Hi everybody, I am new in this community and also a rookie in dosbox, I need your help.

I'm trying to run an old game using dos box and win31, i mount the "c:\dos" directory and also mount the disk in "d:\". I copied the content of the .iso in the path "c:\dos\mates\IHMATH" and that is the path use to mount as cdrom.

1mount c c:\dos
1mount d c:\dos\mates\IHMATH -t cdrom

Then i just open win31 and install the game.

1c:2cd win31\windows.3win

Win31 starts and i go to run the setup.exe in disk d:\. The installation goes well, it creates a new folder in c:\ with a different path for the main exe file "c:\zeta\IHMATH.exe" in win31. But when i try to run the exe, windows says it requires a cd.

I tried also installing it inside the same path c:\mates but it doesn't work. And when i try to run the "autorun.exe" inside the drive d:\, windows says that the installation is wrong.

Thanks!

Hi, maybe the program checks the CDROM's label or something?

You know, you can also mount ISOs directly in DOSBox. 😁

Syntax is
Imgmount d cd.iso -t iso

Or something along these lines.

Thanks a lot!

I don't know why, with the imgmount command it worked. Now I have an audio software problem, with the drivers or something... but the cd problem is solved 😀

I will try to solve the rest. Thanks again!
