I found the same problem. Try the following, which worked here:

   copy RO6Instal, from the CD, into c:\Progam Files\RPCEmu\hostfs

   run RPCEmu

   in RPCEmu, open the RO6Instal application directory and re-set the
   filetypes (luckily not too many!). The files in the Data directory
   are zips (apart from the compressed rom-images, which are not used).

   run !RO6Instal, etc

Two other alternatives

   if networking is available, copy RO6Instal from a RiscPC, direct into
   RPCEmu, or

   on the RiscPC, zip RO6Instal and transfer it, via flash drive, into
   hostfs. It can then be unpacked in RPCEmu.
