Default Little help with a classic game

Hi,

I was looking to install Rattler Race, it's from Windows Entertainment Package 2 (Microsoft Entertainment Pack - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). Many people might remember it.

I am running windows vista and have found the .exe file for it (ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/deskapps/games/public/AAS/) and it says it cannot find vbrun100.dll which I've downloaded from (Download Vbrun100.dll | PCWorld) but it still doesn't see it. I know the game is for a much older version of windows but it seems other people have been able to run it.

Any help/tips would be great.

Right click on the installer and select compatibility mode. Select the version OS it was written to and check that one.

And now I'm going to find a copy of this so I can play Rodents Revenge.
