Hello,

So I downloaded a educational videogame that is really nostalgic to me on the internet, and the files I did got from the download are these: https://ibb.co/m8HRt0q
When opening the 'HoofdMenu' application (https://ibb.co/bXWWRSn) it gives me this error log: https://ibb.co/0QSpWzy (g_groep and g_leerling not available.)
I translated the text in the .ini file for everyone here, I deleted the text after that and saved it again so nothing was changed. https://ibb.co/VLsqKyH
If you need other screenshots for helping or something I can give them.

Sorry for my bad English by the way.
I hope someone can help me to give me some nostalgic feelings :)
many thanks :)

If its an old old game you can try runing it with Scummvm or Dosbox.
Scummvm is easier to use but you need to see online if your game is on the list .
If not , Dosbox .

You can try to run it in compatibility mode , by right clicking the main app, properties, and check stuff on the compatibility tab, if not ,you need to run it with an emulator( check downloads online) like those i've written.
What year is it? I also play old point and click 90's adventure games with dosbox :)

it gives an error message that its missing files, i already tried compatibility mode.
 
This looks like an old Flash game so you will need to run an old version of explorer and install all the old versions of flashplayer java and whatever we used back then.
The error you get is from AmbraSoft (familiepakket 1011) but newer windows do not have the menu directory in the users folder anymore,again you will need windows XP or possibly even windows 98.
Find out from when the software is and run a virtual machine.

Will that fix the missing files?
