Default SimFarm Closes To Dosbox After Sound Setup?

I've been trying to get Simfarm to run for a while now and am having trouble. I've got Dosbox no problem, but after I do the sound set up, it says "enjoy" or whatever then closes back to Dosbox.
I get the set up screen to load properly, just the game doesn't start after the set up is complete.
I've read some of the forums on this and have tried downloading a new version of the game and extracting it using both Expresszip and winzip then running and got the same results so I don't think there's a file missing... I'm just doing something wrong.
Any help would be appreciated!!

In DOS games, the setup programs are commonly separate from the actual game executable. This is also true here - to start the game, you have to use simfarm.exe .
