Unable to install on XP

Hi there guys

No it's not a single post, but it is my first one.

I have a digital version of the BR game in which I have copied onto my HD. When I go to run BR installer I get a message after the first install screen appears (the one with the Tyrell building) saying...

"Unable to locate the nessecary files. Please install from your CD-ROM disc"

I have all 4 cds' in the one folder and have even tried putting the entire contents of ther game into one folder to see if it will automatically run. Nothing I do seems to work

I'm running an Athlon 64-bit processor with Windows XP SP2

Any help would greatly be appreciated. I've noticed the majority of problems comes from after you've installed the game. Is there anything to help you install it?

Thanks in advance
:)

If you have just simply copied all 4 CDs into your HDD, then no surprise it refuses to install. How about installing it from CDs like that error message suggested?

Aha, I didn't figure out you made CD ISO images.

Yeah, it's a classic. 8)
