Forums: Index Other Warcraft games Help installing Warcraft: Orcs & Humans in DOSShell

I have tried to install a physical copy of Warcraft: Orcs & Humans on my computer by using the emulators, DOSBox & DOSShell. I did the Full Install option, however when i tired to start my first game thorough DOSShell it always told me to insert the CD regardless of weather or not there was a cd in the drive.

P.S.: I do NOT want to use an iso as i have already bought a physical copy of the game and it would be a waste of money to not use it.

P.P.S.: I should point out that my desktop tower as TWO disc drives. --Animalia555 (talk) 00:47, September 22, 2011 (UTC)

You could just play the flash version, if you're not offline. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 22 Sep 2011 3:16 PM Pacific
That would again be a waste of money because, as previously mentioned, I BOUGHT the game.

I wouldn't call it a waste of money. I bought it when it first came out, but if I didn't have to put in a disk (floppy!) to play it, I wouldn't. Unfortunately, I can't really help you because the one I played was on a Mac and it didn't have the evil DRM the DOS version probably has. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 24 Sep 2011 8:52 PM Pacific

I will consider it as a stopgap measure, in the mean time maybe somebody else knows something that can help with the problem.

P.S. Do you know if it is possible to save the flash game?
