No wonder VDMS didn't work, it's for Win NT systems only. I'd say the best thing you could do is create a DOS boot disk. There are plenty of threads about how to create one, just check out the stickies. If you are getting into any problems or have got further more question just ask. - Oh, and post your config.sys and autoexec.bat, like someone else already suggested. Maybe someone knows which settings are wrong for wc3Im just running it in win 98, without any emulators, and Ive tried using vdms before but that never worked for me.
