classic example i came across is Transport Tycoon. of course this isnt so much a win95 game as it was a DOS game. because of the way it wanted to interact with the sound card(DOS gurus will know what i'm on about) aswell as other things like display, and most importantly memory, it just would not run. well, it would, for about a minute.
XP(and NT dirivatives) do not like things accessing hardware directly at all, which DOS games grew up on working that way.(its as if its racist.. you can tell xp to be polite but it dont make it any less racist)
ps: to fix the issue, i downloaded a 'windows' version of the game which someone managed to create.
heh, this is going to sound ultra sucky, but in a lot of these cases, its much easier to simply install 95/98 (98se even better) somewhere and have a dual-boot system. Even when you get the game running, getting stuff like sound to work is usually nigh on impossible. You'll probably spend less time installing 98 than you will mucking around with the settings and still failing.
I think keen works - i seem to remember downloading and playing it a while back under xp . . .
From memory there is a patch released by westwood to get some versions of C&C working under XP... Try having a look on their web site, I'm pretty sure I've got the patch here on CD somewhere, I'll have a look later when I've got time...
