    Default help installing Warcraft: Orcs & Humas in DOSShell

    I have tried to install a physical copy of Warcraft: Orcs & Humans so that i can play it in DOSShell. But Whenever i install it it says it needs the CD REGARDLESS of whether or not the game is in there. can someone help m e get it to work?

    Then put the CD in there, if it still doesn't work try a different CD and see if it's your actual computer. Also Warcraft: Orcs & Humans was released in 1994 so I doubt it will run correctly with Windows vista or windows 7 and maybe it might even have issues on winXP.

    Is there anyway you can use a image or .iso file? instead of using the physical disk drive? Would not hurt to try rite? ;o

    As I already bought the disc using an ISO seems like a waste of money.

    Did you already try mounting the CD with the commands?

    http://www.dosbox.com/wiki/MOUNT#Mou...a_CD-Rom_drive

    Z:\>MOUNT D D:\ -t cdrom

    keep in mind, you have to let dosbox know this is a CD, and not a harddrive or folder.
