The first big hurdle is whether you can get it installed or not.  Back in the 
day, the installer was a 16-bit Windows program.  If you're using a 64-bit 
version of Windows, I think it might be very difficult to even get the installer 
to launch (requiring third party emulation, which I'm not sure is conveniently 
obtainable).

I would have, out of morbid curiosity, tried it just to see, but all of my 
Windows systems are 64-bit.
