The original Phantasmagoria includes 7 CD”s which are required to play each chapter of the game.

Run the EXE and it will instruct you which CD”s to insert.
Once ALL the CD”s have been copied to the hardrive the EXE will correctly setup, Move and Delete the files for you. It will also install the v1.1 Update patch which is included in the EXE.
