Oh yes, DOSBox makes running DOS games without CD very simple. You need to use the MOUNT command with the -t cdrom key, for example:

mount D C:\Games\RA\CD -t cdrom -label CD1

You need to put a label on your virtual CD though, CD1 and CD2 are for Allied and Soviet campaigns, CD3 and CD4 for Counterstrike and Aftermath.

Ok, so i will tell ya:

1st: Download Red alert 1 somewhere

2nd: Make a floder in your Dosbox installed Directory called ISO

3rd: Copy/Move the iso there

4th:If you run Windows Se7en/Vista, you have to click on the dosbox icon, select properties, go to contabiliry bar, and mark the "Run as Admin" option.

5th: Make sure that you have mounted your C: Drive

6th: Mount your downloaded iso as D: (MUST BE D:, or the setup will not work), by typing "

imgmount D iso/YOUR_RA_CD_NAME.iso -t iso"

7th: Launch the setup program by typing "D:" then "SETUP".

8th Run the setup program

9th: After Kane has spoken (In the installation program), The program ends. Make sure that you have mounted your ISO if you wint to play. play the game by typing "C:" then "CD C:\WESTWOOD\REDALERT" then "RUNGAME".

10th.THIS IS A OPTIMAL STEP: You can make Startup .bat schripts to mount, play the game. Here is a example how a mount schript shoed look like:"

@Echo off

If "%CD%"=="YES" goto CHKDSK

imgmount d ISO\CD1_ALLIED_DISC.iso -t iso >nul

Set CD=YES

Set CDisk=REDALERTCD1

Goto Done

 

:CHKDSK

 

If "%CDisk%"=="REDALERTCD1" goto ALLREADY

If "%CDisk%"=="REDALERTCD2" goto CD2INSERT

If "%CDisk%"=="REDALERTCD3" goto CD3INSERT

If "%CDisk%"=="REDALERTCD4" goto CD4INSERT

Goto OCDINSERT

 

:Done

Echo The Allied Red Alert CD was mounted!

Goto EXIT

 

:ALLREADY

Echo You allready mounted The Allied Red Alert Disk!

Goto Err

 

:OCDINSERT

Echo There is a mounted CD, but it is not for Red Alert

Echo If you want to play Red Alert, Restart DOSBox

Goto ERR

 

:CD2INSERT
