afaict, even if I never really tried, the only way could be through an image, possibly a plain .iso which one would be supposed to load, but certainly not via dosbox this time (dosbox would have no clue how to handle TR2 and 3). Mounting through a virtual cd for windows application would probably do.

so glad to hear that as it's just what I was hoping for

I know, I'd be happy to, but you see they're not gonna let me/us/anyone
actually so it goes that just the opposite pattern will rule: the installer itself pays no heed to whatever the cd drive hosts, the cd checks must be passed instead each time the game starts


P.S.

although I already did a couple video tutorials about these installers available here:
http://www.tombraiderhub.com/faq/tr1...tionalsoftware
under optional software
using Wink, same freeware I made my dosbox primers/tutorials with,

now I felt like making another one, 49-second video which I youtubed here:
