That's true.

@MrsReval it is super easy to use, you can extract the disk contents and then save those as folders, run the exe from inside the folders and it just installs. Are you using the old 4cd set for base game or a one disk DVD?

I've already tried this way but without any software. I've got an alert to insert the CD into the drive.Smile No, the basegame is on one CD. After the CD No. 1 from the 4 CD set had been distroyed in a brandnew drive I've got a new drive from Dell and had to buy a new basegame.

Yeah, I used the poweriso virtual drive to load the DVD/CD image and so when I got the alert to insert the CD/DVD I had something to load the CD/DVD on to. You could try daemon tools if you have an image.

Yes, I will probably use poweriso but I'm always waiting til I'm at a dead end.
