Confused

Yes, I know that this is possibly not the correct exact location on
the forum to ask this question. It's not that I'm lazy or hasty, it is that I
am overwhelmed.

There are a lot of "solutions" to things on the internet. That is the problem.
Too much information, and not tailored to the exact situation I find myself in.

Using Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium edition.

download is Dino Crisis 2 for PC, from MyAbandonWare.com

I have zero experience trying to do this.

With difficulty, I used Winzip to extract the download, producing BIN and CUE files.

Not knowing what to do next, I used IMGBURN to try to turn these into ISO files.

This appeared to require the burning of a physical CD, which I did.

Then I tried to launch the game. There was a small icon for doing so, but it only loads and repeats the animation before game start, never goes to the buttons that say "Start Game"

I then flailed around, utterly clueless. Deleted everything I thought related to the game. Downloaded again. Now, I'm getting a tiny box, with illustrations from the game, offering to install various things such as DirectX. I go ahead and install all the choices. Then I click "Play Game", which is an enabled clickable choice.

When I try to launch, getting error:

C:/Users/beatcat/appData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/GameExplorer/{a7b5a4a4-c2ca-4a4.../Play.Ink is not a valid Win32 application

https://ibb.co/9n4Z7sT

Downloaded VirtualCloneDrive next, and it appears as clear as mud, makes no difference.

Could someone, please, for gods sake, walk me through this?

Hi Bob

You may have down loaded the wrong format IE play-station not PC
this game still appears to have peer support at some torrent sites

Good luck

Hi Bob
I just downloaded and attempted to mount the ISO and failed at every attempt I looked into the ISO and got this error message::

How long did it take you to download the file?

Hi Jill,

Thanks Jaytee, I started to download it, but quit when I saw that it was going to take more than 20 minutes.

I thought a similar thing but the peers are slow to queue so the initial speed is a crawl then pick up at around 17 peers I did not bother seeding as there were no takers while I was up.
