The Oracle virtual box suggested by neilhoward seems really cool,
www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
but you'll have to get an XP install cd.
If you have that, we'll take it further.
If not, then lets go with Dosbox.

Dosbox.
1. Install Dosbox (It's currently 0.74).
www.dosbox.com/download.php?main=1

2. Install it (Keep default settings or take note of any change in install directory path)

3. Get gible's stars dump (4.92mb, last in the game files list).
http://wiki.starsautohost.org/wiki/Downloads

4. Unzip to C:\DOSBoxC
(we'll put it in another directory in the end. This just simplifies explaining things)

5. Create a shortcut and enter :
"C:\Program Files\DOSBox-0.74\DOSBox.exe" -conf "C:\DOSBoxC\dosbox.conf"
(note that you have to change .72 to .74 in the path. Dosbox's older version is referred to in the readme file.)

6. Double click this shortcut.

7. Enter your serial number in the stars box that opens up.
You are good to go.

You can now change the C:\Dosboxc to any other path.. just make the change in the shortcut as well.
You might need to mess around with the settings as the mouse cursor seemed too fast for me.

Thanks for going through the trouble to figure out how to run stars on 64 bit windows 7 for me. I know the basics of the computer but dont know how to do stuff like this. Maybe tonight or tomorrow we can get me all set up.



I know my minefields.. but I'm a chaff sweeper.
I used to curse when I got stuck in traffic... till I realised I AM traffic.
