     "MS-DOS 7 is a computer operating system which has never been 
released separately by its creator Microsoft,[1] but which corresponds 
to the basic (real mode) of the Windows 9x family of operating systems. 
Windows 95 reports to be MS-DOS 7.0, while Windows 98 and Windows 98SE 
report as 7.1."

Does the software require Windows 95 or newer, or will it only run on 
Windows 95, 98, and 98SE?
