I want to make straight shortcuts to games to run them, but whatever I try, some games just cause errors. Take World Rally Fever DEMO from www.team17.com:
Note: you start the game by running LOADER.EXE in the C:\rally\ folder
If I run DOSBox directly or through Boxer, the demo will run if you mount the C: drive, enter the games folder and type "loader", but I want to launch it using a Windows shortcut. The following methods all cause a stream of "Illegal write to ...":
Shortcut: "C:\Program Files\DOSBox-0.61\dosbox.exe" c:\rally\loader.exe
In Boxer, Auto Execute window:
mount c c:\
The same errors occur when running using .conf files. I'm using WinXP Home if that matters.
