Ok, so to start off, I do own the game. I'm having to use virtual clone drive because the disc is too scratched. I need to know how to install the game once I have mounted the game onto the virtual clone drive. When I say 'open' it just gives me all the individual files of the game. Also, I tried running the launch.exe but when I click the install buttton it doesn't do anything. By the way, the game I am trying to install using virtual clone drive is Medieval Total War CD1. Basically, I don't know how to make the game files work together to install the game.
If we aren't allowed to discuss using virtual clone drive because of piracy issues, then can somebody tell me any other solutions to trying to install a game without using the disc to install it? Or could somebody give me a solution to fixing a scratched disk?
You can't fix a scratched disk, but you can burn the ISO of the disk to a CD and use that in place of your bad one. Unless the copy protection checks for something on the disk that the CD writer can't duplicate.
