I'm trying to install Borland C++ 2.0 for DOS. When I run the installation is asks for a disk 7, but there are only 6 disks in the download:

Odd, it seems to work for me. Although they do really need to be redumped from original disks.

What's even more weird is that there is a manifest document and it lists only 6 disks. I think there are only 6 disks, but I am not sure why it asks for a disk 7 when I run it.

The download has an install.exe and 6 zip files. I'm unzipping the 6 files into the root folder, which then copies over the first install.exe.

I'm then running the install.exe from the zip files inside DOSBox. I asks for the install drive and I specify C. I verify the path. I proceed and it runs until it then asks for a disk 7, then the only option is to abort without it.

Might as well pick up the book too:

ftp://bitsavers.informatik.uni-stuttgar ... d_1991.pdf

I really think these should be added to download pages when possible.
