You have to mount the game folder to C:
mount c: d:\games\capitalism
Then you have to mount the same game folder to another drive, but as type of cdrom
mount h: d:\games\capitalism -t cdrom -ioctl
Then you have to change drive to the C drive you mounted
Then launch the game

I managed to play capitalism in dosbox Linux doing the following (thanks to @Good guy greg)
mount d /home/myuser/ -t cdrom -ioctl
# Note that /home/myuser is an arbitrary folder that must not contain capitalism CD. Just any folder of your hard drive

Trying to play the game via Dosbox on a laptop without a cd-player, and they ask me to insert the CD.
Have tried to mount a virtual drive via Daemon Tools, but the game will not start, Dosbox just stops.

Can anyone help, I keep trying to play the game but it tells me to insert the CD. I'm playing on a mac and I downloaded both versions and it didn't work. How do i open a .sit file?

Okay, I've followed the instructions here from Greg and the game is not working. Says I need to insert the CD.

About missing scenarios: This is a CD-Rip version of the game (see .nfo textfile in the archive).

I found an answer on google for the save game problem on this forum.
Follow these steps with dosbox.
Mount C C:\gamefolder
Mount D D:\ -t cdrom -ioctl
I have just tested it and succesfully saved a game, quit, quit dosbox, started the game on dosbox again and loaded the saved game. Hopefully it works for you as well.

I have no trouble getting the game to work, but I cant save a game. It just says "not enough memory". It is propably becourse it is mounted as cdrom, but how to get around this?

I'm using the version from GOG games. I tried mounting it as a CDROM as described above but it didn't work. However, uninstalling it from the C drive and re-installing it on a different drive did work.

I mounted it as a cdrom with dosbox and it worked, however when I try to save games it says "insufficient disk space the game is not saved"

Just mount it as a CDROM drive in Dosbox, then it will work.
mount d: [yourpath] -t cdrom

type setsound.bat to set up sound. It's the dos versioun so youneed dosbox.
Less cool: it asks for the cd ;)
