Windows setup instructions (.msi):
Run the installer, which will install VILEBox to your user programs (i.e., not for all users on the computer – this is due to a technical limitation in Windows 10).
Use the shortcuts in the Start menu to launch the games.
You can delete the .msi file once you're sure the games are working.
VILEBox-Mac-1.2.zip – Current installer for Mac (version 1.2)

Unzip the file.
Use the launcher icons within the VILEBox folder to launch the games.
If the games do not start from the icons, you can use the command line. Open the "files" folder and open DOSBox. Type cdlist for a list of commands to launch the CD-ROM games, or doslist for the DOS games.
You can delete the .zip file once you're sure the games are working.

I enjoy this collection of old Carmen games. However, the reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five is because I have a small caveat with one of the games. On WITWICS Classic, the game always seems to crash every time I travel to Kinshasa, Zaire. But other than that nitpick, this is a superb collection.

Games don't work on Windows 10 OR emulation
I made an ISO of the whole thing and also of each game so I can run it and it complains about files not being found and no disc. I've never seen such a bad product!
It won't run on Win 10 either due to 'This won't run on your PC' message 64 bit crap.
Archive.org has done it again! I miss the days before the site fell. Archive.Org in 2015 started focusing on Marxist propaganda and only that.

Thank you so much for this. I've been looking for the 3.5 version forever. I only have one question is there a way to make it fullscreen? Thanks again.

Spent hours trying to get the Chase Through Time to work through a Windows 95 emulator, and this is so much better. It's got pretty much all the games I want to play--I hope he ports Think Quick at some point, too, because I hate working through emulators. Or she, I don't know your gender, man, sorry. Anyway, thanks for doing such an amazing job. The download took two days, because it is large, but it's running now on Windows10 without a hitch. I can't believe you did this for free. Rock on.
