Hey, I downloaded the program and went through all the necesary steps, but I got an error message of "The CD in the Drive is  not Inherit the Earth!"  when I try to install the program.  Any ideas for this one?



!!! Please I've been wanting to play this game for years, but haven't been able to. I used to love playing this game. I have the 1994 CD with me. Using DOSBox and the little walkthrough, but I still got two responses.

"The CD in the Drive is  not Inherit the Earth!"

I moved the CD to a folder on my harddrive and when I open it it says

"No CD-ROM drive or MSCDEX.EXE is not loaded!"

DEMO.BAT works just fine.

Double-clicking on INSTALL.EXE displays
"Setting up CD-ROM and Checking Media"

It pauses, then closes after playing an error notification.

I downloaded MSCDEX.EXE for Windows 95, but I'm not sure what to do with it, or if I need it.

I believe it is a problem with my cd drive.


I usually suggest people try using ScummVM (http://www.scummvm.org) to play the DOS release.


There is already a post on this to help people figuring out what you should do in installing, etc. it is a step by step guide and I am surprised that you didn't came across the guide. From what I am suggesting here is that it is better for you to go through the guide first. Here is the links to the post http://www.wyrmkeep.com/forums/index.php?topic=402.0 .  I hope that this will solve all the problems that you are facing.
