Run it in compatibility mode

Right mouse / properties on the exe file and change it to 95/98 under the compatibility tab

Well if it has to run in DOS, you'll have to run it in DOS somehow

Well if it has to run in DOS you'll have to copy whatever to a bootable floppy or usb flash drive. And boot from it

If the software is DOS based, DOSBox (http://sourceforge.net/project/downloading.php?groupname=dosbox&filename=DOSBox0.72-win32-installer.exe&use_mirror=transact) should work well...

Whoops, I misread the question. Thought he meant he couldn't figure out how to get it.

Maybe these links will help.

If the game is actually DOS based. :p

That 2nd link seems to be what you want, but it's down for me.
