Working with a bit of work (2015-08-24 11:14) bluemoons
To get it working, run setup and for each file it reports as an error, change its properties to read-only in your host OS then click 'retry' in setup. This will take a fair bit of switching back and forth as there's 20 or so files that the setup program is trying to protect.

The Way Things Works set up (1.0) returns errors because it is trying to make many of the files it is copying from the CD to the HDD read only however DOSBOX deliberately replaced FreeDos' attrib with a dummy version so it could not create problems for the host OS. Manually making each new file setup creates read only in the host OS makes the program think all is well and it continues.

This fix should work for TWTW 1.0 and 2.0. Can't test for 2.0 sadly as I dont have a copy (and can't find one).

In Win 3.11 under dosbox 0.73.
It returns error while setup.
But, in Wmware Workstation 6.3 in Win 3.11 (the same windows install pack), it is runnable.
