I've got a Unity game named "FirstReader" that I've saved to a CD.
On the CD I've got FirstReader.exe and FirstReader.pdb
When I try to run it on my PC I get the message "There should be 'FirstReader_Data' folder next to the executable".
What have I missed or done incorrectly?

Ok. I'll answer my own question. When I saved my game I simply copied the .exe file over from my desktop to the CD. I missed the similarly named folder that was also on my desktop (must clean up my desktop!).
I'll leave this on for anyone following who has the same problems.
If you're saving a game to your desktop, unity saves a mygame.exe file ans a mygame_data folder.
If you intend creating the game on CD/DVD, both these files need to be copied onto the CD or DVD.
