First post, by silhouetted
Please be gentle with me as I am new to the forum and Dosbox. I have searched the forum for this error but not found anything.
I have been trying to install the 1994 game Magic School Bus Explores the Solar System.
I have downloaded Dosbox and installed Windows 3.1, including the SB16 sound drivers a S3 video drivers. It all seems to work successfully - I am able to view a majestic 256 colours.
I can also hear the Windows logon sound that reminds me of the glory days - that golden age when here in Britain we crashed out of the European Exchange Rate Mechanism, and our government was paralysed by five years of polarising arguments about Europe (plus ça change).
Anyway. I have acquired a copy of the game itself, which I am able to mount as an ISO image in Dosbox and then run from Windows 3.1. I can run SETUP.EXE from the mounted drive, and the installation appears to complete successfully. An MSKIDS folder is created on the C:\ drive with the application, and it appears in the start menu.
When the installation completed, it stated I need to restart the computer for changes to take effect.
The problem is, even after exiting Windows and Dosbox and restarting, I cannot open the program. I still get the same error message that the computer needs to restart.
There's not much help in the game's help or readme files, except advising users to disable antivirus software before installing, which isn't an issue as there isn't any.
Usually I'd go about debugging something like this by trying to find some sort of log file. Does such a thing exist? If not, how on earth do I work out what the issue is?
