If people are having trouble running the program such as I have had with DosBox, install dosblaster. it takes they annoyance out of DosBox. It only uses DosBox to run the game you don't need to mount a drive. I just make a folder called dos on the desktop and unzip each game into a separate folder within within it. Once you open DosBlaster, go to file - import game folder select folder **note to open the folder to see is the zip file had already created a folder sometimes it does sometimes it doesn't. Select the actual folder it self for instance:

In my Dos folder I created a separate folder call Theme Hospital. When I unzipped Theme hospital It created it's own folder inside that one. So in order for me to add theme hospital to my list of games In DosBlaster I just had to open the first folder labeled theme hospital and highlight the self create one. Select ok and wait a couple seconds for it to be added to the list Once added double-click then select the correct .exe or .bat file in order to run the game. May need to try a few in the list if more than 1 or 2.

I see Dosbox not mounting drive no matter how many times I have tried and came across this nice little program, DosBlaster.. It is pretty straight forward. Some games still will not work or require a disc still such as Capitalism. but the ones that I have found to work end up working on both x32 and x64.
Some games you don't need to use dosbox or any such program For instance again Theme hospital. Unzip to a folder you choose and just run the .exe (application). it may allow you or may not. before getting annoyed and resort to DosbBox change the compatibility settings and try again. All else fails then you need Dosbox.

OldGamesRocks added this comment :

If you are not able to run the game, try to install "Dosbox" and "Dos shell"
They are dedicated to run old dos games on the new versions of windows.
Oh and spread the word to fellow lovers of old games.

Man... I remember when the demo of this came out, I stayed up all night playing it. Awesome awesome memories. Ever since C&C/Starcraft era I don't really care about RTS games anymore, but the original Warcraft will always have a special place in my heart.

This is one of the *best* all-time game series of all, and *this* is the game that started it! Thank you SO much! It's my second favorite game series of all, and, being a game developer and playing games since 1984 at the age of 4, that's saying a lot! I just found this site and think I'm in L-O-V-E! Greetings to all and Happy Holidays! For the Horde! xP

Andy added this comment :

Hey guys here's what i did to get the sound working ingame. using D-fend reloaded, I changed my profile under sound to sound blaster. Then in the game's setup i selected sound blaster and DMA 5 for both music and digitized sound (all other options i made the default choice). The mission briefing still doesn't have sound but everything else does (units and music) so i think it might just be the version.

I grew up with this game and i can't wait to seriously play it.


Juanspyro added this comment :

The problem is that there isn't any sound to go with this amazing game! Is there a way to fix that?

i went and down loaded dosbox. I followed the directions and can see the game file. when i double click on it it brings up the dosbox screen and acts like it is about to load. then it flashes me back to the orignal screen where you double click to get started. i tried several times to get it to work with no luck. can any bdy explain why or how to help.
