Cheese-its & Rice!hehe

I guess I am giving it a try explaining. hehe

Well first you install DOSBox 0.74 by double clicking it.

It should guide you in installing it.

Once that is done just click on "DOSBox 0.74".

Here is the magic, you see a black box with some archaic text hehe

Now type, mount c c:\

It should give you a warning that you shouldn't mount C hehe

Well - I had no choice because this is the easiest way.

Now type mount d d:\ -t cdrom

Now you have your DVD drive active on drive D

Type D:

Then type INSTALL or SETUP

Try one or the other

Well just follow the on screen instruction and maybe you are home base

Or is that home run hehe

Yup, that's a very good summary, although mounting C: as the C: drive in DOSBox is really not recommended Happy

With newer versions of Windows, it is generally a good idea to move all the DOSBox files from the Program Files folder to the non-system partition, and have a folder there for everything related to DOS emulation (a folder for the virtual HDD, another for the virtual CD etc.).

Oh, I just pointed you to it, you still had to do the work.

As for Dosraider & Laffer, they don't leave any notice to me, but they'll be back, I'm sure. ;-)

If you got your games from Abandonia, perhaps it would be reasonable to ask for tech support at their forums?
