Replaced the archive with a revised version, adding QuickTime 2.1.2.59 (apparently required to run Frankenstein: Through the eyes of a Monster)

Yeah, read that on Vogons, now lets hope it doesn't break another QT game.
Man, all those QT versions were a real pain in the a*s..... :palm:

BTW, moi is always in for some testruns, but: download link seems to be dodgy ....???? Can't down the RAR apparently, only get a lot of garbage.

Seems the MIME type wasn't set right in the directory. Fixed.

I'm having issues unpacking the Windows 3.11 rar linked. I followed your steps in the dosbox tutorial (power dolls ran fine), then I found this thread and another for running SimTower. I follow your instructions in the latter, but am unable to find MAIN or File Manager mentioned.

I tried unpacking the Windows 3.11 file again and noticed that it was flagged as a failure. Thinking the extractor I was using might be the cause, I tried two others (free rar extract frog, the extractor, and winrar 32-bit). All failed.

I'm running Windows 7, trying to run SimTower. Files extracted cap, extractor error message cap, and dosbox illegal commands

Just wondering if I'm missing something or if there's a known issue or if I'm just SOL.

The error message means your download was interrupted before it could be completed. You need to redownload the archive. The correct archive size is approximately 14 MB (14*769*279 bytes to be exact).

I tried that before posting, but it didn't work. However the archive size wasn't correct, so I tried again. This time it worked like a charm. Too much porn in the background the first couple times, I guess. Anyways, thanks man :3:

I tried to follow this guide, but when I type in windows.bat it just says it's an illegal command. Currently I mounted DOSBox to c c:\example\, then I unpacked this download to that folder. Is this not what I'm supposed to be doing?

This is what you're supposed to be doing.
Check if you're currently on the Z: or C: mount (the letter DOSBox shows at the beginning of the command prompt) - if on Z: enter C: to change to the C: mount.
If you are on the C: mount and the problem continues, enter dir /w and tell me what you get (or post a screnshot, either way works).
