I have the archives silver edition. The setup program launches but none of the individual games will install.

Disk 2's install file is frontend.exe and it is Blood and Magic, the last SSI game for DOS. It does not run on my computer. Disk 3 is a demo of Baldur's Gate. Which you can get online any time.

There are collections that are currently available from GOG. Collection 3, which is the closest equivalent to the silver collection, does not contain Blood and Magic.

Suprisingly, there is a Dark Queen of Krynn collection on CD from GOG.

Blood and Magic is a Windows game originally so its provision in a collection is not as significant as the other legacy games.

K, the old Forgotten Realms Archives Collection 3, which is newer than the Silver Edition, will install Dungeon Hack but not Menzoberranzan. The other 2 games are Baldur's Gate Demo on disc 2 and Blood and Magic on disc 3. Blood and Magic doesn't install any better, like the silver collection it is supposed to install from frontend.exe and it doesn't work.

The new collection 3 from GOG contains only Dungeon Hack and Menzoberranzan. The original silver collection was beautifully complete and it's a shame it doesn't work.

The original Forgotten Realms collection was called "The Archives." It is described on the wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Forgotten_Realms_Archives.
