Lotus 123? You can always burn floppy contents to a cd but for multiple floppies running a setup from the cd may not work if it was intended as a floppy install.

There should be an install.ini file on the first disk that tells install.exe what to do. You may be able to edit that .ini file for a cd install.

Check this forum:

I believe that references a different version than you have but Toolman59 says you can just copy the floppy contents to a cd but you have to make sure you copy the hidden file.

Copying a single floppy might work, but copying a set of floppies doesn't,

So you tried the method mentioned in the tek-tips link (making sure to copy the hidden file) but it didn't work when you tried to install from the cd you made?
