You should be able to copy the pinball.exe file from the Windows 95 plus disk set Are you familiar with how to copy from the DOS prompt from a disk to your hard drive? Below please find a quick tutorial on copying I believe that pinball.exe is on disk 2 of Windows 95 Plus.

From the DOS prompt-Copying a file

You use the COPY command to copy a file from one disk or directory to another.

Copying from a diskette to a Hard disk:

1 Insert the diskette containing the file you want to copy into drive A:

2 Type

COPY A:\{filename} C:\{pathname} {ENTER}

{Filename} is the full name of the file on the diskette.

{Pathname} is the directory (path) on drive C: (the hard drive) to which you want to copy the file.

If you do not specify the pathname, the file would be copied to the root directory on drive C: For example, if you wanted to copy a file called MEMO.JUN from drive A: to the root directory on drive C: you would type:

COPY A:MEMO.JUN C:\ {ENTER}

To return to Windows, type exit after the DOS prompt.
