Default Weird Aces of the Deep DOS CD version problem

I have searched the threads to no avail, so I wonder if anyone can help with this problem I am having?

The only way I can get my CD DOS version of AoD (recently bought on ebay) to work is to install the game from CD within 0.72 or 0,.73 and start the game immediately. The game then works. If I close DOSBox and try to run the game again, whether from within DOSBox 0.72 or 0.73 (or 0.65!) or via my frontend D.O.G. I get the following error message:

HMI Error: sw_sound 'read_config_file' Failed to open C:\Dynamix\AODCD\resource.cfg

I have tried mounting within DOSBox and using frontends all to no avail. I have tried installing the game to different folders, I have tweaked memory, sound and graphic options, but at the end of the day, the resource.cfg file is there, it is not write protected, and after one initial game something happens to then get the above error on any subsequent try!

I have 23 games in my D.O.G games list, I have been with DOSBox since 0.61 and over the years have ran 100's of DOS games in DOSBox, I have never come across any problem even close to this!

Oh yes, and I have tried copying the resource.cfg from the CD again, I have tried deleting it, I have downloaded the floppy version and tried that resource.cfg, I have copied the CD files manually, I have copied the CD files over the floppy files and vice versa, and I always come back to the same problem!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
