Myabandonware download is 599MB and needs a virtual disk - something I don't understand.

Looks like the website is offering an ISO version of the game CD. You would need to either burn it to a physical CD (a lot of people don't even have an optical drive any more, let alone a burner), or else install a virtual CD utility so that our newer installer would recognise the disk. Seems dodgy either way to me.

Without an optical drive you don't do much with a GPL original CD anyway... :P

There are safe places where you can get the zipped CD, just ask in private if you are in need. :wave:

If you get an .iso file just burn it on an small USB stick!

Easiest way is to get Win32DiskImager wich burns it.

Newer versions of WIndows (I think 8 onwards) don't need an ISO application. Just double click the ISO to mount it in Windows.
