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:
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

I really want to play this game but sadly like others have said before, the files seem to be corrupted or will not be mounted. Please fix asap!

when I download and extract the iso and try to mount it, it tells me the disc image file is corrupted. can't open with windows 10 or daemon tools lite.
