An instructional video on how to install Oregon Trail 2 on a 64-bit (x64) version of Windows 7 or 8.

-River crossing videos will not play! Other than that, it should work perfectly.

Summary of what you need to do:
1. Acquire a CD version of the game
2. Locate your DATA folder, or a folder that has a file called "OREGONII.DAT". There should be other files in there including a "MOVIES" folder, a few "FST" folders, the Oregon Trail 2 executable file, and an INI file called "Oregonii.ini".
3. Copy everything except the "OREGONII.DAT" file and the folders into a new folder on your hard drive.
4. Open "Oregonii.ini" and look for the line "rsrcpath". Change the "d:\data" to reflect your CD/DVD ROM drive. Make sure the "data" location is mirrored/included as well.
5. Open the game and enjoy!

Want your game to be the cool 25th Anniversary edition? Download these files and replace them in your game folder only after you've made the changes shown in the video. Hopefully they'll work!
