SIM ANT - How to run it on my Vista 64bit
So, I got Sim Ant on CD-ROM from Amazon through CD ACCESS.

I asked the seller a bunch of questions before hand, and they told me no one has ever complained and the game works. I get the box in the mail a few months ago, I need a 12 Mhz CPU to play it (LOL ) and it can run on Windows 3.1, IBM 286, and Mac System 6.0.2 or higher... it also says Windows 95 or LATER.

This is 16 bit software, I think.. so I was sort of worried it wouldn't run on my XP 32 bit windows I had a month ago, let alone my new Vista 64 bit install.... so, I try and run it and nothing, I copy the files to my HD and nothing... nothing seems to work! Do I have to get a Windows 95 emulator? Or Microsoft Virtual PC 2008? I am not sure how to run this game on my PC.

I tried to mess with the compatibility mode and nothing too. I also tried DOS BOOT and Bochs.
