If setup.exe is a 16 bit executable, try to run it using OTVDM

Doesn't DOSBox -X run Win9x games? Even if Windows doesn't.

I've used network over LAN. I have read the network over WAN works too, if you have one person with Windows server edition.

The online manuals for this game are illegible.

As I already wrote, in this case setup.exe is a Windows 3.x application, not a "Win9x game". And in any case DOSBox-X isn't going to run anything related to Windows (either Windows 3.x or Win9x) unless you install the relevant version of Windows in DOSBox-X.

BoxedWine and OTVDM run Windows applications without a Windows installation.

I have no idea what this is supposed to with Master of Orion 2.

That PDF is entirely legible if you zoom in.
