Games on Vista

Ok so i've "Purchased" Resident Evil 1 - Directors Cut

When I try to play it on Vista it says "This would work if on Windows95"

Is there anyway I can get around this? Thanks.

P.S. I hope this is in the right section.:thumbsup:

Right click on its shortcut --> Properties --> Compatability tab --> Check the "Run in compatability mode" box --> Select Windows 95 --> Press apply --> Exit properties and start the game.
