“ODS Carnival Math” is a 1997* children’s game which apparently made by Ohio Distinctive Software (http://www.ohio-distinctive.com/).

CARNIVAL.ISO – MD5: D01791402844F488766372891E11442F

After following these steps I successfully ran this program in a virtualization of Windows 95, but I suggest that you use Windows 98 since it might have 256 or more colors:

The photos are from my scanner’s flatbed. The dot (.) represents the current directory, which contains “CARNIVAL.ISO” in this case:
“scan0001.jpg” was in “.2019-11 (Nov)”, so I renamed it to “.2019-11 (Nov)-scan0001.jpg”.
“scan0002.jpg” was in “.2019-11 (Nov)”, so I renamed it to “.2019-11 (Nov)-scan0002.jpg”.

Error I got when I tried to run this “ISO > program” on Windows 7 with various compatibility modes and with 32-bit mode enabled in “Internet Information Services > Application Pools > DefaultAppPool > Advanced Settings… > …” (since I tried to run the mounted ISO on a 64-bit computer):
“[Window Title]

The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you’re running. Check your computer’s system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.


(‘[“SETUP.EXE” or “CARNIVAL.EXE”]’ is non-literal text which I wrote.) It didn’t work with a 64-bit Windows 7 OS. It might work with a Windows 7 32-bit OS + compatibility mode.
