I have tested the install with SPS 1659 and it worked without any problems. Do you have "The Patcher" in your path?

Please StingRay can you update the slave anyway?

It's from 1999 I think it would be needed.

Quitkey for 68000.

Mem usage 512kb + 512kb fast

I've attatched the game manual.

My patcher is in the path, that shouldn't be the problem.
I have about 1.800 original games here and I installed them all if there was a whdload installer. About 3 or 4 have had that "copy error" problem. All could be solved with a redone since now so I guess there is something in the old program code that won't work on my system.

The old installer works fine with the SPS 1659 version, I have tested it, as already said. Hence the problem must be on your end. Please upload your version of the game, I will then check if the installer has problems with it.

Updated patch available, memory requirements have not been changed as that requires more work I am willing to do right now. Manual has been included, 68000 quitkey added and some bugs in the replayer have been fixed. The program files are now loaded directly from the disk image, any external files in old install directory can be deleted.
The install script has been updated too (but the old install script still did work properly!).
