So, VPC does not extract the restricted filenames from the image as DOSBox does; I suspected as much. If you look at a directory of the image mounted in DOSBox, all the non-alpha characters are changed to underscores. That is an important difference between the two systems; but again, it's not the only issue, and can be gotten around with Daemon Tools or so.
The error message stating that the program should be launched from the CD can result from the failure of any one of a rather long list of checks that the app performs.
