I'm trying to install my old game "Machiavelli The Prince" (see here if you aren't familiar with it) using DOSBox. I have a C: drive mounted and a D: drive as the CD-ROM (and I've tried both a folder on my hard disk and the actual CD-ROM drive for the D: drive). But when I run the installation, I get the following error:
The game needs 0 bytes of disk space.
You only have 0 bytes available.
Someone else here apparently encountered this problem with a different game, as you can read here. Unfortunately their solution is geared specifically to "Return of the Phantom" best as I can tell.
How do I get around this issue for Machiavelli?
In the spirit of this post, here are my specs (as best as I can figure it out):
- I have no idea what my motherboard is. I have a MacBook Pro, newly purchased this last January (2010).
- The processor is a 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo.
- I don't know the type of RAM, but I have 8 GB of it.
- I'm a little confused about the video board information; it looks like I have two, which doesn't seem plausible. The first is an NVIDIA GeForce 9400M with 256 MB VRAM. The second is an NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT with 512 MB VRAM.
- The sound board information doesn't seem to be very detailed at all. It says "Built In" and describes itself as "Intel High Definition Audio".
- I'm running Mac OS X version 10.6.3.
- The game is "Machiavelli The Prince", as mentioned above.
- I think I described the problem in enough detail above.
- The problem happens with 100% consistency.
- I'm not sure what's meant by "sound mode used". I'm using the default settings for DOSBox.
- Ditto for "video mode".
- I'm using DOSBox 0.74.
- I've tried mounting a local folder as the CD-ROM, mounting the CD drive as the CD-ROM, and even just installing from the mounted C: drive (which is a folder in my home folder). The program can tell when it's trying to be installed from a local hard drive and objects, saying that it has to be installed from the original CD (presumably as an old anti-piracy effort). Otherwise, the location of the installation is totally irrelevant; the problem occurs from any "CD" installation drive.
Thanks for any help!
