Hi, I went through the entire Warcraft2 process, and it didn't work. I got a response in the DOS after the c: cd warc2 line saying, "Unable to change to: warc2"

Then, the next line which was c: war
it said, "illegal command: war"....

Thoughts?

I left a response for this on yesterday's guide for just now.

I completed the instructions carefully for Windows XP and now there is no dialogue audio in the game. The background sounds can be heard, but not the characters speaking. What do I do to fix this?

Hello.
I compared the film "Dangerous Adventures Adele" the game "Laura Bow 2 The Dagger of Amon Ra" and realized: the movie copied the game clean sweep!

In his evidence I cite a lot of screenshots!
