Default How to install old games onto dosbox

I am having problems installing an old game onto dosbox. This is what I have done:
Open dosbox on the c: drive. Make a new folder named oldgames.
Open my old game named Pandora. Clicked properties and copyied the target. In the oldgames folder I made a new shortcut and pasted the game Pandora and named it Pandora. I opened dosbox, and mounted c:\oldgames at the Z prompt. Changed Z prompt to C:. I attempted to change directories by entering
C:\>cd c:\pandora and got an error message: Unable to change to c:\pandora.

That obviously is the wrong path. How do I get the right path?

It depends on a few variables, such as the game in question and your setup...

The basic syntax is:
Z:\>MOUNT C C:\DOSGAMES

Or to mount a CD:
Z:\>MOUNT D D:\ -t cdrom

There is a great guide here which cover most of it in depth.

Or you can check the Wiki for more information:

Thank you for your reply.

The game's probably not compatable with dosbox.


I don't have any problems mounting dosbox to my C drive.

Thanks for your advice.
