Allied General cd ISO version 1.1 - 137MB
Download ISO image of an Allied General cd version 1.1.
Extract 7z file to get Allied General ISO, 354 MB in total. You can burn this ISO file to a physical disk like CD or DVD with some burning software or you could mount the ISO cd image with virtual drive software like DAEMON Tools. Using virtual drive software is more convenient because you do not need to have physical game disk. All you need is an ISO cd image on your hard drive and virtual drive software. When you mount an ISO image into a virtual drive you can install the game and if installation went successfully you could play it with ISO image mounted on virtual drive. This is because the game could not run if you do not have a cd in your (virtual) drive and some of multimedia files will not be placed on hard drive during installation. Even with ISO image mounted on virtual drive you will probably need to adjust compatibility mode for application exe in order to run it under later versions of Windows.
