:help: I have an issue. I know, I know. I'm not a registered user, so everybody will ignore me like on the other websites. But it's worth a try.

You see, I've recently figured out how to fix the AUTOEXEC.NT error I was getting when I tried to play old games on my XP. It's great. Now I've beat Quest for Glory 1, 2, and 3. I have 4, too, but every time I try to open the floppy version, it opens as a black screen then closes, no error message or anything. Police Quest 3 does the same thing, (I have Police Quest 1, 2, 3, 4, and SWAT.) it says something like "Cannot initialize your music hardware" then closes completely. When I try to run the CD voice version of QFG 4 with VDMSound (or without), it comes up with a window saying, "FATAL ERROR: Can't find text entry for 'videoPrompt'.
This can be caused by a missing INSTALL.TXT or INSTALL.HLP file.
Module : TEXTDICT.CPP<203>
Press ESC to abort..."

So... what the heck does that mean?! :tai:

I really need help... I'm sorry if you all just consider this some spam...

Did you try DOSBox yet? Sounds like you're pretty far in your try to make it work, but if you jumped over DOSBox you really should try it first.
