My 6 year old grandaughter's favourite computer game is an old DOS game I had years ago....Secret of the Oracle. For some reason I can't get it started. I've downloaded the parcel of books on the desktop, extracted the files, installed on the main drive but when I click the 'keen4E.exe' as directed, then press any key, the game doesn't start but returns to the 'keen4E.exe' screen. Can you help please? It's amazing in the world of computer games that Keen takes her fancy!
Thanks for suggestion VoG™. I've tried various combinations of operating system and display but when I click on the yellow/red MS DOS Install logo it comes up 'invalid program file name.' Maybe I'm doing something wrong.
Sorry for late reply...had to go visiting! Many thanks everybody for helpful hints. Will now try each one in turn. Actually, daxian, my first game on my first computer was a floppy of Keen! What I meant, DieSse was I downloaded and unzipped the files to C/keen. When I double clicked that folder it showed a KEEN4E file which, on double clicking showed a blue screen with purple boxes and the command 'Ready...press a key' That's the actual screen I used to start the programme with. This time, when I press a key, it returns me to the C/Keen folder. I'll post as soon as there is success!!!!
