MSCDEX.exe

I'm trying to get an old game to work(Janes ATf) in dos and I need to get my cd to work. I have heard you need to do something with this to use the cd drive in dos. I have it on a dos startup disk and i have no idea what to do with it to get it to use my cd drive in dos.

I have xp pro, and it seems to look like add/remove programs doesn't have that in xp.

on a side note: If those are there for backwards compatability, why do so many old games not work properly.

getting my mouse to work in dos

I've been trying to get daggerfall to work, so a suggested solution was a dos startup disk. I can get into the game fine, but i have no mouse. they said to load mouse drivers for dos on the disk and to use commands for dos to use them.

How do I do all of that?

When it worked I had my card set exactly the same as it is now. I also updated my drivers but DF didn't work before I updated them.

I had the color depth to 32-bit when it worked, so that shouldn't be it, but I'll try it.

Daggerfall had worked the weekend before and the weekend after it didn't work. in Sandra it says my vid card doesn't support vga, but i didn'...

look around on the internet, there's a 2000/xp/nt installer that worked for me. make sure you have the cd path right in the z.cfg file for the arena2 dirctory.
