How Do I Install A Multi Disk Game On A XP VM?

Postby ToolandDie » 19. May 2019, 04:43

Hi,

I am trying to install the PC game Doom 3 on an XP VM and am having trouble when it is time to switch disks. It tells me to load the second disk and when I do, and click "OK"......nothing happens. It will not take my input when I try to click the "OK" button; nor does it continue to install. Does anyone know a work around for this? Thank you in advance!! :D :D

How exactly are you changing the disks?

It might be easier if you copy the contents of the disks inside your WinXP VM, and run the installer from there.
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
