New for the 2006 VU Police Quest Collection owners. I have made a new installer it that saves having to use the original flawed installer first and then having to apply the DOSBox patch. Now you can install the Police Quest games in one easy operation. Fixes all known issues with this release. Fully XP/Vista/Win7 32and 64-bit compatible. Restores missing files.

Just insert your Police Quest Collection CD and run the installer. As with the DOSBox patch, the new installer can add the AGI version of PQ1 to the collection if the game's files are in the same folder as the installer when you run it. If you have the Mask of Eternity CD, it can add it to the collection, too.

* The standard Vista warning for old games should be observed -- because of its limited write access, avoid installing in the %ProgramFiles% folder ("C:\Program Files" on most English systems or "C:\Program Files (x86)" on Win 64 systems) or you may have problems with not being able to save configuration changes or saving games.
