Maybe YES, but!!! :

I had the same problem as here: Error = CD must be in drive [Constructor]

I could not both: play the game and install full option (400 MB on HD)

I have DOSBox v0.72
I have Power ISO - unregistered version.
I downloaded game for free from some russian pirate site (I cannot remember the address)

I read advices and implied them. Exactly in queue like that:

,,mount f f:\ -t cdrom" (I mounted image of game in Power ISO program using this leter)
,,mount c c:\ -freespace 900"
,,F:\"
,,install" (c:\acclaim\cn)
,,autodetect of sound" (returned to DOSBox)
(run the game by typing)
,,c:\"
,,cd acclaim\cn\"
,,game"

Game was running like a thunder - all sounds and videos like from childhood.
Did not need any patch.

Anyway, I wish all brothers in pain and suffering - keep trying - finally you will succed.

All the best and have a good play,
Dariusz.

Maybe let the forum software delete such old threads automatically?

DELETION? Never!

Lock? Maybe.

Delete? The whole point is to keep these relevant topics as you never know when someone is going to dig out a copy of Constructor, attempt to play then run into the same problem. If deletion was a thing then we are doomed to forever repeat ourselves! 😀

Did I really write those posts? I'm reading them and it just doesn't read like me at all. Well, I suppose that's what 14 years will do to you.
