I really need some help!
I am having trouble using DosBox and D-Fend.
I want to install and run the King’s Quest Collection on Windows XP, using the 3 Cd set.
I know there has been a series of topics on this, as it is a widespread problem among XP users trying to run Sierra classic games.
I have tried to follow the tutorials and advice from all the different Forums, but I just can’t get it configured.
What I need is somebody to guide me step by step on how to install, configure, setup, and run the collection with DosBox and D-Fend. (Sorta like an idiots guide for DosBox.) Lol!
From beginning to end. Complete, simple instructions from the time you insert Cd 1 untill all the games are completly configured in DosBox using D-Fend. (Each command prompt as if you were explaining to a child.)
If someone could do this, I would be extremley greatful!

I recommend you use the Boxer frontend with DOSBox. The following is my configuration file. Simply save it as Default.conf (to use with Boxer) or dosbox.conf (to use without Boxer) in the same directory as Boxer and DOSBox. It already mounts drive C: as a hard drive, and D:, E: and F: as CD-ROM drives. It also activates the 2x filter, which you can deactivate in Boxer or by changing the line scaler=advmame2x to scaler=normal2x.
# Config file created by Boxer Version 0.61.6
mount c c:mount d d:\ -t cdrom
mount e e:\ -t cdrom
mount f f:\ -t cdrom

Thanks, for your reply.
I replaced the original DosBox.config with what you listed and it said this:
Drive c doesn’t exist.
I feel so helpless! I’ve tried everything and can’t for the life of me, seem to get anything to work!
It is so frustrating…
The King’s Quest games mean so much to me. It’s really crushing me that I can’t get them to run.

Ther is a mistake in the autoeexec section. it should be:
mount c c:\
mount d d:\ -t cdrom -ioctl

Ok, now that seemed to set up my C: and D: drives.
A little bit of progress. My hope is building back.
However, a new problem has arrived.
Everything I type in d: gets me this response:
Can’t change to:

Make sure that you have a CD in your D: drive.
