Thats wierd that you can't get them to work in compat mode...
Thats basically what compat mode is for, running 16 and 32-bit apps on a 64-bit version of Win.... Have you consulted your Win. doc.'s for help on the compat. part?

you may need to make a new autoexec.bat file and a new config file for these games to be compat... don't know if that will help or not, I'm not using the 64-bit version...
