I have the free version of Daggerfall from the Bethesda website. Unfortunately, the FAQ on the site to get game running isn’t working (broken link). I can install the game, but when I try to run, it tells me "no cd found"....even though there is no cd with the free version.

I have seen several post here about getting the retail version WITH a CD to work, but no post related to the freeware version.

I’m running windows 7, and using the DOSSHELL frontend.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Got the game working.
used the following mount:

mount c c:\Dosbox -freesize 1000

mount e c:\dosbox\dfcd -t cdrom -label Daggerfall

Then installing the game from de E: to the C:\ partition.
In the Bethesda download file is a PDF included with more information.

I can install just fine, using the -freesize paramater. When I try to play, i get the message "unable to locate daggerfall CD".

Also, the link to the .PDF on the Bethesda site isnt working.

The "-label Daggerfall" part is case sensitive. When you mount the CD, don't write daggerfall or dAGGERFALL or anything else.

Also, make sure you use the latest DOSBox. 0.72 or older won't work.

I'm not 100% sure, but it seems to me that the DOSShell frontend does not have any options to configure multiple DOSBox mounts (which are necessary in this case).

You don't need a CD drive at all.

This topic has been covered a few times already. Read, for example, my post in the topic "TES 2: Daggerfall" (or simply use the search function for "Daggerfall").

Good luck!
