If you have "auto start" disabled, the CD will not automatically start. Some game like this function some do not... I have found for my system that GKII will install either way ... however, for the setup that I wrote I utilized the "auto start" format.
How do I find the audio and video acceleration?
Need to Change your Display or adjust your Video and Audio Acceleration Levels?
No problem.To change your Display
: (to 800X600 and 16bits for color, for example) Right Click-->on the Desk Top-->Properties-->Settings-->Advanced--> Adapters--> Display All Modes-->Choose 800X600/16bits True Color/100Hz. Click OK. To change your Video Accereration
: Click Troubleshoot from the Tab at the Top--> (This is your Vidio Hardware Acceleration) -->Move the slider to the right or left depending upon which effect you wish to take place... Click Apply Click OK-->Click Ok once more to close Display Properties.For the Sound
: Go to-->Start-->run-->Type: DXDIAG-->up comes your DirectX Control Panel. Let it load and then select Sound. Move the slider as you wish to achieve the effect or correct the problems with your game.
Of course always remember to click apply click ok as the case may be and restart your system.
I don't understand how come Inferno could install it so easily.
Heeheeheee! Who ever said that I find this easy?
I try different things and I take notes. When I find something that works for me on my system then I write the Setup Walkthrough for that particular game.
Also I found that after I used the Service Pack update from MS ...it deleted some of the needed .dll files from my system's NTDVM (XP's own DOSBOX) I did put up an article about how you can tell if your system is missing any of the system files. It's on my site in the section called The Library. You'll be able to find it there once I get my site back up.
