Seems there's a tad too much hit & miss for my liking. I've read of quite a few hassles with installing it on XP,which I had been suffering when this suddenly started happening in particular,(see picture)
Since then installing Broken Sword 1 has been a no-goer under XP. And never seen anything like this mentioned anywhere. No other games modern or WinUAE related have encountered this, only BS1.

@Fred. I'm not totally lost as I can always install it under my Win98 partition, but I just have a lot of junk on '98 atm, rather than on my XP partition. More so, I'd also been checking out how easily it installed on XP for future reference.

Apologies for going O/T. Going back on-topic, I really enjoyed D.O.T.T. & Sam & Max,even more so than Monkey Island 1 & 2! Probably a tie between the Indy adventure games.
The Broken Sword games are great titles in their own right, but I think they deserve to not be rated strictly alongside the Lucasarts stuff,just as the LSL series was different again, slightly different takes on the same basic concepts.
