I am a huge Garfield fan and would love to play this on Windows 7 but when I tried to install it, it didin't work. It worked once before but I don't know on which system. Anyone have any ideas?

This is a really old one made for Windows 95. What operating system are you trying to install it on?

Have your tried using compatibility settings or "run as administrator" to install?

"Garfield: Caught in TV Land" seems to be an alternate title of "Garfield: Caught in the Act."
http://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/garfield-caught-in-the-act

The back of the CD case says it's for Windows 3.1 or 95,
http://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/garfield-caught-in-the-act/cover-art/gameCoverId,109354/
which means the game almost certainly uses 16-bit code (unless there are separate executables and installers for the Windows 3.1 and Windows 95 versions, which is unlikely). Games with 16-bit code can't be run on
64-bit Windows without some form of emulation separating the game from the 64-bit operating system.

You may have played it on XP.
Nearly all Windows 7 installations are 64-bit.
