
