Installing Birth of The Federation

It's simple enough really, run the Setup program on the CD and install as you would any other application.
On the last screen of the install program is a tick box labelled "Launch Birth of the Federation now". DO NOT tick this box if: you are running Windows 2K/XP OR if you are using a coipied CD. It simply won't work.

Here's how you get round the problem:

The game will now run from copied CD & on Win2k / XP machines. I have also used this process to run the game on a Windows 7 Home Premium (32-bit) PC.

PLEASE NOTE: I REFER TO COPIED CD'S BECAUSE ORIGINAL DISCS FOR THIS GAME ARE NOW QUITE RARE AN SUGGEST YOU MAKE A COPY OF YOUR ORIGINAL DISC AND KEEP IT SAFE. I AM IN NO WAY CONDONING OR ADVOCATING USING PIRATE COPIES OF THE GAME.
