For example, "setup.ex.exe" in the root dir of the CD. "setup.dl.dll" in the installation dir. "install..exe" (sic) complains in a pop-up window that "setup.dll" cannot be loaded. That makes sense because the file is named "setup.dl.dll".

I can't find any help in the FAQ and the AppDB only talks about an old version of DPP. Is it normal for DLLs to be named *.dl.dll? It seems that that is the problem, yet no Windows users that I know of have complained about installation problems.

Check what filesystem did you mount CD-ROM as. If it's iso9660 try UDF for example. And wise-versa.

Some companies create cd-roms that can't be properly mounted or contain incorrect FS for the media.
