The "program files" path is write protected in Windows. Don't use those paths in your mount commands (unless you absolutely want to run DOSBox as administrator, NOT RECOMMENDED).

You can mount any drive/path as your C-drive in DOSBox (but don't mount the root of your C-drive either).

Smiling Spectre Do you tries to install the game in the same folder where setup located? It looks like that. Try to select different folder (preferably not in virtual CD space, if setup is there.

Simtower Installation

I'm having trouble installing/Running simtower in dosbox. I've installed win3.x and when running setup.exe it says "Cannot open the file named C:\simtower\info.exe". the dsobox status window shows

Warning: file creation failed: c:\progra~2\dosbox-0.74\~MSSTFQF.T\SIMTOWER.MST
Warning: file creation failed: c:\progra~2\dosbox-0.74\SIMTOWER\INFO.EXE

Any help would be welcomed
