Many Issues Installing Nancy Drew: Secret of the Scarlet Hand
Hey there. I downloaded the trial for CrossOver and I'm trying to install a Nancy Drew game. I'm getting a lot of issues.

When I click "Install Windows Software" here, nothing happens. When I try to install manually, the following happens:

1. I get a bunch of errors during install saying "Setup.exe" and other game files can't be opened because the developer can't be verified. My options are to cancel or move to trash.
1a. If I click cancel, installation goes smoothly, but when I play the game (it does start), I can get about 5 seconds in before it glitches and I get popup windows saying:

Unable to open file Y:\Desktop\untitled folder[where I have the game, creative, I know]\CDVideo\CDTEST.BIN

Unable to open file Y:\Desktop\untitled folder\CDVideo\OPENA_OPENC_BACK.AVF

Runtime Error!
Program: C:\Nancy Drew\Secret of the Scarlet Hand\Game.exe
abnormal program termination

And then the game quits. I've tried a bunch of different things, including installing the whole folder, but nothing seems to work. Any ideas? I'm using the files from an actual CD of the game.
