Hallo,

first thanks for that great piece of software!

But then I have a problem: Dark Forces runs fine when I
copy an installed directory tree into the dosbox drive.
However, when I try to install Dark Forces from CD into
dosbox, the installer creates the first directory
"DARKF", and then reports an error for creating this
directory (I am using the german version, though)

Thanks again!
André

    you have write acces to were you want to install ?
    (not trying to install to a cdrom ? )
    (what happens if you install for the second time (e.g. when
    directory is allready there ? )

    I have full access to that directory (W2k admin rights). I
    can read/write the directory as I want. IIRC when trying to
    run it again, it complained that the directory existed (have
    to check that though).
    BTW: this happens under DOSEMU on Linux just as well (same
    error after creating the directory).

    Thanks
    Andr

    finally fixed it. the game itself is a bit buggy.
    they do doscalls on c:\dark\ (findfirst and makedir) both
    should return an error. Then they repeat the requests with a
    proper name c:\dark
