Disc image is corrupted cant mount the file :/

All you have to do to is extract the zip, change the .iso to a .rar, and extract with 7zip.

once extracted, open the INSTALL directory, and doubleclick install.exe.

For best results install on windows 7 or XP.

I downloaded on a windows 10 acer nitro 5, and every download and every program states the iso is either unknown or damaged

If there are any GNU/Linux users out there, I've got two methods you can use to read this weird image.

Method #1: there's the Unarchiver (unarciver.org). To use this program just type (without quotes) "unar Oregon.Trail.v5.iso", and this will extract the ISO to ./Oregon.Trail.v5/.

Method #2: FuseISO (sourceforge.net/projects/fuseiso/) can mount this ISO to any arbitrary directory, provided that FUSE is installed, and the user has read+write+execute permissions to said directory. Since it's a FUSE-based mounter, it doesn't require root to use. (Do note: I tried mounting this without fuseiso using the "mount" command, and it failed.) Here's how you do it (again, no quotes): "fuseiso Oregon.Trail.v5.iso [directory]". Be sure to replace "[directory]" with an actual directory.

Once you've got access to the files in this image, you can then use something like genisoimage or mkisofs to make a "normal" ISO file. (You might want to use "-l" or "-J" to avoid truncating the files to 8.3 filenames. Alternatively, you could use UDF, but I don't recommend that for anyone who plans on mounting this into a virtual machine running an old version of Windows.) You may also be able to run this program from WINE, although I have not tested this.

BTW, when I ran this game, I got some weird TLC launcher-thing that didn't seem to work. To work around this, just go to the installation directory (probably "C:\Program Files\The Learning Company\Oregon Trail 5" if you installed it on an old Windows (virtual) machine), and execute "ot5.exe".

The installation process is very complicated... Drop it. ????

Note to GOW:

Your computer is infected with spyware and/or bad browser extensions.

Anti-virus / Anti-spyware software needs to be updated constantly and often needs complete replacement every year to three years depending on the software product.

Windows 10 has difficulties opening many perfectly good ISO files and will not open any BIN/CUE files that I have seen thus far.

PowerISO CD Emulator much better then MS and works on most ISO & BIN/CUE files.

every time I try and download it on my PC it takes me to other sites for something else, I remember playing this game as a kid and want to give it another go please fix that problem!

Here is how to get it to work and not need the CD to play (I hate using CDs when I can):
Use ImgBurn (free) to burn the ISO. Yes, others have said this too.
You can then use ImgBurn to make an ISO of the CD you just burned to have a valid ISO.
To play without installing AND to play on Windows 10:
1. Create a folder on your hard drive where you want to run the game from, for example C:\Games\OT5. This path CANNOT have spaces!
2. Copy the DATA folder from the CD/ISO to C:\Games\OT5
3. Copy the Oregon5.Eng and Oregon5.Fst from the HD folder on the CD/ISO to C:\Games\OT5
4. Copy the three files, binkw32.dll, OREGON5.INI, OT5.EXE from the HD\Win folder on the CD/ISO to C:\Games\OT5
You should now have the Data folder and the five files listed above in C:\Games\OT5
5. Edit the C:\Games\OT5\OREGON5.INI. Add 'rsrcpath=C:\Games\OT5\Data' minus quotes under the [cdrom] tag. It should look like this:
[cdrom]
rsrcpath=C:\Games\OT5\Data
This worked for me on two Win10 x64 PCs. No compatibility settings were needed. If it doesn't work, make sure the path you put the game under (i.e. C:\Games\OT5) and the rsrcpath in the INI file match AND the rsrcpath is the path to the game folder WITH "\Data" at the end. Remember, NO SPACES in the path.
This also gets past installing the annoying and irrelevant launcher the standard installer installs.

Thanks for program and esp. thanks to those who gave the info to use the iso and Imgburn to get these running, now to get that pesky #3 to work

After trying some of the iso burners and having errors, I used ImgBurn. Worked perfectly with a burnable disc. Now I'm enjoying this silly fun game again!

If unable to open the file after downloading use Winiso to open

After you install the game this will let you bypass the TLC Launcher that will crash

Go to C:\Program Files (x86) open the folder The Learning Company you will c to folders Oregon Trail 5 and TLC Launcher

open Oregon Trail 5 on otc5 right click on otc5 go to properties at the top click on compatibility and try
windows xp service pack 2 if the game dont worry use the run compatibility trouble shooter

in windows 10 if you get a screen saying anything bout the screen it go away in a sec r 2
after you get the game to work make a short cut to the desk top

Hope this works did 4 me
