The National Burial Index 3rd Edition

Hi everyone, thank you for having me

Something a little different to games or films etc, hope I am in the correct forum?

I purchased a copy of The National Burial Index 3rd Edition and it will not run unless I have the disc in the drive. I have tried many emulators and also attempted extracting the contents so I can view without having the disc in the drive as my laptop does not have a disc drive, my desktop does.

Does anyone know how I can get it to work without the disc please? It is doing my head in, I even contacted the manufacturers of the disc and they tell me there is no way to run it without the disc in a drive, I guess they would say that!

I can copy the disc and the copy works same as the original so don't know why a emulator won't work.

Any help/ advice greatly appreciated.

Best regards

Ron

Scan your disc with ProtectionID. (Yes, that's an archived web page.)
