Workbench Installation problem


I am trying to install Workbench 3.1 on my newly downloaded WINUAE 3.0.0!

Harddisk is already set up.

When I insert WB disks and try to boot, I get AmigaDOS!

When I then type "loadwb", I get a message saying "Please insert Volume ENV in any drive." When I cancel this, WB loads...

When I now try the install program, I get that message again and after I cancel it a message saying "GETENV: string to long". After that, installation is cancelled.

Please can anyone help to resolve this problem?

Your WB disk is damaged. Get one which is original, unchanged. And leave the write protect switch on all the time.

Did you miss my reply to your email? I also replied that your WB disk is most likely damaged.

Dear Mr Wilen,

Thanks a lot for your e-mail, it got lost in the spam folder but I found it now!

My harddrive with Workbench 3.1 on it works fine now, I swapped the disks.
