    Exclamation Display Doctor 7 Beta won't install :(

    I have installed Windows 98 in VirtualBox and the graphics are ****-poor, 640 x 480 16 colours. I have read on the internet to install Display Doctor 7 beta. It will not install. It comes up with, "An I/O error occurred while installing a file. This is normally caused by bad installation media or a corrupt installation file." I click retry and it comes up again. If I click abort, it exits the installation with this message, "Corrupt installation file!" Please don't tell me to install VirtualBox Addons, I have already told that and have found out that Windows 98 does not support them.

    I tried installing Display Doctor 6.53, it installed but it wouldn't alter the graphics. I've been working on this for a few nights now, with little progress. Help!!

    Try KVM if you have an intel-vt or amd-v enabled CPU.

    Also, Windows 98 is kinda dead nowadays

    I have found nvidia drivers for Windows 98. However, the installation fails because it "cannot detect any nvidia chip on your system" How do I configure virtual box to have Windows 98 see my Nvidia Geforce 8600 GT 512Mb graphics card?

    I have finally managed to install it, however the registration won't work! Does anyone have the Name and Registration code for the Display Doctor Beta 7 that actually works? ftp://ftp.scitechsoft.com/sdd/regcodes.txt These don't seem to work.

    You can't. There is no way currently for the virtual system to "see" your graphics card directly.
