Drives and folders you want to mount need to exist. Please show a screenshot with Explorer showing these drives and folders. What letter does dour CD-Rom drive have? Which operating system do you use?

Also, you wrote:
mount d d:\-t cdrom

That needs a space after "d:\" (and before "-t-")

Methinks you make too many assumptions. Find out for sure what the actual path of your GWBASIC folder is before attempting to mount it.

Edit: i.e., if you open command prompt and type

Code: Select all
c:
cd \documents\gwbasic


Would it work? I don't think the Windows 7 directory structure works like this. It's probably something like c:\Users\Your User Name\GWBASIC
I flermmed the plootash just like you asked.
