Not to worry, I love Skymap too and I've been using it with Windows 95 for
almost a year now; and I'm sure you can get yours to work too.  Make sure
that the line in your config.sys file points to the proper copy of ANSI.SYS.
Mine has the following line: 


I've got a program folder called "Space Stuff", into which I dragged the
skymap.exe icon using Windows Explorer.  Doing this makes Windows 95
automatically create a shortcut to Skymap.  Then all you have to do is
double-click on the Skymap Icon and away you go.

If it still doesn't work, please post to the group or email me.  I couldn't
live without my Skymap either. (Thanks again, Rob.)
