Dosbox can probably run most of the games you listed just fine.

There's "Windows 7 emulators" already. It's called almost any recent VM software.
I personally prefer QEMU for Windows 98, though with some effort (MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF TRIAL AND ERROR ON YOUR OWN) you can boot Windows 95 in DOSBox. It's not stable, and dos games will NOT run in it, but there is the benefit of a VM with good FM emulation and input.

All those games you listed are DOS games not Win95 games. Play them in DOSBox. Play Duke3D Shareware with eDuke32!

For Win95 programs and games, though, there's always Wine.

I don't think he needed an emulator to run the games, but to run his bootdisk to GET the games. Not sure but thats what I gathered.

If you want to run Win 95 (Awww! I remember Win 3.11!) and you don't want to dick around with emulators and VM ware, then just grab a $20 PII from your local thift store/garage sale. It will probably involve less messing around, partitioning your live system. You also duck out on the cost of all those DVDS to back up your working system in case something goes very drasticly wrong (which, if you don't know what you are doing with disk partitioning software, is a near certainty :) :o :o )

Up, until the NT-generation(XP/2000->) Windows's were heavily DOS-based. Most recent ones don't have any of that DOS heritage left, hence they don't run DOS programs / games properly. There isn't a need for that, and those that have a need - have DOSbox :)

He could just mount the disk in DOSBox and copy the games that way. All the games are DOS so it should work fine.

All those games are available on the internet anyway (ignoring legality of course).
