Need to know what Windows Operating system you running.I'm not certain of a solution but this response & your subsequent reply to it will get you back to the top of the pile, where some one else in the know might see it.
Thanks to kryten I can now access my D: CD drive from within DOS.
The game booklet now says install the game by typing D:\setup at the DOS prompt. Seems reasonable and it starts to run (ie displays a couple of initial messages on the screen indicating that at least it has found the setup file) then promptly switches off my monitor with the display "out of timing". Don't know why!
If I try from within Windows 98 I get a DOS/4GW error plus a lot of diagnostics in the DOS window.
The game is still not installing. Any suggestions anyone please?
Today I tried installing the game on my Nephew's computer and at least it doesn't turn off the monitor and stop as it does on mine (with a TFT monitor)! It simply tells me that I haven't got a mouse driver, so I will go and sort that out. Then I suppose it will complain about the sound drivers! Anyway I'll keep plugging on.
I've got a long way along the line but it still give errors and simply won't install. I have given up - the game must be too old and incompatible without a lot of patience and knowledge. It 'aint worth the bother!
Thanks to all who helped.
