Indiana Jones and his Desktop Adventures

Okay guys, I haven't posted in these forums in years but this is important.

I'm going to have to work in Africa for a couple of weeks, and all I'm taking with me for entertainment is an e-reader and a very old laptop. I've been filling it with old time wasting games, and because I've been on a bit of an Indiana Jones kick recently I figured I'd put all the old Indy games on there.

My heartbreaking problem: I can't get Indiana Jones and his Desktop Adventures to run. The laptop is running Windows 7. From experience I know I won't be able to access the internet much there, if at all, so I'm hoping to fix it before I leave.

Don't make me go to Africa without my desktop adventures. I'm counting on your magic, Mojo.

Current Game: Monkey Island 4 (ResidualVM)
Have you tried installing Windows 3.1 in DOSBox? Whenever I couldn't get a game made for Windows 3.x to work on newer PCs, that always did the trick.
