    Can't run original Tetris on Win10


    It ran fine in WinXP (can't remember whether I used any compatibility mode), now I can't run it even in compatibility mode (Win95 nor XP). I tried compatibility troubleshooter, no joy. Can anything be done?

    Was that a 32-bit XP? and is your Windows 10 64-bit? If so, I'm afraid your Tetris is most likely 16-bit app. A 32-bit OS can run 16/32 bit apps, but a 64-bit OS can only run 32/64 bit apps.

    A virtual machine or DosBox may be the only way...

    Yup, the XP was 32 bit. Darn it!

    Try the Tetris from Crystal Office works well in Win10 and looks pretty much like the original as far as I can remember. I use it when having a break from the Simulator I'm creating stuff for and am suffering brain ache ;o)

    The best Tetris game ever!
