    Hi Herbie. I sincerely have no idea, but I can tell you that D-Fend Reloaded has no problem loading Space Quest I. I just re-uploaded the zip file with a few modifications, I hope it works better for you now.

    I'm getting an error when I try to install it and play it on Boxer. It says Unable to change to folder sierra, check that the folder exists and you have typed the path correctly. Then when I launch it says bad disk image. Any ideas how to get it to install? A friend of mine was able to solve this for me a few years ago on my laptop but I'm not sure what he did. Thanks!
