Dunno if this applies, but...
Freehand 4 for Win has a bug that disallowed the program to run if you had
not filled out all 3 edits controls on the registration dialog. I did not
put in an Organization: entry.
The solution for that was to hold ctrl (or shift or something) while the
program was starting. This brought up the dialog which could then be filled
If they have a high degree of code portability there, maybe this is your
problem. Or maybe it just doesn't work with that build of Win95.

You bet, that's exactly what happens. MacroModel for Windows is
exactly that... as the manual states, Windows 3.1. Also works well
under later variants, such as WfW 3.11. But current beta builds of
Chicago do not support MacroModel 1.5. If you're actually a beta
site for Chicago, then please do send a beta report to Microsoft,
thanks -- they've been enabling backwards-compatibility for many
apps, and I'd like to see it with MacroModel, too.
(btw, I work with Macromedia, and can safely say that future
versions of the 3D tools will take advantage of operating systems
current at that time... MM1.5 predates Chicago, however, and is
spec'd for Windows 3.1.)
You can do it, but you need to create basically a "PIF". Make a shortcut
and edit the properties to run in a dos session and don't load emm386.
Himem is required.
