I realize I might have missed it somewhere, but why did I get a .mdf file?

Because it is an MDF image file and you missed it right after the download link? Do you know Daemon Tools?

I found another way to solve it, thanks anyway.

Space: 1889
 
Just FYI, the codes aren't included for Space: 1889, but Rawcopy removes the need to enter the right one and it plays under Dosbox.

Good game.

Alas, the download no longer appears to feature the CD image with the games

I'll check this when I get home from work.

The missing file is now uploaded.

Thanks, now I just need to find a way to bypass the copy protection on Space: 1889. Not sure if finding a way to make the installer actually install the game properly through DOSBox would do it (vs. extracting the files to a folder directly from the image and running the executable from there) but for the moment whenever I start 1889.COM from DOSBox it asks for a year associated with a position on a chart which I don't have and haven't been able to find (it doesn't seem to be in the manual, though please correct me if I am wrong about that.

Any thoughts? Also any idea why the native installer fails to transfer the files? Perhaps an issue with xcopy or dpmi?

Well I feel silly. I had been trying to remove the copy protection via Rawcopy, except I had foolishly ignored the fact that it was showing the incorrect directory by default and I needed to select "no" in order for it to cycle back around to the correct option.

Incidentally, for future gamers looking to install the game, select option 2 for sound (Covox through PC speaker) as selecting the third option (Covox through Sound Master) will give you an error after the intro.
