Abort, Retry, Fail ?
Whenever I run my application (.exe) from CD it displays the error message "Unknown Unit error writing drive C. Abort, Retry, Fail ?". The CD-ROM drive is 'C:' If I give the option as 'fail' the application continues with the execution.
Have you tried running it with System Internals Filemon? That should tell you what file access is failing to at least give you a clue where to start tracking down the problem.
I haven't tried that. Rich, Can you shed more light on that ?

Sure. Go to http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/source/filemon.shtml and download filemon. Run it up and set it to filter out everything except your process. Now all file access that your process performs will get logged out at the WINAPI level, complete with arguments and error values... take a look at what's failing and work from there.
But the application is in ROM-DOS. Looks like they don't have the DOS version.
Ah - sorry, I missed that bit. I really should read things more carefully.
