Cool Hello friends!

I'm new here, so hello.

I can't play either LBA because of this Windows 7 64 bit laptop, and all the hassle of installing, but I am trying to get LBAnet to work.
But all you others should try it out. It's great. (I think).

Welcome!
Have you tried DosBox to get LBA to work? We have a guide for that on the forums.

Yup, I think so. I think I've tried everything, really. I even got my dad to try and install it. No luck. This computer rejects most of the games I try to install on it.

Try to run it with XP compatible mode. You can do it in the properties of LbaWin.exe

Is virtual machine such a good idea ? It splits the hard drive in two parts, each one will an antivirus...

First, virtual machines are usually stored in separate files. They almost do not interact with real filesystem.
Second, DosBox would be enough to run both LBA games.

Anyway, welcome, Karla!
