Tried to install however it states that the "path you have specified does not contain an installed copy of A-Train" despite the fact that A-train is installed there. I followed the previous instructions with the same result.

Install issue destination folder fix
Copy contents of atrainco to c:\

SOLVING file install destination issue. So I had copy the contents of the atrainco file to c:\ then run the install from dosbox from the c:\ drive. It will then allow you to select the proper destination.
copy/paste contents of ATRAINCO to c:\
mount c c:\ [enter]
choose destination "mine was c:\dosgames\atrain"

There seems to be a conflict between this version of the construction set and the version of a-train on the site. I was enjoying a-train fine but after installing the construction set I noticed my city would totally stall growth after a large station grew it's first road tile. No more roads, no apartments, no hotels, no office, nothing. I remember using the construction set extensively as a kid back in the day without this issue. Going to confirm it by uninstalling everything and re-installing just a-train without the construction set.

Squirt: You might need to *install* both this and a-train. That's what i did and it worked just fine... But if Construction Set complains, then i guess you didn't run install.exe from the a-train archive. (However, i could not find any message that prevented me from installing it *somewhere*, even if i tried with the pre-install location. What have you tried to run, and what message did it show?) The default installation directory is C:\MAXIS\ATRAIN, and my guess is that Construction Set checks to see if you have some particular file there (possibly A-TRAIN.CFG). If you don't install A-Train, and merely provide the folder to the extracted files from a-train.zip, that file won't be there.

Thank you very much for this game!
Unfortunately, it keeps pestering me to install it in the same directory as a working copy of A-Train (which I have), but each time I tell it where that directory is, I still get this same message. Has anyone run into this problem and figured anything out, or does anyone have any ideas?
