How do I determine that? I tried opening it in 7-zip ("open inside"), and nothing (seemed to) happen. Although, it did open up in notepad. I thought that was a mistake, though.

In Notepad. It is just a text file.

C2.bat:
@echo off
cls
havevesa.exe
if errorlevel 1 UNIVESA.EXE
ps.exe

Just out of curiosity, do you find that old games (Sierra-era, etc.) have less compatibility issues with Windows 8? Or would I have to try really hard to find a 32-bit version of Windows 8?

Try copying the installed folder to your real hard drive and try to set it up in DOSBox. Don't forget to mount your CD drive, too.
