How To Play 11th Hour With Windows 7

Did you just buy the game only to realize that it’s compatible with Windows 95? Well, don’t worry!

There are some tricks that you could use to install this old 11th Hour version in your Windows 7 PC.

1. Windows Compatibility (this usually works for most old games)

  1. Go to your Desktop
  2. Right click on the Game Icon
  3. Then go to “Properties” (the game properties should appear)
  4. Proceed to the “Compatibility” tab
  5. Then, check the unchecked box saying “run this program in compatibility mode for:”
  6. After that, go to the drop down box located at the bottom of the box you checked
  7. And then select “Windows 95″
  8. Finally, press apply
  9. Try running the game again as administrator


If the game still doesn’t run, try using the other compatibility options in the drop down box.

2. Hardware Acceleration Adjustment

  1. Open -> Start Menu
  2. Go to the “Control Panel”
  3. Click the “Appearance and Personalize” option
  4. Click the “Display” option
  5. Go to the “Advanced Settings” (bottom-right part)
  6. Go to the “Troubleshoot” tab
  7. Click the “Change Settings” button (A message will appear that would ask you to run it as an administrator, press ok, and the Display Adapter Troubleshooter should appear)
  8. Adjust the hardware acceleration settings as desired (you can move it all the way to the left if you want)
  9. Click the “Ok/Apply” button.
  10. And, finally, restart your computer
  11. Try running the game again.


There’s still a chance that these tricks might not work, the 11th Hour game was generally designed for PC running Win 95 and MS-DOS 5.0.

However, there are three other ways to run the game on a computer with Windows 7...

3. Steam Download
I think this might be the simplest way to get and play the game. You’ll just need to:

  1. Register for a Steam account
  2. Buy the steam version of the 11th Hour and run it using Steam

You can register and get the game here:

4. Buy The Windows 7 version of the game
You could also buy the game from these website:
- hour
- B008ELNDL0
After getting the game, the next step would be to just install it directly into your computer.

5. Download and Install a crack version of the game
I think this might be the hardest way to get and play this game. You’ll have to get it from a torrent website and hope that it’s working (it is possible that these copies might work, but there’s no guarantee).

I hope this helps.


So... what do you think? Please leave me a comment.


  • Vale: Would this game still work on computers with the newest version of windows or is there an updated version of this game?
  • Lloyd: It might still work for a computer running Windows 8, but I wasn’t able to find a version of this game that is specifically created for the newest windows.
  • Vale: That’s a shame, it seems like it would be a fun game!
  • Lloyd: Yeah, it’s one of the best old games.
  • Vale: :) Maybe they’ll come up with an updated version!
  • Lloyd: I really hope so :D
