Just bought a new computer with Windows 7. PacWar will not play on Windows 7. Any suggestions?

Unfortunately, Vista and Windows 7 have abandoned support for DOS, and Pacific War is a DOS-based game. You'll have to install a DOS emulator on your computer. The most popular one, largely because it's free, is DOSBox, available at: http://www.dosbox.com/

Thank you, Capt. I downloaded DosBox and have struggled with it. I guess I don't understand what I'm doing. I have PacWar in it's own folder c:\PacWar but I can't seem to make DosBox find it. Any (very simple) suggestions?

From memory. With DOSBox running
mount c c:\pacwar
DOSBox runs from what it calls the Z drive. You mount your directory to its c drive and then change DOSBox to its C drive to run the game.
