Did you try copying all files to your hard drive, and then install from there?

hi ! ugh i really need some help here

this is my pc:

i have c,d,e,f,g,h,i as hard drive partitions

j , k as dvd units


i did as your instructions were written in the thread you tell us to follow but i got stuck when i attempted to "install".

i suppose because there is no install file on my twinssen cd (i own the original cd).

i made a screenshot of what's in it:



inside the previous folder K:/ there are only 3 files, the autorun, the manual and a splash with the same icon as twinsen, plus a bunch of folders:

directx, dos, helpe, helpp, helps, splash, twinsen, w95h, w95p, w95s

could you please help me to get twinsen work ?

thanks in advance

twinsen.exe should work fine.
